Comments for SEXTUS:

The sex in this name is hilarious!

It's very immature to think that this name is "hilarious" just because it has the word "sex" in it.

I sort of like the sound of it - but I would never ever ever use it because of obvious reasons and possible teasing. Plus, what would be his nickname? Sexy? :]

I'm assuming this name isn't very popular nowadays.

Sextus is a disgusting name. I challenge you to find one more hilarious. In Roman mythology Sextus Tarquinius, the king's son, raped a noblewoman called Lucretia. After that she killed herself. Not a name you'd want to call your kid.

While I can't recommend anybody to name their child Sextus (the name has a nice sound to it, but the teasing would be severe and probably lifelong), I wholeheartedly agree with Anonymous User 1/31/2007, and I would like to add that calling this name (or any name, for that matter) 'disgusting' is downright stupid. I'm sure that a) in history, there were many honest and good men with this name, not just the one legendary rapist, and b) there's plenty of criminals named George or Angela or whatever, and it never stopped people from using these names for their kids.
