Fede Alvarez touched on the significance of the name Romulus in the title for Alien: Romulus which I just featured in a recent news article:

The names Remus and Romulus actually stem from ancient Roman mythology - they were the mythological creators of Rome - the largest empire the world had ever seen. As the story goes, Remus and Romulus were twin boys who feed from a she-wolf type of creature to gain its powers. The story symbolizes harvesting resources from a dangerous beast to become more powerful - very much inline with the Prometheus title Ridley chose for his Alien prequel - having similar symbolism about stealing the power from the Gods to elevate Mankind to God-like status.

This coincides with the leaks we shared earlier this month - whereby we learned Weyland-Yutani are attempting to harvest and manipulate the DNA of the Xenomorph in order to gain its power and advance Humanity genetically.

I can NOT wait for this movie... It sounds more and more like the perfect blending of Alien and Prometheus concepts.

Blending Alien with Prometheus sounds awesome! This confirms it, the ALIEN tv series isn't connected to the main ALIENverse

I wouldn't say it isn't connected at all, but just not directly to Romulus. Which means we'll likely have no reference of the "Prodigy Corporation" in Romulus, but I'm sure there will be Weyland-Yutani references in the show.
