Charles, why don't we consider that these names are mere stage names? IE, Jannaeus, meaning "the two faced ass----", etc. Alexandra, and versions, meaning "only" the wife of Alexander, which "only means" the "defender of men" or the "defender of the faith?", Caesarion, "the son of Caesar", etc.
It seems more and more to be merely "staging" or "casting", as in casting a play! Naming the players!, etc. It seems all we got out of it all is a "play" synopsis!
Ron or Aga, if you wish? LOL
