WDYT of Caius?

How about Giaus? (Guy-us)

Both are very old Roman names.. Caesar was Gaius Julius Caesar, for instance.

I really like the look of Caius, however, I read that it was pronounced keys and it made me like it a little less. I think I'd prefer it be pronounced like it looks....Ky-us. I'm not a fan of Giaus.

As Ky-us it's a great strong-sounding name. I like it alot!

I have a hard time picturing a Giaus, except for maybe a great-grandpa Gaius, kwim.

Maybe we're looking at the same spelling in two different origins:
Caius - meaning of Caius name

I guess it's Latin and Roman. *shrug* Ky-us is the Roman pronunciation. =)

Of course total Volturi association

If you are cool with it, the movie is going to throw the name into total Twilight association awareness
