13: Settimio d'Olivio - New Alternate Name

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Settimio d'Olivio in May of 1999, via Meridies.

Septimus Octavius

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Spelling most important.

Septimus: derived from Settimio and is listed as a praenomen on A Simple Guide to Imperial Roman Names by Ursula Georges. [http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/roman.html]

Octavius: Listed as a cognomen on the same site.

Consulting onomastic herald(s): Colm Dubh and Brigida von Müchen, Gulf Wars XXVI

Further information was provided during Internal Commentary:

There are examples in later Roman times of names lacking the praenomen, but at no time do I think you would see the praenomen and nomen without a cognomen. However, Septimius Octavius might be a later form, which contains a nomen, Septimius, and a cognomen, Octavius. A Study of the Cognomina of Soldiers in the Roman Legions by Lindley Dean shows Octavius used as a cognomen (in late Roman period) on page 88. -- https://books.google.com/books?id=MF0KAAAAIAAJ Septimius is found as a nomen in "A Simple Guide to Imperial Roman Names", by Ursula Georges. -- http://yarntheory.net/ursulageorges/names/roman.html
