Latin is not the root of English by eHow Friend
Latin is not the root of English. This is a common misconception. Latin is a Romance language, whilst English is East
Germanic. They both stem from a common ancestor known as Proto-Indo-European.
Latin pseudonym Rudolf S.
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, more famously known as Lewis Carroll, selected his pen name using the same ingenuity as his
greatest work, "Alice In Wonderland." By reverting his name Charles Lutwidge to Latin (Carolus Ludovicus) then,
reversing them and putting it back into English, he came up with Lewis Carroll. Try it yourself and see if you like it!

Herman is not a Latin name, it's German.
For nobility (aristocratic class) derive a name from "Patrician" i.e. Patrick. Alternatively derive from "nobilis"
which just gets you back to the English word "Noble"
