These young men were the children of Julia by her marriage with Agrippa; and being the grandchildren of Augustus, they presented, as long as they lived, an insuperable obstacle to the accession of Tiberius, the son of-Livia.
Augustus left Livia and Tiberius as his heirs; and by his testament adopted her into the Julia gens, in consequence of which she received the name of Julia Augusta.
The cognomens in this gens are denter, drusus, libo, macatus, and salinator.

 Ancient Rome - Julius Caesar
Caesar's gens (clan) name, Julius (Iulius), is also familiar in the Christian world; for in Caesar's lifetime the Roman month Quintilis, in which he was born, was renamed "July" in his honour.
Caesar's gens, the Julii, were patricians; i.e., members of Rome's original aristocracy, which had coalesced in the 4th century BC with a number of leading plebeian (commoner) families to form the nobility that had been the governing class in Rome since then.
By Caesar's time, the number of surviving patrician gentes was small; and in the gens Julia the Caesares seem to have been the only surviving family.

The second name or nomen is the name of the Gens[?] (family, clan), in masculine form for men.
The third name, or cognomen, started to be a nickname or personal name that distinguished individuals within the same Gens (the cognomen doesn't appear in official documents until around 100 BC).
During the Roman Republic and Empire, the cognomen is inherited from father to son, serving to distinguish a family within a Gens.

Augustus was a scion of the gens Julia (the Julian family), one of the most ancient patrician clans of Rome, while Tiberius was a scion of the gens Claudia, only slightly less ancient than the Julians.
Their three immediate successors were all descended both from the gens Claudia, through Tiberius' brother Nero Claudius Drusus, and from gens Julia, either through Julia Caesaris, Augustus'; daughter from his first marriage (Caligula and Nero), or through Augustus'; sister Octavia (Claudius).

 Julius Caesar's Temple   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Until then, the broad open space in the center of the forum had stretched from the civil government buildings on the western face of the Capitoline hill to the sacred complex of the Vestals and the Regia, the residence of their protector and sponsor, the Pontifex Maximus, the high priest of the Roman religion.
Now religion was to be revived based on the worship of dead and deified Emperors, and this marked a movement of the still current ancestor worship from the privacy of the home literally into the public forum.
There is no doubt that this was, at least partly, self-serving on the part of Octavian and the Gens Julia.

 Glossary
By the end of the Republic, however, there was a trend toward women having 2 names: the female form of the nomen of her father and her cognomen, which would be the feminine form of the family cognomen (Caecilia Metella Crassi was the daughter of L. Caecilius Metellus and wife of P. Licinius Crassus).
The nomen was termed as the nomen gentilicum and was the name of the gens (family or clan) and later as a political grouping.
For instance, a nomen ending in -acus was usually of Gallic origin, or -na and many in -nius were of Etruscan origin, or in -inius were found in the western provinces, or in -i(e)dius were of Oscan origin or in -enus or -ienus (for example, Labienus) indicate a tribe which originated in Umbria or Picenum.
