Some of the Latin "number-names" are in the New Testament, such as Secundus,
Tertius, and Quartus, but if the name in question is still Septimus, it
doesn't occur in any English translation of the Bible that I know of. It
does occur in the Latin Vulgate version, but with a small s, not as a name,
but as an adjective meaning "seventh."
