Your Hidden Roman Name

Recommended Posts

Flavius Valerius Constantinus, you're a crafty Clodian whose family altered the spelling of their patrician gens name as a political maneuver.

 

T. Clodius Nonus

(ConigDoTnhhuh -ghhh +luss)

 

**********************************************

 

Gaius Octavius, the hidden "Romans" in the Roman names you gave me reveal the first to be of Hebrew descent with imperialistic aspirations. The second is rebellious slave turned inquisitive Caledonian.

 

Caius Iulius Caesar = C. Isaacius Aurelius

 

Marcus Porcius Cato = Spartaco McCurious

 

*****************************************************************

 

Ursus, you are descended from a Roman soldier who spent his final days in Eburacum, where his name was discovered inscribed on his tombstone. Your cognomen indicates a family fondness for eels -- rather than bears.

 

M. Aeresius Murena

(rjmamsajreebeey -bejjy +iusun)

 

*********************************************************************

 

Spurius, you belong to the same crafty Clodian gens as Flavius V.C. above.

 

D. Clodius Romanus

(DROAOYWMKOCNODL -koowy +iusus)

 

Great sig, btw. Gotta love that Ambrose Bierce.

 

**********************************************************************

 

Antiochus of Seleucia, you're descended from one of Rome's most celebrated historians. Your cognomen of "Dento" indicates that your own writing has a bite to it.

 

M. Suetonius Dento

You are batting .500 here. Should get you into the Hall of Fame.

Gratias. Strange, I've never felt particularly martial or British. I suppose I shall march for five miles and then settle down to tea and crumpets.

Julius Ratus, yours was a tough one -- I had to make you an orphan. Poor you.

 

You were originally a member of the Fonteius gens, but you were adopted by Decimus Fadius Nepos. According to custom, you took the name of your adoptive father, but kept your original name of Fonteius as your adoptive cognomina...

 

D. Fadius Nepos Fonteianus

docoflove1974, your scramble is a bit long to work with. Could we try it without your middle name included?

 

**********************************************

 

The Augusta, obviously you are named for the festival of...

 

Augustalia

docoflove1974, you have a connection to Arthurian legend (as well as an especially lovely name), as you are the descendant of Ambrosius Aurelianus...

A number of my friends were interested in your incredible Roman name making abilities, so if you need more anagram-fodder:

 

vddia rnya enka

 

tnsriat sjeam oslonom

 

etwmtha loius dydwo

 

Omnes tres viri sunt.
