    It can be, it means 'friendship' but it's also a girls name.

    I know nothing really, but I'd assume that you use a capital when its a name, and don't use one when it's not? :p

    The Romans did weird things with grammar. It's entirely possible that they didn't capitalise anything, and it's only done now in an attempt to make things slightly readable. Or maybe that was Greek and punctuation. Can't remember :(
