I have finished my studies of Latin some months ago, but I forgot to post the last part of my Latin Names series. The first and the second part dealt with male and female name. The post today is all about ancient place names. Some of them are not as usable as others. My favourite is Aventin, which is one of the seven hill Rome was built on. Aventin is very similar to Valentin and it also has the consonant V in it, which is quite fashionable nowadays. Adding an “E”, it becomes a girl name. In my sims game I have a father called Aventin and a daughter Aventine named after him.
