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.

Hello, Fall!

"Autumn Leaves" by John Everett Millais
Fall is probably my favorite season, followed closely by winter, which is really sad because I live in the south where we have fall for about a week before moving into the worst, wettest winter you could imagine. In honor of fall finally arriving, I'm going to do a post on names that remind me of fall and relate to it. *I wanted to thank my sister, Abby, for helping with this list!

  1. Autumn is my favourite season too, although I actually love all the seasons except the 3-6 weeks of summer which is unbearably hot.

    Lusine and Millaray are so pretty, and don't seem out of place at all.

    1. I quite like it! I think it might be better suited for a cat, though.
