Charles!

Have you ever thought about the meager meanings modern historians give to Latin names? It has seemed to me, at least, strange that for certain personages of the past, our "experts" come out with name meanings, but for the vast majority of these "ancient" names, we are, it seems, left to our own devices!

And, more importantly yet, it seems no one of the Latin "experts" has ever devised a meaningful list of latin word meanings when it comes to names?

The question is "why?"
