    Part Three: Male Saint Names Ending In The Letter "S"

    Many Berries love boys names that end in “s” (myself included) and yet may be tired of seeing the same old Roman names like Augustus and Atticus on this site. So here is a list from “The Catholic Baby Name Book” of more obscure “s”-ending names that may intrigue. I’m not going to include all the names in the book because it would take forever and some of them are so cumbersome that I don’t think they would be usable in modern times. Not all of them are “unique” by Nameberry terms but I find these ones the most interesting. I can't help but think that many of the names are a reminder of the influence of Greek and Latin on the English language.
