Name of the Day

From an old Roman family name, borne most notably by the statesman Marcus Junius Brutus, who was one of the assassins of Julius Caesar. It is therefore sometimes taken as symbolic of resistance to tyranny. It was originally a byname meaning ‘dull’ or ‘stupid’, and is still only occasionally used as a first name because of its association with the English vocabulary word ‘brute’. Junius Brutus Booth (1796–1852), father of the actor Edwin Thomas Booth and Lincoln's assassin John Wilkes Booth, was explicitly named in admiration for the Roman who struck a blow for freedom in conspiring against an elected official who had become a tyrant.
28,795th in the U.S.
