    Question 1: The personal male name Suetonius what does it mean?
    I guess that it is two divided, prefix=sue and suffix=tonius.
    Another name with the same suffix is of course Antonius.
    Question 2: Would be interesting to know what a prefix=an could mean here too.
    Question 3: Any other names ending with -tonius?
