Magnus

Magnus, meaning "Great" in Latin, was sometimes used as a first name among Romans but was not particularly common among them, the most well-known Roman of that name being the third-century usurper. The name gained wider currency in the Middle Ages, various European peoples, and their royal houses, being introduced to it upon being converted to the Latin-speaking Catholic Christianity. This was especially the case with Scandinavians in general ad Scandinavian royalty and nobility in particular - as can be seen from the following.
