Name Sighting – Romulus

I was flipping through the channels on a flight yesterday when I spotted a name I knew I’d have to blog about–Romulus.

The man who owns it is herpetologist and conservationist Romulus Whitaker. He doesn’t have a brother named Remus, but he does have sisters named Gail and Nina, a brother named Neelkanth, a wife named Zai and sons named Nikhil and Samir.

Update: Just spotted another Romulus–in a NYT article about actor Laura Linney. Her father is a playwright by the name of Romulus Linney.

  1. That’s great! I just found out I have a neighbor named Sirius – he’s in his 30s, so no, he wasn’t named after the Harry Potter hero.
