Octavius

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on May 11, 2010

Oh boy.  We have a little Roman conqueror on our hands here.

The problem with a name like this is, yes — it sounds pretty fucking cool, I agree.  But cool in the same way that the name Neo was pretty cool in the Matrix.  It’s fine in theory, but in practice it makes the kid a target.

Actually, this is an old Italian family name Octavio. I personally would not name my AMerican kid this name, but it’s not weird.

The Octavius in my high school was well liked. Never had his name made fun of to my knowledge.
