An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The origins of the name Julia are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the personal name Julian, which was both masculine and feminine in Old English. Consequently, both patronymic and metronymic surnames are derived from this name. The personal name Julian was originally derived from both the Latin masculine name Julianus and the Latin feminine name Juliana; these were both names of saints and enjoyed great popularity.

Julia Early Origins



The surname Julia was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Julias to arrive in North America:
