    • n name A word by which a person or thing is denoted; the word or words by which an individual person or thing, or a class of persons or things, is designated, and distinguished from others; appellation; denomination; designation. In most communities of European civilization at the present day the name a person bears is double—consisting of the family name or surname and the Christian or distinctively personal name, which latter ordinarily precedes the surname, but in some countries stands last. Either of these name-elements may and (the personal name especially) often does consist of two or more names as component parts. An ancient Roman of historical times had necessarily two names, one distinguishing his family or gens, the nomen, or nomen gentilicium, and the other, the prenomen, distinguishing the individual: as. Caius Marius—that is, Caius of the gens of the Marii. Every Roman citizen belonged also to a familia, a branch or subdivision of his gens, and hence had or might have a third name, or cognomen, referring to the familia. This cognomen was always borne by men of patrician estate; and in the case of men of distinction a fourth name or epithet (cognomen secundum, or agnomen) was sometimes added, in reference to some notable achievement of the individual: thus, Lucius Cornelius Scipio Asiaticus was Lucius, of the Scipio branch of the Cornelian gens, who had won personal distinction in Asia. Women as a rule bore only the feminine form of the nomen of their gens: as, Cornelia, Tullia. But sometimes, especially at a comparatively late date, they received also an individual prenomen, which was the feminine form of the prenomen of the husband, or, still later, was given to them, as in the case of boys, in infancy.

    • n name In behalf of; on the part of; by the authority of: used often in invocation, adjuration, or the like: as, it was done in the name of the people; in the name of common sense, what do you mean? in God's name, spare us.

    • n name Synonyms Name, Appellation, Title, Designation, Denomination, Style.

An appellation is a descriptive and therefore specific term, as Saint Louis; John's appellation was the Baptist; George Washington has the appellation of Father of his Country. A title is an official or honorary appellation, as reverend, bishop, doctor, colonel, duke. A designation is a distinctive appellation or title, marking the individual, as Charles the Simple, James the Less. Denomination is to a class what designation is to an individual: as, coin of various denominations; a common use of the word is in application to a separate or independent Christian body or organization. Style may be essentially the same as appellation, but it is now generally limited to a name assumed or assigned for public use: as, the style of his most Christian Majesty; they transacted business under the firm style of Smith & Co.
