Saint Boethius or Saint Severinus?

I just learned something interesting. I had not known that Boethius, the author of the Consolation of Philosophy, is actually a canonized saint in the Catholic Church. He is “Saint Severinus” and he is commemorated on October 23. Saint Severinus derives from the full name of Boethius: Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius.
