    I actually like the two "us" sounds together -- Caius Marcellus or Marcellus Caius. Sounds very Roman. But I can see where it might be too much for a modern child. I voted for Caius Marcel because I love the nickname Cai!
    Mom to Alexander Patrick (10), Madelyn Esther (7), Genevieve Susan (2), and angel baby Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014).

    Hoping to welcome another little one into our family in 2015.

    I prefer Caius Marcel. It's a handsome combo! I also think a two-syllable first name sounds best with your three-syllable surname.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I like Caius Marcel better. Marcellus is a bit much for me, and I think Caius Marcel flows better.

    I prefer Caius Marcel. Marcellus makes me think of Pulp Fiction (brilliant film, but I'm not sure I'd name my son after Marcellus Wallace).
