Hehe, well, as I never cease to repeat, 'Gnaeus' is actually Latin for 'Cneve', so I have an Etruscan nomen myself.

The point is that the decretum which we recently ratified, is a bit tighter around the crotch when it comes down to names. Names from other cultures are fine, but they need to be latinised -- if they are members of the SVR, which Turan couldn't give me clarification on. I was actually not wondering about his name, I was wondering whether he was a member or not. Sorry if I caused any confusion :P.

Optime vale!
