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".

Minute Maid Park on Friday
Avisail - I went to my first ever sports game this past Friday and absolutely loved it. One of the men on the other team, The White Sox, had the name Avisail, which I thought was really interesting. He's originally from Venezuela, but I can't find much on the name outside of him.

Dutch Names - These Dutch birth announcements were so amazing, I loved almost every single one. My favorites were twins Alexander Bonifas Maurits and Valentijn Hendrik Jaap, Fleurance Maryse Juliette, Josephine Duveken Elizabeth, and Victoria Vesper. I thought it was interesting that the Dutch are also into animal names: a little boy was named Vos - Dutch for "fox".

Interesting Sibset - The whole ball game was apart of one of our church's functions, and three little girls from our church sat behind us with my cousin. I finally got the opportunity to hear all their names - Waylon, Gigi, and Sylvie.
