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.

La Belle et La Bête

Jean Marais and Josette Day as the original "La Belle et La Bête"

Coming out on Valentine's Day (at least in France) is a remake of Jean Cocteau's classic "La Belle et La Bête", made in 1946. In this version, the beauty if simply referred to as "Belle", which I find to a disappointment. There is so much naming potential there. Her sisters are called Adélaïde and Félicie, both lovely French names. What would you name the beauty? Something rosy perhaps? Or just extravagantly French?

My choice is Rosemonde, which is both rosy and French.
