Curio Cen. Sal.
It is not the practice of the RR to approve names based on gods, unless it has been proven that such a name existed in antiquity. If you could provide proof of this, I shall consider making this change, my friend.
Практика РР не утверждает утверждения, основанные на богах, если не доказано, что такое имя существовало в древности. Если бы вы могли доказать это, я подумаю об этом, мой друг.

L. Livius v. c. et inl. L. Aurelio ces. sal.
For what it’s worth, there are a number of individuals with the name Aurelius Mercurius attested in third and fourth-century sources. The lack of a praenomen is a feature of the historical disintegration of the tria nomina in the Late Empire. Here are a few examples:
- At Salona (the Roman capitol of Dalmatia) there are several inscriptions which mention a collegium official named Aurelius Mercurius. Here’s a doctoral dissertation that describes them.
- A. K. Bowman (1969) has an article on one of the Oxyrhynchus papyri (2228) which documents an Egyptian military official named Aurelius Mercurius.
- A floor tile from the Roman colony of Drobeta in Dacia has an inscription that names Aurelius Mercurius as the soldier and master brick-layer who conducted repairs on the baths there (AE 1939, 19).
Of greatest interest, however, is a tomb from the reign of the Emperor Hadrian in the Isola Sacra Necropolis near Rome in which a man named M. Iulius Mercurius was buried.
They’re all admittedly late and mostly provincial, but they do exist.

Еще раз,Salve! У меня есть два доказательства и человек,что произнёс своё
слово о когномен Меркурий выше. Я утверждаю на базе двух источников, что
этот когномен был в древности.

И подкрепляю ещё свои слова словами гражданина, которые вы можете увидеть
Из всего выше перечисленного прошу, изменить мой когномен с Мерулы, на Меркурий
Спасибо!January 11, 2018 at 8:53 pm #12454
Your name has been updated.March 2, 2018 at 7:48 pm #12563
I am one of the original signers of the Declaration. Is it possible for me to change my name? I am primarily interested in changing my praenomen, but if I were to take a new nomen and cognomen, would that affect my patrician status?March 5, 2018 at 12:57 am #12572
I apologize for the delay in answering. I am fine with you changing, as one of the founders has already done so and retained their patrician status afterwards.

Dento Curioni sal.
Please change my name to Marcus Nautius Orca.
Gratias tibi ago.
Cura, ut valeas!April 4, 2018 at 12:27 pm #12629
I apologize for the delay. Your name is now officially changed.
Vale Bene!May 17, 2018 at 11:50 am #12693
I would like to formally request a name change to “Marcus Aurelius Rhodus”. I know that the cognomen is a bit unusual, but it is a proper Latinization of my birth surname, which I feel is in keeping with the traditional Roman practice.

Claudius Tuscus, Censoribus omnibus, salutem –
Re the website’s transfer denarii interface:
I was attempting to pay my taxes (yes, they have been in arrears) from my existing denarii (exactly 36), but the "Collegium/Societas" field is non-responsive. I cannot bring up anything, let alone the Aerarium.
Any help would be appreciated.

Iterum, Salvete –
Interesting. I see from my records that I paid taxes on April 04, 2018 – by PayPal. This must be where the 36 denarii came from (I thought it might have been for some service rendered at some time) – so I’m only half non-current on my taxes. But I still need some help (it seems) to get the denarii into the Aerarium…. Or could it be also that I’m current on taxes, but my profile/Album page is not updated?
As I said – any help will be appreciated. Valete.
