Octavia is the feminine version of Octavius. The name is generally understood to mean "eighth," and during the nineteenth century, it was traditionally used as a name for an eighth child. Octavia was also a common name among the ancient Romans, as it was the name of a wife of Mark Antony and the sister of Augustus. The name is not widely used in the United States, but Octavia can be a unique substitute for Olivia.
