MENENIA GENS, was a very ancient and illustrious patrician house at Rome from b. c. 503 to b. c. 376. Its only cognomen is Lanatus. Cicero (ad Fam. xiii. 9) mentions a Menenian tribe, and Appian a Menenius who was proscribed by the triumvirs in b. c. 43, and rescued from death by the self-devotion of one of his slaves. (B.C.iv. 44.)

Praenomina commonly used by members of this gens in ancient times were Lucius, Gaius, Titus, and Agrippa (which later became a cognomen).

In modern times only the praenomina Spurius and Agrippa have been used in this gens.
