On My Mind: 7-16-17

Gus, Theo, and Ruby - At work I recently heard of a sibset consisting of eldest brother Gus, and then Theo, and a little sister named Ruby. It's so unusual (especially in my small southern town) to hear such stylish names that I was pretty floored when I heard it.

Augustine - Another name sighting from work - a little boy was calling for his friend all across the arcade - his name was Augustine.

Libuše - I've really been into Czech names here lately, and this one is one of my favorites. It comes from the Czech lib - which means "love". In legend, Libuše, also sometimes calledLubuše, Libussa, or Lubossa, was the name of a Princess and the founder of Prague.

Names for That Family Who Live in the Old Decrepit Castle

And may, or may not, be vampires, who may, or may not, have a mermaid in the lake behind their house, who may, or may not, have a ghost for each room. You know the family. They all dress in vintage clothing, they play with Victorian dolls, and have pet ravens named Faust and Hyde and serve you chocolates which might have a dose or two of cyanide, for fun, of course. Here is a new segment in which I will be naming different families from my imagination. I would assume this family would use very elaborate, Gothic, or fusty names.

  1. Oooh, these are spooky and delicious. I'm glad to see Lucasta and Jocasta. It seems they never receive recognition.

  2. I loved reading this!! So many good ones. Wilhelmina I love and Hesper makes me think of vapor which is very spooky ghostly. And the gents sound creepily dashing.

  3. These are stunning! I love that type of family, especially the sisters in Jackson's We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I'm curious Bree, what names would you suggest to someone interested in this type of eccentric aristocrat name style...but would prefer names that aren't as over the top?

    2. Thanks so much!! These are wonderful, especially Felicity, Tamsin, Opal, Zelda and Dahlia; Quincy, Percival, Desmond, Linus and Rufus. (It's so much easier for me to fin boy names I love, but these names are about equally gorgeous!)
