English, from Latin "bearded" or from Greek "downy".

Julianus is the Latin form of Julian and Julius, found in old documents, with appropriate Latin case endings.

Jolyon was a spelling variant used in the Middle Ages and still in occasional use.

The Spanish form has a stress on the final syllable: Julián.

Julian may also be a female name but nowadays that is more usually spelled Julianne.
