I see this on wiki :
"*Constantine* (pronounced
/ˈkɒnstəntaɪn/<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_English>or
/ˈkɒnstəntiːn/ <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_English>;
Latin <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_language>: *Cōnstantīnus*,
Greek<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_language>:
*Κωνσταντῖνος*, *Kōnstantînos*) is a masculine given
name<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Given_name>and
surname <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surname> which is derived from the
Latin name *Constantinus*[1]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine#cite_note-0>,
a hypocoristic <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypocoristic> of the first
names Constans <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constans> and
Constantius<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantius>,
both meaning "constant, steadfast" in Latin<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin>
.[2] <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine#cite_note-1> The names are
the Latin equivalents of the Greek name *Eustáthios*, meaning the same. The
name "Constantine" is still very common in
Greece<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece>and
Cyprus <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyprus>, the forms Κώστας
(Costas<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costas>)
and Ντίνος (Dinos) being popular
hypocoristics<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypocoristic>.
Costel <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costel> is a common
Romanian<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanian_language>form. The
Russian <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_language> and
Serbian<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serbian_language>form is
Konstantin, and their short forms Kostija and Kosta, respectively."

I think is more "both meaning "constant, steadfast" .
The correct question is :
"What is specific difference between old and new fedora?"
1. http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/ho/05/eust/ho_26.229.htm
" This Tetrarchy was founded on the idea of homogeneous authority; all four
emperors were depicted together in portraits emphasizing their unity and
indivisibility in order to bolster their strength and present the image of a
unified empire."
2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iconoclasm

I think the new fedora make simple distro with colors papyrus and fedora TM:
About papyrus style  :
"Papyrus is more reminiscent of Egypt"
Papyrus  with some latin words , see :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_phrases
papyrus is use to write knowledge ...
like this "A well-preserved papyrus scroll, written in Latin" :
