As you may have read in my other post, today is the anniversary of a new beginning in my life. And with that, I wanted to drop my name, which I feel represents the old me and bring in something new. I chose these names because I feel like they have meaning in my life somehow. I wasn't looking for something cool or anything, just a representation of who I am now. I know it is cliche to have a vote, but I really want all your opinions on this as this is the only time I will ever have a name change. If you have any other ideas or thought please feel free to post them.. Thanks everyone
So here is what I came up with....name change

Grigori is the old spelling of the Scottish name Gregory. Cant go wrong with that.

I voted for 天使 (Tenshi ) because among those names listed it was the one I liked the most.
but, as regards some possible Latin names:
victor - victorious
invictus - someone who hasn't been defeated, unconquerable
superator - someone who overcomes (and not superatus, which would mean the exact opposite!)

Okay, I have it down to 2 different ones.. After talking with some friends today at work and seeing the votes here on the forum it has come down to Phoenix or Superatus.. I like them both, but I have to say I am leaning towards Phoenix, which I wish I had thought of when I made this poll haha..

I'm not a Latin expert but take into account what I said before about superator/superatus
-us would be like -ed in English, -or would be sort of like -er (some who does the action) in English you have also this -or
vict-or would be like conquer-or, defeat-er
vict-us like conquer-ed, defeat-ed
in-vict-us like un-defeat-ed
So superatus means someone who has been 'superated' (well, you can't say that in English), and I doubt that is the meaning you want
