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.

Hello, Summer!

"Summer Clouds" by Charles Courtney Curran
Much to my shock I forgot to even post my summer names! Summer is my least favorite season. I like it in theory and always dream it's gonna involve me sipping juice on the porch in some cute shorts and sunglasses, spending days lounging in the pool, and reading in the sun. Unfortunately it is never like that, and I've come to realize I'm never going to have a "movie" summer. In Texas summer is dry as a bone, without even a breath of air, opposed to winter where everything is wet. You burn yourself on the car and then on the seat belt, and then you melt all your makeup off trying to wait for the air conditioning to cool down. It's just no fun. But, that does not mean I will neglect my duty to post some summer names.
