Name location usage[edit]

Realize "Cornelius" is a name for one of the most important families of Ancient Rome. Was the name "Cornelius" ever used in ancient Middle East, or was it used only in the area of Rome (Italy)? --Doug talk 20:51, 15 January 2007 (UTC)


I noticed there is no references to fall back onto, to look up or follow up. Should there be some here? --Doug talk 16:48, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Probable hoax names removed from article.[edit]

These entries were added to the article by an IP editor back on November 16, 2005. They all have inexplicable names, and are supposedly consuls in imperial times, but I don't see them in the list of consuls here and don't recall seeing their names anywhere else. Google searches for these individuals only seem to turn up Wikipedia clones. So unless some source can be found, I'm moving them here as a probable hoax.
