Fons nominis[fontem recensere]

Apud How 8 Famous Writers Chose Their Pen Names, legimus: "Charles Lutwidge Dodgson . . . adopted his pen name in 1856 because, according to the Lewis Carroll Society of North America, he was modest and wanted to maintain the privacy of his personal life. When letters addressed to Carroll arrived at Dodgson’s offices at Oxford, he would refuse them to maintain deniability. Dodgson came up with the alias by Latinizing Charles Lutwidge into Carolus Ludovicus, loosely Anglicizing that into Carroll Lewis and then changing their order. It was chosen by his publisher from a list of several possible pen names." Nexus hodie, 25 Iunii 2013, observatus. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 14:40, 25 Iunii 2013 (UTC)

Interesting, but it doesn't mean we should move: his name is given as "Ludovicus Carroll" on Latin title pages. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:51, 25 Iunii 2013 (UTC)
