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 Grandchildren of Queen Victoria: Part One

Victoria, Princess Royal

After writing about the names of Queen Victoria's children, I thought it would be interesting to write about the names of her grandchildren, too. Since she has so many (only one of her daughters, Princess Louise, had no children), I'm splitting it up into parts. Enjoy!

Victoria, Princess Royal, married Friedrich Wilhelm Nickolaus Karl, or Frederick III, a German Emperor and Prussian King. Their children were:

Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert, later "Wilhelm II"

Viktoria Elisabeth Auguste Charlotte, "Princess Charlotte"

Albert Wilhelm Heinrich, "Prince Henry"

Franz Friedrich Sigismund, "Prince Sigismund" (He was the first of Queen Victoria's children to die, at only twenty-one months)

Friederike Amalia Wilhelmine Viktoria, "Princess Viktoria", "Moretta", or "Young Vicky"

Joachim Friedrich Ernest Waldemar, "Prince Waldemar" (He died at age eleven)

Sophie Dorothea Ulrike Alice, "Princess Sophie", or "Sossy"

Margarete Beatrice Feodora, "Princess Margaret", or "Mossy"
