"Summer" by Henrietta R. Rae

Harpa - Summer is my least favorite season. Here in Texas it's oppressively hot -just stepping outside makes me break into a full blown sweat - and because of that I want to stay constantly indoors in the vicinity of the nearest fan. But I've always thought the name Summer was pretty, ever since I was little and I met an older girl with the name. Unfortunately nowadays it reads more 90's than fresh - but that doesn't mean you're out of options.

I stumbled across an interesting one - Harpa - which was ranked #12 in Iceland in 2015. Harpa was the name given to the first summer month in the old Icelandic calendar, which divided the year into winter and summer, both of which have six months. Where the name Harpa comes from exactly is debated; some believe it's the name of a pre-Christian Goddess, though there's not much to confirm that theory. If you're interested in more summery names check out my previous post here.

Camellia + Thoreau + More - My sister recently bought the new game "Vampyr". We're big fans of anything vampire related and the premise is intriguing - you play as a newly created vampire who also happens to be a doctor in the Spanish flu epidemic that lasted from 1918 to 1920. There's tons of great names, too. Below are some of my favorites.

Pippa
Camellia
Emelyne
