In Roman mythology, Lavinia (Latin: Lāuīnĭa) is the daughter of Latinus and Amata and the last wife of Aeneas.
Lavinia, the only child of the king and "ripe for marriage", had been courted by many men in Ausonia who hoped to become the king of Latium. Turnus, ruler of the Rutuli, was the most likely of the suitors, having the favor of Queen Amata. King Latinus is later warned by his father Faunus in a dream oracle that his daughter is not to marry a Latin.
- NN is the Latin abbreviation for "nomen nescion" or "non nominandus" meaning "name is not known" which is a standard across Europe for genealogy, newspaper reports and court affairs. This is more language neutral and globally acceptable than using the English terms "Miss", "son" or "daughter" in place of an unknown given name. It is also preferable than leaving the given name blank, as it clearly indicates the name is missing.
