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.

Surnames for Girls

Mia Farrow
I know, I know, surnames for girls is kind of taboo in the naming world. I do understand some of the hate, but I also think there are some exceptions. I also love it when the maiden name is used, either as a first or middle. If my own surname sounded nice enough for a name, I would use it in a heartbeat; unfortunately it doesn't. But here are some that I think wear especially nice on little girls.

  1. I actually love this trend (when it's done well). There are some superb options here, and I think a lot of them work really well for boys and girls. I love the unisex feel. You featured a lot that I really love!
