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.

Vale


Origin: English
Gender: Unisex
Meaning: Poetic term for a valley
Pronunciation: VAYL
Other forms: N/A

Savannah Guthrie of "The Today Show" just had a little girl she named Vale Guthrie Feldman. I've liked the name Vale for a really long time, though I actually prefer it for a boy. A vale is a poetic word for a valley, which comes from the Old French val, which was derived from the Latin vallis or vallem which meant "valley". I'm sure a few of you have even heard of the "vale of years" from "Othello", and the "vale of tears" saying. I think Vale is a really lovely and obscure nature name, that doesn't seem overly hippie.

  1. I wonder if Savannah Guthrie chose her daughter's name as a nod to her own.
