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.

That Which We Call a Rose

"Rose Valley" by Elenore Abbott
Rose is one of the simplest, and loveliest, names out there. Timeless and sweet, it could fit any girl and any woman. But roses have many other names, too. These names are taken from different breeds of roses, which yielded some surprising finds.
