Hi, Bree -- this is a very helpful site. Is it limited to specific dynasties or do you want all emperors of the period in it? I'm thinking of Anatasius (491-518) Apparently had the nickname Dicorus, with his eyes of two different colors.

John and I were working on this years ago. If you want to expand the info and time, feel free to edit. Remember to adjust the time field in the metadata section. I'll be gone for the next few days, so I'm just stopping by.

Not sure... but maybe the reason I couldn't find a gens for Sidonius might have to do with his Gallo-Roman roots.[1]

Last night I read that there were 24 official gens in Rome. (There were more, but were axed very early on.) During the later Roman empire, the descendants of the Constantinian Flavii continued to reign ... and from the looks of it, the Aniciis and Juliis were somewhere behind the throne (sometimes on it). But there's a caveat with the Flavii gens during the late period, since the name was also assumed by Goths, Gauls, etc.. probably for political reasons.

Tough call. History seems to care more about his "Aviti" mom.[1][2]

English seems to list the family men as "Apollanaris"[3]

Variously, his named is spelled:

  • Sidonio Apolinar (ES)
  • Sidonio Apollinare (IT)[4]
  • Sidoine Apollinaire (FR)

On a side note, I see (internet) a lot of modern "Apollinari" surnames.

I've found lots of profiles for relations (uncles) of Sidonius Apollinaris that at the moment have LNAB such as 'of Narbonne'. I'd like to change it but not sure to what. I did find one source that refers to them as the Apollinares family, or I wondered about using Apollinari (seems to be the Italian version of Apollinaris) or Apollinaris?

PS: I'm not sure about the dynastic names for those of end of the empire.
posted by Bree Ogle
I thought you would say that:) But right now, a lot of the LNABS are something other than dynastic houses (sometimes wrong houses) or titles. The LNABS you'll probably have to switch, or the managers.
posted by Bree Ogle
I'll have to check the status of the naming fields, but really I thinkk Augustus, Augusta should be the CLN, with their dynasty name as the LNAB
posted by John Atkinson
Naming structure ideas:
  • I think it's easier to put Gens in the prefix field, ie. Flavius, Procopius, etc...
  • perhaps the LNAB should be the dynasty name for regular family. For the emperors and empresses it's probably easiest to put Augustus and Augusta in the LNAB (after the recent change in the CLN search function ... it's been wonky for the last 2 days).
