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".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Announce the Name!

I've been waiting and waiting to see what the Duke and Duchess would be naming their little girl, and it has finally been announced: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
A perfect name for a little princess. I was quite surprised at the choice of Diana - I didn't think they would be able to slip that one past! But I'm happy they did.
Their first baby is HRH Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
