Derived from the Roman name Iulianis, which was derived from Julius, which means “youthful, downy.” So if you name your son Julian, he almost has to come out with that adorable chick-fuzz hair, right? Chick-fuzz hair on babies is the best.

Actors Julian Morris, Julian McMahon, Julian Adams, and Julian Sands; football players Julian Edelman and Julian Vandervelde; musician Julian Lennon.
The name Julian has been in use since the Middle Ages, and was also used as a girl name back then, although it’s predominantly a boy name these days.
