Baroness Rutilia Fausta (Fausta) (in Roman naming practice, the family name may come before the individual's given name)


The daughter of a jeweler of late 12th-century Milan. Name is Roman/Latin - Rutilia means 'Red-Gold hair'. Fausta is a given name that is still in use today, as well as being a Saint's name. Loves Rocks and Things You Do With Rocks, including gems, gemology, lapidary work, ceramics, and has even made makeup out of rocks. She also enjoys cooking (and eating!).
