Looking at this list, I'm wondering if Wikipedia is trying too hard to be inclusive. For most of these people, the praenomen "Gaius" is usually ignored; for example, yes his full name is "Gaius Julius Caesar", but the vast majority of references to him simply call him "Julius Caesar". There are really only a few historical people who are known simply as "Gaius": the jurist, the person in the Bible, & an alternative name for Caligula. (I happen to own a copy of E. Mary Smallwood's Documents Illustrating the Principates of Gaius, Claudius and Nero -- there Smallwood routinely refers to Caligula as "Gaius".) IMHO, these are the only people whom the name "Gaius" might pose confusion. -- llywrch (talk) 19:30, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
