Anytime I here of a woman named "Julia", I tend to cringe! Julia, like so many other women's names seem to have other links that are not just connected to the times that they appear to live in. Thus Julia, in my mind, has all of the connections with the family Julia of Caesar, Julius! I just do not see how anyone else in power could use this name in what was a strictly controlled empire, without the consent or lineage to that family line.
Other names that make me cringe are Irene and Mary/Mariam etc. I just feel these are inventions that connect these lineages back to the martiarchial times!
But, it is probably just me, and that is my two cents worth.
