 What’s in a Roman Name?
The second element is sometimes called simply the nomen ("name"), more precisely the nomen gentilicium or "gentile name." It designates the gens or "clan" to which the bearer belongs and is therefore the heart of the Roman name.
Praenomina are not regularly employed, the main exceptions being "Mark Antony" (a Shakespearean inheritance) and Gaius and Tiberius Gracchus, where the praenomina are needed to distinguish between the brothers.
*The use of "C." in the abbreviations for "Gaius" and "Gnaeus" is a fossilized remnant of an early stage in the Roman alphabet when C stood for both c and g; a good example of Roman conservatism!
