I have information about a relative (actually my grandfather's uncle)
whose name was Juljan/Julian. I couldn't find any record about him up
to now. This doesn't seem like a Jewish name. Can anyone tell if there
was a Jewish name popularly used with that name?
The secularization of European Jews did not start in America. By the
end of the 19th Century many middle and upper class Jews were adopting
secular names, and Julian/Julius were often used for Yehudah. Moshe
became Mauritz, which became Morris in America, etc.
