> In C++, can I call the constructor for a class by any other name?

No.  Why would you want to?  You almost never refer to it by name
anyway, but only by inference when you instantiate an object of that
class:

	foo x;

	foo *x = new foo();

Since you can overload the constructor, you don't need different names
just to pass different arguments either.
