<<With a name ending in an e, how would one make that plural in Latin?>>
 
Nouns belonging to the third group of the third declination usually have nominatives ending in -e; their plural nominative ends in -ia (e.g. "mare"[singular nominative]----> "maria"[ with axcent on the first "a" i'd say)
 
It may be a singular  ablative of  a third declination name.The plural nominative would thus end in -es(if masculine or feminine[right?], while if neuter should end in -a)
 
May  belong to the fifth declination as well : singular ablative usually ends in -e too and plural nominative ends in -es.
