Taken from

Lucius Cornelius Sulla (Felix),
b. 138 BC d. 78 BC, Puteoli [Pozzuoli], near Naples
victor in the first full-scale civil war in Roman history (88-82 BC) and subsequently dictator (82-79), who carried out notable constitutional reforms in an attempt to strengthen the Roman Republic during the last century of its existence. In late 82 he assumed the name Felix in belief in his own luck.

It looks like great Roman leaders had an affection for names too.
