Thread: Tiberius and Augustus?
June 14th, 2013 10:43 PM #6
I love Tiberius and Augustus. Maybe Tiberius more. I also go for the -us endings (see my name lists at the end....we're planning on using Marcellus as a MN, and Caius is one of my top choices EVER). We like ancient names and Latin names, too.
Augustine is also nice, but I guess I am always wondering if it would be pronounced AugusTEEN or AuGUStine by the person wearing the name. Not that pronunciation should stop you -- my DH and I have certainly chosen names that most people often don't "get" but like later.
Good luck!Mommy to:
Amaré Elyse (2 years). Her name is the present infinitive of "to love" in Latin, and we pronounce it with an accent on the end, so it sounds (phonetically) like Am-uh-RAY. We love her name, and especially the sweet way she says it herself.
Job Marcellus (Born 11/6/2013). We call him Joby.
"Indeed, we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful." ~ James 5:11 ~

Tiberius I don't like too much (feel very 'heavy' to me). But Augustus is great, and sometimes my favorite of the 'August' family. However, now that you've mentioned Aurelius, that one is definitely my favorite of all. Pascoe Aurelius is awesome! Pascoe is very Easter though, sounds slightly out of place if born nowhere near Easter time.Updated Name List- http://www.ebabynames.com/list/eff115- Vote away...

I saw you just mentioned Aurelius... I love Aurelius or Augustus even as a fn... However, Tiberius I would only use as a mn. Tiberius feels regal, but heavy. Aurelius and Augustus are both much lighter. Between the two, I much prefer Aurelius- who doesn't love Marcus Aurelius. Plus, it's more unique to me than Augustus...Emiliana Pari (or Valentina Hasti?) Debuts July 2014Soren Pasha, Caspian Bardia
