On another posting I wrote of "Fulvii"  intending to mean more than one.  This is, of course, absurd as "-i" is second declension genitive whereas "Fulvia" is first declension (feminine).   The correct plural is, therefore, "Fulviae".   Confusingly, this is also the genitive singular (i.e. belonging to Fulvia).  Also dative singular, vocative plural.
Please forgive me, I am waiting for paint to dry.

It gets worse.  "Fulvii" actually means "belonging to Fulvius" who is probably Fulvia's dad.
I am working outside in the sun.   Gad, the heat!  Still, lovely day for spray painting.

In English "Fulvias" is certainly correct and anything else would be precious, dare I say. In Italian "Fulvia'' would be invariable, but an accompanying article would be feminine plural as in "le Fulvia", feminine because a Fulvia is a "vettura" by the way, and not a commonplace "macchina".
