Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Yuliana

Yuliana is the Russian equivalent of Juliana; although in Russian it looks more like this: Юлиана. Yuliana is also a form of Julia used by Spanish speakers (mainly in Latin America). All of the Julia female names can find their roots in Julius, an Old Roman family name most notably borne by Gaius Julius Caesar of ““veni, vidi, vici” fame (as in “I came, I saw, I conquered”) in reference to Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul in the 1st century. However, the Julius family name predates Caesar by hundreds of years. The Latins borrowed the name from the Greek “ioulos” (meaning “downy-bearded”) while the Latin word for “‘youthful” is “juvenalis” – therefore the Julius names have come to mean “soft-haired and youthful”. The youthful part is in reference to when a young man first sprouts the “soft-hairs” of his beard. Furthermore, some etymologists believe that Julius could be connected to “Jovilius” which means “descended from Jove (also known as Jupiter)” who was the supreme god in Roman mythology. The Julianus family of ancient Rome was among the most prominent of the patrician class and claimed direct descent from the mythological Julus (son of Aeneas and ancestor to Romulus & Remus, the purported founders of Rome in the 8th century B.C.). Arguably one of the most successful of all non-Biblical ancient names, Julius has spawned scores of variations among males and females across many different languages. Yuliana is yet another example of the persistence and endurance of this “youthful” name.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME YULIANA

Yuliana is a new entrant to the U.S. female naming charts, first achieving a position on the Top 1000 list in the year 2001. In fact, Yuliana debuted at position #691 back in 2001 which was her best year yet. It’s unclear to us what prompted Yuliana’s sudden appearance on the American female naming charts, but we think it may have had something to do with Mexican actress Yuliana Peniche who was known by Spanish-speaking Americans from her roles on telenovelas. In any case, Yuliana is at the very bottom of the Top 1000 list today at position #999 – we won’t be surprised if she falls off the charts by next year. There remain several options for parents drawn to the “Julia” names all of which are beautiful, traditional and perfectly suited for any “youthful” baby girl.
