Roman baby names
Roman people follow a different pattern of nomenclature than those which are used by other cultures of Europe and the Mediterranean Sea.
Roman baby names consist of given and family names, conventionally referred to as the tria nomina. Tria nomina is the combination of praenomen, nomen, and cognomen, these are considered as the basic elements of Roman baby names. In Roman naming system there is a use of both both personal names and regular surnames, which is its distinguishing feature. The praenomen is the personal name or given name which is chosen by child's parents. The second element is the nomen gentilicium, also known as gentile name, designated a Roman citizen as a member of a gens. The third element of tria nomina is cognomen which is an additional personal name.
