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 Children of Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicile, duchesse de Barry

Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicile, duchesse de Barry

Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicile, duchesse de Barry was born Maria Carolina Ferdinanda Luise to Francis I of the Two Sicilies and Archduchess Maria Clementina of Austria. She first married Charles Ferdinand, Duke of Berry who was born Charles Ferdinand d'Artois, duc de Berry.
Their children were:

Louise Élisabeth, "Princess Louise Élisabeth", died in infancy

Louis, "Prince Louis", died in infancy

Louise Marie Thérèse d'Artois, later "Princess Louise Marie Thérèse, Duchess of Parma"

Henri Charles Ferdinand Marie Dieudonné d'Artois, "Prince Henri, duc de Bourdeaux" and later "Henri, comte de Chambord"; he was regarded as a "miracle child", because his father was assassinated seven months before his birth, and it was feared that the senior line of the House of Bourbon would soon cease to exist. This was why he was given one of his names - Dieudonné, which means "God-given".

She then married Ettore Carlo Lucchesi-Palli, 8th Duke della Grazia:

Anna Maria Rosalia Lucchesi-Palli; born during her mother's imprisonment because of her politics and the belief that her son was the legitimate heir to the throne. She had secretly married Ettore, and their baby was put into foster care with a couple until she died aged just three months.

Clementina Lucchesi-Palli, later "Countess of Zileri dal Verme"

Francesca di Paola Lucchesi-Palli, later "Princess di Arsoli"

Maria Isabella Lucchesi-Palli, later "Marchesa Cavriani", and then "Contessa di Conti"
