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 John Singer Sargent

"Mrs. Fiske Warren (Gretchen Osgood) and Her Daughter Rachel" by John Singer Sargent
John Singer Sargent was a leading painter of portraits during his time, and painted the famous "Madame X", showing the pale, red haired Virginie Amélie Avegno Gautreau in a black dress, the strap having fallen down her shoulders. It caused a great scandal, leaving the model humiliated as well as Sargent, though it may have helped further his career in America and Britain. He lived from 1856 to 1925.
