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 Children of Myles Standish

Myles Standish

Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of the occasion I am profiling the names of Myles Standish's children.

He first married Rose Handley, who died during the first winter in Plymouth. He then married Barbara, whom some believe to be the sister of Rose, though there is no proof. Their children were:

Charles (Born 1624, died somewhere between 1627-1635)

Alexander (He married Sarah Alden, and had eight children by her, and then Desire Doty)

John

Myles (Married Sarah Winslow)

Loara or Lora (Never married)

Josiah (Married Mary Dingley, and then Sarah Allen, with whom he had eight children)

Charles
