BaltyToth Says:


I love the boy name "Britain." It's my fave. Call him "Brit" for nn.

AldabellaxWulfe Says:


Well, in my opinion, what makes it more legitimate is the fact that Britannicus is an actual name - albeit a very rare one, as opposed to Britain which has only ever really been used (to my knowledge) as a label for England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland collectively. Britannicus is actually linked to Britain as, while it's not a place name in and of itself, it was given to emperor Claudius' son after his conquest of Britain.

What makes Britannicus "more legitimate"? Britannicus isn't even a place name, or as far as I can tell even related to the name Britain.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I would expect the popularity of Brittany to make this name more usable, not less.

AldabellaxWulfe Says:


As far as place names go, it's OK, but I would much prefer the more legitimate Britannicus.
