Comments for POMPEY:

For some reason, the town of Portsmouth in England - a major naval base for centuries - has the nickname Pompey; as does its football club. Not a bearer of the name, exactly, but certainly famous.

It sounds very close to "pompous", and it really IS pompous.

Reminds me of the city Pompeii.

The city of Pamplona in Spain, famous for its bull race, was named for Pompey the Great who incidentally was of Celtic origin.

Urg, as someone has said before, Pompey is pretty widely known as a nickname for Portsmouth here in the UK -- not something you'd want to name your child (unless you really, really liked the football team). Besides, it sounds awful, and a lot like "pompous".

Ancient Roman isn't a language... it's called Latin.
