Fact of the Day: Julias Caesar

Julius Caesar's parents may not have been the most creative people in Rome. Caesar had two sisters that were both named Julia.

Irrespective of his parents and the dual names for his sisters.

"Big" Julius did leave us with three important statements.
1. "Crossing the Rubicon" ( no turning back)
2. "The Dire is Cast"
3. "Veni, Vidi, Vici".

Certainly a giant of men as a leader.
Cheers

The most logical answer. I think in Roman times this was the norm.

And we make fun of George Foreman for calling his sons "George."

I guess they really liked the name

And Caesar named his first daughter Julia, so it must have been a popular name.

Maybe they forgot they had one already.
