This weeks names are:
Milo & Clementine
Milo a sweet little name with Old German roots meaning “merciful”. Milo has a gentle sound that is softened by the “o” ending. A favorite of celebrities, there are several celebrity babies by the name of Milo. If you like Milo you might also like Arlo or Miles. When I picture a Milo I usually think of a young Huckleberry Finn type – freckles, shaggy hair, and a big moon face. There is the cat and pup duo of Milo and Otis as well as the dashing actor Milo Ventimiglia, pictured to the right.
Clementine .. oh my darling! A French form of Clement meaning “merciful, gentle”. Both names this week having meanings that mean merciful. In addition to being part of a song, Clementine has a sweet, country vibe. I picture it on a spunky farm-girl wearing overalls and ribbons in her hair. A different picture than that of the character Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind played by Kate Winslet, picture to the right.
