Name
it Giulio
Gender
Male
Meaning
Drift from the Latin Iulius and from the name Iulia to indicate an ancient and noble roman family, the Gens Iulia to whom belonged the great Giulio Cesar. Probably the name draws origin from the archaic form Iovilios which means “sacred to Giove” (Iovis); in spite of this, there are theories which relate it to the Greek word Julé with the meaning of “forest” or to the name of the fortress of Troy Ilio. Further interpretation wants it to be connected to the Greek Joulus with the meaning of “downy-bearded”.
