How did the Romans name their daughters?



Shortly after birth, Roman infants received a first name. The first names of boys came from a standard list of 22 names such as Marcus or Gaius. Female children, on the other hand, were simply identified by sequence numbers. Thus the second daughter of a Marcus Julius would be Julia Secunda.!  (I'll be number 1, cool!!).


From the book: Making Europe Volume 1
