A nomen indicates which gens a Roman belongs to. A gens is a loose collection of families sharing the same nomen. It is the middle part of the tria nomina, i.e., the three-part Roman name.


Inheritance of the nomen is patrilinear, that is, from the father.

List of NominaEdit

The nomina are listed in their male forms. To make the female form, just replace the ending "-us" with "-a".
