Julien Family History

This long-established surname is of early medieval English origin, and derives from the medieval given name "Julian" (Latin "Julius", a Roman family name of uncertain etymology, but thought to be an adjectival derivative of "Iuppiter", genitive "Iovis", the supreme god, whose name is akin to words for "sky, light" and "day"). This name, popular throughout Europe, was borne in the Middle Ages in honour of various early Christian saints, particularly St. Julian the Hospitaller, patron saint of travellers.
