Ausonina - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ausonius - Decimus or Decimius Magnus Ausonius (/ɔːˈsoʊniəs/; c. 310 - c. 395) was a Roman poet and teacher of rhetoric from Burdigala in Aquitaine, modern Bordeaux, France. For a time he was tutor to the future emperor Gratian, who afterwards bestowed the consulship on him. His best-known poems are Mosella, a description of the river Moselle, and Ephemeris, an account of a typical day in his life. His many other verses show his concern for his family, friends, teachers, and circle of well-to-do acquaintances and his delight in the technical handling of meter.

The name would be changed from Ausonius to Ausonina foloowuing the standard Roman practices for making a masculine name feminine
