Its source is a Latin expression meaning "Valiant man."
This boy's name was used in Latin.
This name was born by several members of the ancient Roman Claudian clan, most notably the emperor who, according to legend, fiddled while Rome burned.
While historians are divided as to whether the fiddling episode ever took place, it is undisputed that Nero was a strange mix of talented dilettante and unmitigated monster. His name has survived as an epithet used to describe someone with a dangerously unbalanced mind.
