Suedius Clemens ambitioso imperio regebat, ut adversus modestiam disciplinee corruptus, ita proeliorum avidus. Non Italia adiri nec loca sedesque patriae videbantur ...", of the use of this type of name change we have an example in Florence in 1434 we read in a register: "Opere cum consilio Chimentis Cipriani ser Nigi".
