Octavius (praenomen)
Octavius is a Latin praenomen, or given name, personal name. It was never particularly common at Rome, but may have been used more frequently in the countryside. The feminine form is Octavia.

At least in its feminine form, ''Octavius'' seems to have been used on occasion throughout the Roman Republic and into imperial times. The name was used by Maecia gens, gens M ...

In the plays, everything revolved around the Lovers in some regard. These dramatic and posh characters were present within ''commedia'' plays for the sole purpose of being in love with one another, and moreover, with themselves. These characters move elegantly and smoothly, and their young faces are unmasked unlike other commedia dell'arte characters. Despite facing many obstacles, the Lovers were always united by the end.Eick, JustiCommedia dell'Arte Origins The name '':wiktionary:innamorato, Innamorati'' is the Italian word for "Lovers".Rudlin, John.
