** First, there is Gaius '''[[Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar Julius Caesar]]''', '''UsefulNotes/GaiusJuliusCaesar''', more commonly known by only his last two names.



*** Formerly known as Octavian



*** A common problem with Roman names. Most Roman families chose among just a few names for boys--for example, if a Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar had two sons, he'd almost invariably name them "Gaius" and "Sextus". For women, it's even more confusing--all the daughters were just called by the family name (every daughter of Marcus Antonius would be called "Antonia"). Informally, the daughters might be known by nicknames to keep them straight, but if you see a reference to "Agrippina", it might be any of a number of Agrippa's daughters or granddaughters.
* Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg -- a little lake in Massachusetts with a very long name. It more or less means "fishing place at the boundary/neutral meeting grounds", which New England humor has translated to "You fish on your side, we fish on our side, nobody fish in the middle".
** The lake is most often called Webster Lake, after the town it's located in.
