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.

The Skarsgårds

Stellan and Alexander

Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård (Did you know Paul Bettany's son is named after him?) is father to an astonishing eight children, some with quite unusual names. Many are now actors in their own right. I wasn't able to find the last few middle names.

From oldest to youngest:

Alexander Johan Hjalmar
Gustaf Caspar Orm
Samuel "Sam" Kristoffer Ymer
Bill Istvan Günther

Ossian and Kolbjörn are with his new wife, Megan Everett, the others are with My.
