No, they all sound plausible enough to be anecdotes about real people. I guessed correctly that 'natus' is the Latin for 'born'; it means that the man's real name was Julius Godalming, but he was predictably given the nickname 'Caesar'. I'm pretty sure it's from about a century ago, otherwise there would be some more recent stories.
