Meaning of the baby name JULIA.

  

JULIA.  Feminine form of Latin Julian (q.v.), and Julius (q.v.), meaning "downy."  Usage: America, Czech Republic & Slovakia (Júlia), England, Italy.

... Julius Caesar had a daughter Julia, and so had Augustus—she who married Vipsanius Agrippa, and the emperor Septimus Severus married a Julia, and we might go on enumerating the Imperial Julias of Rome almost ad infinitum, but the name has also been ennobled by many women of a later age.  Julia in The Two Gentlemen of Verona, by Shakespeare; Julia in The Rivals, by Sheridan; Julia in The Hunchback, by Sheridan Knowles; Donna Julia in Don Juan, by Lord Byron, all bear testimony to the popularity of the name, especially amongst dramatists and poets... (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1904)
