No Pope has taken the name Peter since that fisherman guy 2000 years ago. No Italians are anywhere on the leading list of candidates being rated by the bookies.

Hence “Peter of Rome” is a very, very long shot IMO.

Yes, but, Ratzinger chose the name Benedict. The Benedictines or the Olivetans as they are also known brings him in line with the prophecy. He knowingly assumed a name that comported with the second to last Pope of the prophecy. I find that interesting. We will know soon enough if it is an actual Peter, a roman or someone who just happens to pick a name that lines up. Interesting times to be sure.

“No Pope has taken the name Peter EVER.”

Fixed it for you. :)
