Gaius

- this week

Gender: M Pronunciation: GUY-us Meaning of Gaius: "to rejoice" Origin of Gaius: Latin

Ancient Latin names are beginning to form a minitrend -- Marcellus, Aurelius, Augustus, Atticus, Magnus, Darius -- and this would certainly fit into that category. But though Gaius is pronounced guy-us, the teasing potential of the first syllable could be tough on a little boy.
