Amorran names are based on historical Roman ones, which can be more than a little confusing. This is because aristocratic Roman names during the Republic customarily consisted of three or more parts, the tria nomina of praenomen, nomen, and cognomen. Additional cognomen, or agnomen, were sometimes added as well. There were a severely limited number of praenomen used, which is why they were usually abbreviated in writing as follows:

  • A. Aulus
  • App. Appius
  • C. Caius
  • D. Decimus
  • G. Gaius
  • Gn. Gnaius
  • L. Lucius
  • M. Marcus or Marcius
  • M'. Manius
  • Mam. Mamercus
  • N. Numerius
  • P. Publius
  • P'. Postumus
  • Q. Quintus
  • S. Spurius
  • Ser. Servius
  • Sex. Sextus
  • T. Titus
  • V. Vitius
  • Vo. Vopsicus

The traditional naming conventions are mostly preserved by the patrician class, while the names of the plebians, the allies, and the provincials tend to indicate the decreasing influence of the convention the further one goes from the city of Amorr.
