Means "stranger" in Latin. This was the false identity of Celia in Shakespeare's play 'As You Like It' (1599) when she goes into hiding in the forest of Arden, presumably a pun on the word alias. It was also used by author Ken Follett for a character in his historical novel 'The Pillars of the Earth' (1989).
