I may be wrong, but you would have a three part name if you were a citizen
of Rome.  Your 'given name/clan/family'  Then again I may be remembering

Is there anyone out there who could help me with creating a Roman name?  I
am looking for a name for a persona from the early Empire period, 1st -
early 2nd centuries C.E.  From what I've been able to find, I would be using
a name with two elements, nomen and cognomen, both in a feminized form.  My
questions from there are primarily these:
1)  Which name would a person be called by their friends, the nomen or
2)  I'm interested in using the name Drusilla, I've found Drusus listed as a
nomen and (from my minimal understanding of Latin) the normal feminine form
would be Drusa.  Would Drusilla be possible, also, as a feminized (possibly
a diminutive form) nomen for a woman?

My sincere thanks to anyone who can help me with this,
