    Question 123...

    So, if Octavia means the eighth born child, what would babies number one through seven be named? Are there even names meaning first, second third, etc. born?

    Septimus is for the seventh born, that's the only one I know.

    Sort of. If you look at Neil Gaiman's 'Stardust' the princes and princess are named for the order in which they're born.

    Una, Primus, Secundus, Tertius, Quartus, Quintus, Sextus, Septimus, Octavius, Novus, Decimus etc

    Yay! Neil Gaiman replied to me on Twitter once. It's still probably one of the greatest moments of my life, lol.

    Neil Gaiman rocks! I've met him a few times, he's such a sweetie, very personal, it makes sense that he's the type who replies to Liverpool girls on twitter And he's married to Amanda of The Dresden Dolls, how awesome is that???

    I like the Latin numbers too, and the Cornish ones are sweet too.
