The meaning of the name Regulus is not known. However it was the name of a Roman general in the First Punic War. As a consul, he conquered places like Sallentini and laid siege to Brundisium in 267 BC. He was captured in BC 255m by the Carthaginians. He was tortured to death in the city of Carthage. His name was synonymous with valour and patriotism.

Regulus is also the name of a shining double star in the Leo Constellation. It is also the villain in the computer game series "Bomberman." He first appeared in Bomberman 64 as Regulus, and also in 'Bomberman 64: The Second Attack' as Bulzeeb. The name is hardly used as a surname or first name in present times.
