Name for 14th February- Titus

Roman praenomen, or given name, which is of unknown meaning, possibly related to Latin titulus “title of honour”. In the New Testament Titus was a companion ofSaint Paul. He became the first bishop of Crete and was the recipient of one of Paul’s epistles. This name was also borne by a 1st-century Roman emperor. It was later used by Shakespeare for the main character in his tragedy ‘Titus Andronicus’ (1593). As an English name, Titus has been occasionally used since theProtestant Reformation.
