BBC Radio 7 carry the series from time to time and we can "listen again" for 7 days after even in the far off Antipodes.

Quite a number of famous people are best known by their eke-names - a few that spring to mind are:
Plato
Caesar
Cicero
Napoleon
Stalin
Kafka

I have omitted the contemporary musical ephemerides, of which I wot not.


Caesar wasn't the cognonmen (ekename) of the Julius Caesar who conquered Gaul but, as I implied in my previous posting, it was the cognomen of one of his ancestors and it was adopted as part of the family name.

Good news. BBC Radio 7 is repeating the series from episode 1 on Mondays.

Each episode stays up for 7 days from broadcast, so you have 20 hours to listen to the first episode.

Well it is a bit different to the recording I have of episode 1. There is a lead in for a few minutes and a few references during the show that I'm sure I haven't heard before. Interesting :)

The way that BBC Radio 7 seems to program stuff, just wait 2 years and it will be back!

Interesting about the Latin cognomen...in Catalan, cognom is the normal word for surname (in Spanish the word is apellido).
