Re: Is Julian too feminine sounding?

Oh I like it! I don't think it sounds feminine at all. It sounds handsome to me. I've always liked Julius too.

Julian... I think boy. Julianne, I think girl I would sort of pronounce them differently (girls Julie Anne)

I like Julian and think it is 100 pct masculine (altho can understand that little kids might get mixed up). I agree with PP that it sounds kind of British - prolly bc the only Julian I ever knew, is in fact British.

Re: Is Julian too feminine sounding?

My first Kindergarten crush was a boy name Julian, usually called Jules as a nickname.
I like the name myself.

I love the name Julian. And it was on my list for both my boys but my husband always shot it down. He always said he wanted "a real masculine, strong name that will suit him young and old." Whatever that means

Re: Is Julian too feminine sounding?

It is a traditionally boy name & while we looked at GN names for our girls, Julian never occurred to either of us. I always think of Julian Lennon when I hear the name.
