Lucius Vorenus And Titus Pullo - Who Were They?

Recommended Posts

Is it true that TITUS means big...

and PULLO means small?


I thought his name was something to do with shrimp, or am I going mad?


"Pullo" is a cognomen most likely derived from a diminutive of puer ("boy"), and/or the related pullus ("young animal"). Discussed here.


Although there may appear to be some connection between Titus and the Greek titan (bringing to mind a being of immense size), the praenomen of Titus is most likely of Sabine origin (the original meaning lost), with no connection to titans.
