If you'd ever read the Asterix comics as a kid, you'd have guessed the period/region in history that the name comes from. But as Caustic Man says, Orgetorix was a Helvetian noble who inadvertantly sparked off the Gallic wars and gave Caesar a reason to invade Gaul. I strongly recommend the comics, by the way, even for an adult. The jokes are great, and the English translation does more than simply translate; it's a great adaptation, though perhaps moreso for British than American readers. I don't recall Orgetorix being featured, but another king, Vercingetorix, does cameo, when he throws down his arms at Caesar's feet. Unlike the more stately interpretation of this act depicted in the famous painting of the same name, in the comics Vercingetorix literally throws them at Caesar's feet...
Anyway, congratulations Orgetorix!
