On My Mind: 12-5-18

Lots of Name Sightings - I've heard so many great names lately at work. Annabelle Ruth, siblings named Viola, Coco, Savannah, and Reed, and a little boy named Thor.

Lorelei - A friend of mine became an Uncle a while back and I just finally got to meet her. Her name is Lorelei, which I think is gorgeous. Lorelei is German and means "luring rock". In German folklore a Lorelei was a sort of mermaid or siren who would lure fishermen to their deaths. Lorelei is also the name of a rock headland on the Rhine River.

Edna - I've been watching "SS-GB" which is set in an alternate history Great Britain where the Germans won WWII. One of the main characters is played by German actor Lars Eidinger, who in real life has a daughter named Edna. I just thought it was so refreshing to see. Edna in Hebrew means "pleasure", and it is also an anglicized version of Irish Eithne, which means "kernel" or "grain".

Rosamund Pike Reveals Name of Baby

Robie and Rosamund
With already one child with her boyfriend Robie Uniacke, a boy named Solo, I was highly anticipating the name she would choose for her next. Well, she's finally revealed that his name is Atom. (I kind of like them!)

  1. I actually think that Atom could work because of its similarity in sound to Adam? I think that makes it more "usable," if that makes sense. I do think there might be difficulty with people hearing it as Adam and spelling it that way, though. Anyways, I do like it, and I like Solo as well.
