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.

Indigo



Origin: English
Gender: Unisex
Meaning: From the word for the color
Pronunciation: IN-dih-go
Other forms: N/A

I've been seeing this name crop up quite a bit, usually for girls, though it is undoubtedly unisex.
Indigo comes from the Greek indikon, meaning "from India". Indigo is a bright color that falls between blue and purple, though it comes in many shades. Isaac Newton was the one who named Indigo, and the indigo plant, which the dye is made out of, exists in tropical lands.

In Hinduism, indigo represents the sixth chakra, which is the brow or third eye chakra, and is called Ajna. It governs over the brain, eyes, ears, nose, pituitary gland, pineal glands, and the neurological system. Essential oils for Ajna are mint and jasmine.
