Your Hidden Roman Name

Recommended Posts

Tiberius Gracchus, you are a member of the Pedanii, a gens which gave to birth several notable Romans, two of whom were most noted for their bravery: Titus Pedanius, a centurion who was distinguished in the second Punic War, and a horse-soldier named Pedanius whose bravery was written of by Josephus at the capture of Jerusalem.

 

Your cognomen of "Elva" indicates light-colored (reddish-yellow) hair in your ancestry. (Despite the -a ending, Elva/Helva is a masculine cognomen.)

 

Your praenomen is "Decimus" (abbreviated as "D."). Your full Roman name is:

 

D. Pedanius Elva

= ulviedandakpe -k +s

Belisarius Ryan, you are a member of the Annaei, a family which produced many notable Romans, including the great rhetorician Seneca the Elder and the great poet Lucan

 

Your cognomen is "Raptor" -- a word though nowadays recognized as describing the most terrifyingly predatory dinosaur from Jurassic Park, in ancient Roman times it indicated one who was a robber who seized and abruptly made off with his prize. Your branch of the Annaei obtained this cognomen due to their unapologetic reputation of getting what they want.

 

Your praenomen is "Tiberius" (abbreviated as "Ti.") Your full Roman name is:

 

Ti. Annaeus Raptor

= onaaypsreaktrnt -yk +iu

Hi, Harry. That's not a lot of letters to work with. Do you have a middle name you can add in your scramble?

Harry Tuttle, since you didn't give me a middle name, I tried to see what I could get out of your short name as it stood. I don't know if you're still around, but here you go.

 

Your praenomen is "Titus" (abbreviated as "T."). Your signum is "Literratus," meaning "learned, liberally educated." Your full Roman name is:

 

T. Literratus

= HrtylTrtuae -hy +is

maryv, you are the daughter of a military tribune, Reginius Iustinus, who served at Camboglanna in Britannia and left for posterity an altar there which he had erected to Neptune, the god who is your family's special protector.

 

You bear your father's nomen gentilicium, as your name of "Reginia" -- along with a special cognomen your father gave you, "Vera" (meaning "true"). You are further distinguished by the addition of "Minor" to your name, as you are the younger of your father's two daughters. Your full Roman name is:

 

Reginia Vera Minor

= nnmgeee rjvrraoay -ejy +iii
