Ancient Roman Baby Name Ideas

60 ancient roman baby name ideasWe can thank Ancient Rome for a lot of cool things: aqueducts, roads, early forms of newspapers, bound books, and our calendar is even based on the Julian calendar. They also gave us some pretty cool names.

All old things become new again, so maybe it’s time to resurrect one of these ancient baby names. Check these out and let me know what you think.
