This page is linked to from Roman naming conventions, where it is given in this context:

The praenomen roughly equates to the given, or Christian, name of today. It was a personal appellation given to an infant on their day of lustration.

Could someone elaborate on what it meant in ancient Rome? —Vivacissamamente 09:54, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

I added a ref to eb1911 (text in Wikisource) which gives a reasonable explanation for Greece and Rome. Looking at this article and eb1911, I think the Greek and Roman meaning would make more sense as a separate article, like Lustration (ancients). Bob Burkhardt (talk) 16:33, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

I think this article must be improved by providing information about lustration in different countries. There is some information about it in article Institute of National Remembrance (Poland). But how about other countries?Biophys 18:14, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
