Rebecca Woolf, writer (Girl's Gone Child), has given birth to her third child and fourth child - girl, girl twins, Reverie Lux and Boheme Shalom. They join siblings Archer Sage and Fable Luella.
Congratulations Rebecca and family! The babes are absolutely beautiful and their names are so, so lovely.
Let's talk about those fine names, shall we?
Reverie - You'll hear no arguments from me on the virtues of this name; we chose the name as a middle for one of our daughters. I love the nickname Reve just as much. The meaning of this word/name (from dictionary.reference.com):
"a state of dreamy meditation or fanciful musing: lost inreverie." and "Music . an instrumental composition of a vague and dreamycharacter."
Lux - 'light'.
The full name together is so stunning. I agree with Rebecca and family, these themes of light and daydreams fit together like bees and honey! I notice that sisters Fable and Reverie both have L middle names, and their first names are both things that people have or create - stories, songs, dreams.
Boheme - A bohemian, a gypsy, a wanderer, a bold individual. Will she use nickname, Bo?
Shalom - 'peace', which is so perfect with Boheme - it has a real musicality, doesn't it?
Similarly, I love that Boheme and brother Archer both have S middle names, and their first names both describe something that people are/do. Additionally, the nickname Bo sounds like Bow, the tool used by the Archer! I can't help but wonder if this symmetry was intentional? I wouldn't be too surprised if every detail like this was thoughtfully considered here.
Again, Rebecca Woolf & family, congratulations on your beautiful new additions, and thank you for letting us talk about the meaningful names you chose!
