    Question 123...

    So, if Octavia means the eighth born child, what would babies number one through seven be named? Are there even names meaning first, second third, etc. born?

    Septimus is for the seventh born, that's the only one I know.

    Sort of. If you look at Neil Gaiman's 'Stardust' the princes and princess are named for the order in which they're born.

    Una, Primus, Secundus, Tertius, Quartus, Quintus, Sextus, Septimus, Octavius, Novus, Decimus etc

    I love Stardust! I've also come across the female forms; Quintella, Septima & Decima. There are probably lots of different versions in different languages. I know that Kensa, Nessa & Tressa mean first, second and third in Cornish

    Yay! Neil Gaiman replied to me on Twitter once. It's still probably one of the greatest moments of my life, lol.
