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 Marie José of Belgium

Princess Marie José of Belgium
Princess Marie José of Belgium was born Marie José Charlotte Sophie Amélie Henriette Gabrielle to Albert I of Belgium and Elisabeth of Bavaria. She married Umberto II of Italy, who was born Umberto Nicola Tommaso Giovanni Maria di Savoia, and they were nicknamed "The May Queen and King" because their reign was only 35 days long.
Their children were:

Maria Pia Elena Elisabetta Margherita Milena Mafalda Ludovica Tecla Gennara di Savoia, "Prince Maria Pia of Savoy", "Princess Maria Pia of Bourbon-Parma", "Maria Pia di Savoia"

Vittorio Emanuele Alberto Carlo Teodoro Umberto Bonifacio Amedeo Damiano Bernardino Gennaro Maria di Savoia, "Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples", "Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia"
