  Roman naming conventions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In the naming convention used in ancient Rome, derived from that of the Etruscan civilization, the names of male patricians normally consist of three parts (tria nomina): the praenomen (given name), nomen gentile (name of the gens or clan) and cognomen (belonging to a family within the gens).
The second name or nomen gentile is the name of the gens (the family clan), in masculine form for men.
During the Roman Republic and Empire, the cognomen is inherited from father to son, serving to distinguish a family within a Gens.

 Roman naming convention
The second name or nomen is the name of the Gens[?] (family, clan), in masculine form for men.
The third name, or cognomen, started to be a nickname or personal name that distinguished individuals within the same Gens (the cognomen does not appear in official documents until around 100 BC).
In the beginning, the praenomen and nomen constituted a Roman's full name and were followed by the so-called filiation (a patronymic or indication of paternity).

Since a bookmark is automatically created when you specify a name for the checkbox, length of this name must not exceed 20 characters.
It could be hard to say what characters are invalid to use in a checkbox name, but I think if you can create a checkbox with such name in MS Word, it will be safe to create checkboxes with this name in Aspose.Word too.
