- Support. Julian (disambiguation) is the sensible title for a disambiguation page. --Wetman 08:23, 21 September 2005 (UTC)
- Oppose. There is not enough evidence that Julian the Apostate is the primary meaning as per WP:D. └ VodkaJazz / talk ┐ 12:08, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
- Support., It will get the term Apostate, off Iulianus' article. Also a Roman Emperor should preside over other Julians Thegreyanomaly 07:07, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
It is a well known fact that the name Julian derives from the latin name giulio. It refers to a disgustingly sexy and attractive guy. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:17, 27 January 2007 (UTC).
No... Julian comes from the Latin name Iulianus. Giulio comes from Iulianus. Thegreyanomaly 05:47, 13 February 2007 (UTC)
- Actually, Giulio is a late (Italian) manifestation of Julius, while Julianus is a derivation of Julius, and Giuliano is the late manifestation of Julianus. (Read "I" for "J" if you need.) -- spincontrol 02:36, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
That aside, where does that thing about "the Latin element related to the meaning 'sky.'" come from? It sounds rather speculative, and I've never heard it before. Anyone care to give a source for that etymological tidbit? Tarchon 20:33, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
The names were in no logical order, and one of them came in twice.
There are also four that link to nothing - should they go? --GwydionM 13:41, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
There is a move request at Talk:Julian_the_Apostate#Requested_move_2 to move Julian the Apostate to Julian, which would involve moving this page to Julian (disambiguation). Please discuss it there. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 22:03, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
So, 'Jolyon', a pretty common name according to searches both here and on Google. However, doesn't have its own article, nor is it listed on this article under alternate spellings. A quick search on a couple of baby name websites shows that quite often 'Jolyon' is redirected to 'Julian'. Should it be added here (and a redirect created too), or does it get its own article. 'Jolyon' experts of the world, have your say! Grunners (talk) 16:45, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
