Julia is the feminine form of the old Roman family name Julius, but it still sounds fresh and fashionable and at home in any era. Julia came into vogue in the 18th century and remains a classical baby name choice for girls. The French form of Julia is Julie, and the Italian form is Giulia, but today’s modern variations for girls are more likely to embrace the fanciful Julianna, the unisex Julian and the casual Jules.
