  1. It’s not bad for a start, Elaine of Kalilily, but I think you could do better. Something, say, like this?
    “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”
    Now, that sounds important!

  2. I like it, like the place names of other times that identified a person enough to make them unique in the village and surrounding area, like my grandmother, The Little Blue Haired Lady In the Yellow HOuse Who Walks Around the Block Every Morning At 6. Everyone knows who she is. I have been know for the last 16 years as Amelia’s Mom, such a Patient Woman. I sign her school papers that way, Amelia’s Mom.
    So, Elaine of Kalilly, thou art so named and recognized, go forth in grace and glory thou honourable woman. So says Amelia’s Mom.
