It would be nice if the names lists in CK2 contained not only the "local" variant, to be displayed in the game, but also a standardized translation of the name so that you can have foreigners rise to a throne without messing up the regnal numbers.
and so on. The first entry is the local name, the second entry is a name that is not displayed anywhere, but serves as a link to other variants of the name. You could write it like thisCode:english; Alfred, Alfred; William, William; John, John; Fitzgerald, Fitzgerald; anglosaxon; Aelfred, Alfred; Aethelraed, Ethelred; #ethelred may not be in the English name list but still ... Wulfraem, Wulfraem; #no real english equivalent but some in German german; Wilhelm, William; Johann, John; Peter, Peter; Heinrich, Henry; Wolfram, Wulfraem; # defined to be a variant of the anglo-saxon wulfraem arabic; Ali, Ali; Abdul, Abdul; Daud, David; # ...
which would work as well, but obviously that would lack the clarity of the method where you use some "standard" variant as a cross-reference.Code:english; Alfred, 0001; William, 0002; John, 0003; Fitzgerald, 0004; german; Wilhelm, 0002; #same as english "William" Johann, 0003; #same as english "John" Peter, 0005; Heinrich, 0006; Wolfram, 0007;
With this sort of system you could have King Pierre II of Anjou of England following King Peter I of Lancaster... Pierre could keep his French name but the regnal numbers would be, you know, correct, since the game knows (from the second row in the names file) which names are variants of each other.
It's all a very minor issue, but since the devs considered regnal numbers worthy of a DD, I thought I'd add my 2 cents proposal

Im really excited for this game. The character system in Rome is so epic, I cant wait to see an even better version.
I think he'll be to Rome

By sovereignty of nature.
Another set of possible epiteths is related to upbringing ("the Bastard", "the Fosterling") or education ("the Scholar", "the Historian").
Being the ward of a vastly more prestigous ruler could merit a epithet (like "Pope's ward" or something equivalent). Battles could give epithets via events; gain +1 martial and the nickname "Turksmiter", "the Lion", "Skullsplitter" etc.
Ofc epithets (outside simple describtors like "the Elder", "from Bremen" etc) wasn't that all that usual, but at the very least liberating the target of a crusade should give a nickname since it's such a mayor event.
