Name Magpie: End of Summer

This post is a little late in the month, isn't it? But it's better late than never, right? Here's some new names that have been on my mind lately:

Primarosa. I've been searching for new names on pinterest, and this one came up. You don't need to speak Spanish well in order to figure out that this means "first rose." This name is also a form of Primrose.

Corabella. Another pinterest find. I think this smoosh-name could catch on. The Bellas are hot right now and Coraline is rising up the charts.

Aegyptus. Yet another pinterest find. Aegyptus is a king from Greek-conquered-Egyptian mythology.

Loxo. Roses and Cellar Doors had a post on Triple Goddesses, and a lot of these are new to me. This is the name of one of Artemis' archery attendants. Her name means "angling."

Thallo. Thallo is one of the Horae, Greek goddesses of the seasons. Her name means "blossom."

Romola. This name was invented by George Elliot for her novel set in Florence. It seems very obviously inspired by Romulus.
