Official note

I will not be posting here or anywhere for a good while. What I’ve been using to post has been broken and I’m borrowing one to post this.
I will be back sometime in the future. Look for me at Appellation Mountian, Nameberry or here. Lola’s the name, don’t forget it!

August revisited

August is in the works again. I love the nod to my Mom, born in August 1940. If August Francis didn’t trip me up, he’d be *the* combo. Sadly, it does. So, I went digging and the three following have approval, but I can’t decide! Can you help?
They are:

August Lucien Reuel – I really like him, but nothing falls below the line. Visually, that bothers me. How much? Enough that I kept fiddling! Lucien, he loves & we’re both huge Tolkien fans, hence the lesser used Reuel at the end. Look up Reuel’s meaning too, it’s fabulous!

August James Tiberius – Yes, Yes, I KNOW, but it pleases him to no end and I love James Tiberius by itself, but don’t want to hear “Star Trek Fans much?” all the time. So I kept looking. James honors my lovely Uncle and “James Tiberius” is awesome on it’s own.

August Galen Aloysius – Now, *this* one, I love. Utterly. AG, Augie & Gus are all lovely nickname possibilities. He doesn’t mind Galen in the middle (we both say GALE-en), and Aloysius honors.

August isn’t our front runner, but he could go as high as #3, in the end (and we take top 5 with us). So there you go! Which one would *you* pick and why, if you please!

Thanks a million, as always.

Loving Penelope!

I’ve been absolutely loving Penelope lately. I adore her galloping sound, and her elegant look. Poppy is my preferred nickname, although Nell & Polly are two other possibilities. Penny does not appeal at all, which is funny as it’s the most intuitive of the bunch.
I even have two combos I adore:
Penelope Oona Violet &
Penelope Luna Violet
Yes, I know they sound alike, Oona & Luna. I love the “oo” sound!

I’m going to ask you all to pick one & tell me why you did. I’d love to know! Because I can’t decide. Today I like Oona better. Tomorrow I’ll probably prefer Luna. 😀 Any help at all will be happily received! Thanks!
