This name derives from the Latin “octō > Octāvĭus / Octāvĭānus“, referring to the gens Octavia, a plebeian family at Rome, which was raised to patrician status by Caesar during the 1st century BC. The first member of the gens to achieve prominence was Gnaeus Octavius Rufus. During the Roman era it was customary to give the name “Octavius” in honor of the eighth son. The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin "octo", meaning "eight"). Octavius, along with Solutor and Adventor are particularly venerated in Turin, where they dedicated the church of the Holy Martyrs, which houses the relics since 1584. The liturgical memorial is set for 20 November.
