Anthony can be used as either a male given name or as a surname, and is historically a Greek family name used by the likes of Roman politician Mark Anthony. The name was originally spelt Antony, with the H being added later on a mistaken belief that the original spelling itself was wrong. Notable bearers of the name include Hannibal Lecter actor Anthony Hopkins and Red Hot Chilli Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis.
The name Anthony has several shortened forms, one of which being Ant, and this is used quite frequently in personalised registrations as it works in its entire form with either a numerical prefix or suffix on the registration.
