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.

Names Taken from Ingmar Bergman (Part One)

Ingmar Bergman is perceived as one of the greatest and most influential directors of all time. His films were dark, dealing with things people were afraid to talk about; death, insanity, betrayal, and women's sexuality, just to name a few. Among his many awards are three Academy Awards, and a nomination for a Palm d'Or. He directed over sixty productions, his last movie was made when he was eighty-four.
Today's film is "Fanny and Alexander" or "Fanny och Alexander".
