Updated: October 2013Roman ~ One from Rome ~ Latin
|Barcaccia's Fountain, Rome |
The name has been around longer than most people think, and appears in the top 1,000 names in America as early as the late 1800s. Over the past 20 years, the name really began to show more promise.
Several years ago, an acquaintance of mine renamed her son Roman after feeling the name she'd originally picked was overused. Now that Roman is #159 in America, I hope she doesn't have any regrets. Since the name is still considered non-traditional and is both cute and powerful sounding, I seriously doubt she does.
