Along with other “J” names like Jayden and Jackson, Julian’s moving up the charts as parents look to replace the now-tired Jason, Justin and Jeremy clan. Though it used to feel somewhat wimpy and girly, Julian’s turned into a strong and lyrical choice. It’s especially popular among the celeb set, with sons of Lisa Kudrow, Jerry Seinfeld, and Robert De Niro bearing the name. Its gradual but steady rise started in the ’70s, and in the last decade Julian has really started to peak.
