Gens Lucretia was originally patrician, but later also included plebeian families. It was one of the most ancient gentes, and the name occurs as early as the reign of Numa Pompilius.

The cognomen of the patrician Lucretii was "Triciptinus". The plebeian families are known by the surnames of Gallus, Ofella, Trio and Vespillo. Carus also occurs as the cognomen of the poet Lucretius. A few Lucretii are mentioned without any cognomen. Praenomina commonly used by members of this gens were Lucius, Publius, Titus, and Spurius.

Nova Roma's Gens Lucretia was created when some members of Gens Gladia decided to adopt a more traditional nomen, thereby re-establishing ancient Rome's gens Lucretia.


Praenomina commonly used by members of this gens in ancient times were Lucius, Publius, Titus, and Spurius.

In modern times the most common praenomina have been Lucius, Marcus, Gaius, Numerius, and Vibius. The praenomina Publius, Quintus, Titus, Tiberius, Sextus, Aulus, Decimus, Gnaeus, Spurius, Manius, Servius, and Appius have not been used by the Lucretii in the modern era.
