—— Character names ——
Character names follow the old Roman convention of Praenomen, Nomen and Cognomen.

Praenomen – Personal name
Nomen – Clan or family name
Cognomen – Began as nickname, but eventually became heriditary to identify branches of the same family

The praenomen is used as the first name, and the nomen and cognomen are combined to form the surname. Unfortunately there is no way to implement male and female surnames, so I have just used the male versions.

Male first names
– “Gaius” “Lucius” “Marcus” “Publius” “Quintus” etc

Female first names
– “Gaia” “Lucia” “Marca” “Publia” “Quinta” etc

– “Menenius Agrippa” “Servilius Ahala” “Domitius Ahenobarbus” etc

—— Regnal names ——
Regnal names are chosen from the names of emperors and empresses that the romans considered if not good, at least not bad. They do not follow the praenomen, nomen, cognomen convention as by the time of the empire, the praenomen and nomen had become muddled together and many emperors had an absurd amount of names. I have used the Roman version of the names that we know them by rather than first names as nearly 3 quarters of the male list would be ‘Flavius’ in that case.

Male regnal names:
– “Gaius” “Tiberius” “Claudius” “Vespasianus” etc

Female regnal names:
“Livia Drusilla” “Antonia” “Agrippina” “Sabina” etc

Regnal surnames:
– The only regnal surname is Augustus because they all called themselves that.


Ironman compatible, not acheivement compatible until Paradox fixes the issue with the game version being different despite the checksum being the same.

Should not clash with any mods or updates as far as I know.
