Origins Available: English
The origins of the name Julyen are from the ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of Britain. It 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.

were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Julyen family name include Julian, Jullian, Julyan, Juliane, Julion, Gillian and others.
