Octavian was the name of Julius Caesar Augustus before becoming the Emperor of Rome.

Octavian Ioan Atanase Bellu (b. February 17, 1951 in Ploieşti) is a Romanian gymnastics coach, and was head of the national team, with interruptions, between 1988 and 2005. He retired from this position after a notorious incident in which several gymnasts were photographed by Romanian tabloid journalists as they were sneaking out from training camp to nightclubs. Although a moderately successful gymnast in his early years, Belu's success has been in the field of coaching rather than performing, and he has spent his adult life in this profession. He also served as an adviser on the staff of President Traian Băsescu.
