Meaning of Julia
Julia derives from the name Julius and has a history dating back before the middle ages. It was used for females with a familial connection to the name Julius in ancient Rome and can mean child of Jules. From Latin, the name means youthful.
Julia is an ageless name. Since Julia has been a top 200 name for over a century, you’re as likely to meet a 80-year-old Julia as you are to meet a 21-year-old Julia or a 1-year-old Julia.
The name has been on a slight decline since its high watermark in 2001, so time will tell if it continues to be a steady favorite or slips out of fashion.
That said, Julia is also an international favorite so it will likely stay relevant for years to come.
