Meaning:Title of honor
If you were living in ancient times, chances are you’d know someone named Titus, a popular name in the Roman community. It’s pronounced TIE-tuss and possibly originated from “titulus” (“title of honor”). It was the name of a Roman emperor in the first century, and the main character in Shakespeare play “Titus Andronicus.” Tituss Burgess of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” added an extra “S” to his first name, which looks nicely balanced against the double “S” in his last name.
