One of my favorite historical facts is that the city of Rome wasn't actually named "Rome." The Romans believed that if the true name of their city were ever known it would allow them to be conquered by their enemies. "Roma" is just what they called it so they didn't constantly have to say "That city in which we live, but cannot say the name of."

The city's true name has been lost to history, but there's serious speculation among historians and archeologists that it was "Amor."

As in "Roma" backwards.

One of the most successful cultures in history, whose legacy is still omnipresent in our culture 1500 years after the fall of the West, named itself the way an 8th grader names characters in their D&D campaign.
