Titus, once seen as a slightly forbidding Roman, New Testament, and Shakespearean name, was brought back to contemporary life by the TV series Titus 2000, and is now, at Number 316, by far the highest it has ever ranked, increasing in popularity along with other revived ancient names like Linus and Silas.

In the New Testament, Titus was a trusted companion of St. Paul, the recipient of one of his epistles; from Shakespeare the name is familiar via the central character of his tragedy Titus Andronicus, as well as appearing in Antony and Cleopatra, Coriolanus and Timon of Athens. Titus Groan is the protagonist of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast Gothic fantasy trilogy, and Titus Welliver was a character on Deadwood.
