• @beppe9000 They don't need to. This answer fulfills every condition of the question: It has 8 letters. It has 6 consonants, and all of those consonants are Roman numerals. Please note that "a" and "o" are not Roman numerals. Commented Nov 5, 2019 at 17:26

Melville (as in Moby Dick author) is close (5 consonants and 1 vowel that are roman numerals, 8 letter name)

Grace McCallum who is a well-known American gymnast

This is not, strictly, an answer, but …

Six?  You only want six?

If you ignore the middle initial, $$\text{Cecil}~\color{gray}{\text{B.}}~\text{DeMille}$$

has twelve letters, of which all seven consonants are Roman numerals.

Similarly (but more cheekily) close is:

A. LINCoLN

Note: N was used (at least once) as a roman numeral representing nulla, the Latin word for 0! ;)

• Last time I checked, N wasn't a Roman numeral...?! I only see 3 (standard) Roman numeral consonants here... (I'm guessing you're using N for 'Nulla', zero...) (Actually that's quite nice lateral thinking - removing my downvote...!)
