'Common Roman name meaning "eagle" (cf. AQUILO), mentioned in the Bible, e.g. Acts 18:2. This is probably the source of (the mainly 19th-century) first-name usage, rather than the friend of Cicero who was one of Caesar's murderers, or the Roman general who was killed by having molten gold poured down his throat.'
The Aquila is a ship in the game Assassin's Creed III.
Variations: Aquilina, Aquilla, Aquilo
