The name is a French form of Julius

Jules was borne by several notable French personages, but the most notable and the one who may have introduced this name to the English-speaking world is French Sci-Fi writer, Jules Verne (1828-1905).

The name appeared in the U.S. top 1000 between 1880 and 1961. It is uncertain if Verne propelled this name to popularity or if it was already used among Franco-American families. The highest he ranked in U.S. naming history was in # 401 in 1893.

As of 2010, he was the 10th most popular male name in France, his rankings in other countries are as follows:

  • # 16 (Belgium, 2008)
  • # 219 (Netherlands, 2011)
