So I have an abnormal obessession with Ancient Rome and Greece, so I was playing around with some names and I came up with these combos. I have slightly changed and matched some while other are actual names of historical figures. I played around with some so that people who know their Roman history might be able to pick out a few connections (:

So what do you think? Are any of them something that could be used in real life? Or should I just keep them as guilty pleasures to name my pets someday? (:

Thanks Maggie. I really, really, really like Alexander Helios (probably more than I should :D) Would it be weird to name a child after Cleopatra and Marc Antony's son? Or would not enough people make the connection?

I don't think many people would make the connection, Rose. I certainly wouldn't have known if you hadn't said something.
