Jeffrey Clemens, a commenter here, is warning us that the next pope might name himself Sixtus Xystus the Sixth, no kidding.
They’re two spellings of the same name, and the last pope with that name was Pope Sixtus V (1585-1590).
Sixtus Xystus doesn’t mean 666 anyway, so I suppose Jeffrey was joking.

 Letters (This Rock: November 2003)
In his piece "Shadowy Popes" ("Frontispiece," July-August 2003), Karl Keating wrote that Gelasius I (492—496) was the first pope to use "Vicar of Christ" as a title.
