Julian is a common male given name in Germany, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, France (as Julien), Italy (as Giuliano), Spain, Latin America (as Julián in Spanish and Juliano or Julião in Portuguese) and elsewhere.

The name literally means, in Latin, "belonging to Julius", hence its use for the Julian calendar introduced by Julius Caesar. Some families have taken it as a female name, possibly due to the influence of the French feminine form, Julienne. Juliana is the feminine form of this name in the Portuguese and the Spanish languages, and Giuliana is its Italian version.
