I've met at least three people over the years called Seven. I always assumed it might be a name from another culture, but I never bothered to check.
Someone beat me to the Roman child-numbering system. But I have to wonder how many of these real Sevens are named after the 1996 Seinfeld example (in context, it was in honor of Mickey Mantle, by the way), and how many are not. Maybe one will get together with an Eleven named after Stranger Things and open up a convenience store.

Most of those aren't names. Quintus, Sextus, and Septimus were praenomia. Ocavianus was a praenomen later, modeled after the nomen Octavius. They didn't refer to birth order, rather the month one was born in. Presumably one who could have been named the nonexistent Tertius was instead called Marcus. But this connection wasn't known by everybody in the Republican period--by then they had become just names, not necessarily named after month born any more. Apparently some women were named Prima, Secunda, etc, but I would guess these were less "names" and more an expansion of calling her Minor or Maior, with recordkeeping omitting a redundant-seeming first name ("everybody knows she'd be Julia, you don't need to write it down.")

Bonus: Postumus doesn't mean posthumous--but it usually indicates it, because it means "the final."

Shqipri is, according to wiktionary, the Albanian word for Albania. Shqipria is just with an added feminine suffix. Shqiperije is perhaps just creative spelling.
I don't know how you fare with ipa, but /ʃcipəˈɾia/ is the pronunciation wiktionary gives, which is sort of shkip-uh-REE-a (where the K is sound that doesn't really exist in English, and the UH is a schwa like the A in "about").
So my guess would be that Shqiperije is either the same, or the same but with "yeh" as the final syllable.

They were both praenomina and ordinal numbers. Don't you think that someone named Quintus wouldn't pause to think that the expression for, say, "the fifth soldier" ("miles quintus") would sound an awful lot like his name? Or what do you think Latin used for ordinal numbers? Like Russians, Romans had three names (usually), so that's why their praenomina didn't matter all that much in the long run of things.

Postumus does mean "posthumous" by the way, it indicates the kid was born after his dad already died. So, yes, final, kinda, but not really.
