Belle and the Beast's Children



Back in August I started this blog series and then researched for this post and just stopped. I forgot about this series, that is, until I was brainstorming post ideas for the new year and flipping through my name notebook. For these posts I like to watch the movies before finalizing my list of name inspirations. It gives me a better idea of the plot and little ideas I may have missed before.

For today's post I have Belle and Beast from Beauty and the Beast. My name inspiration comes from both Belle and the Beast. I took Belle's love for books and her father, Maurice, and combined it with the infamous rose and Beast's household object friends. My naming suggestions wouldn't be complete without looking at the moral of the story: seeing the inner beauty of someone. 




Libby- My God is an Oath; English 
Libby may not be an obvious choice for a book lover but bare with me here. I chose the name because Libby could be short for Library! 

Astoria- Feminine Form of Aster (Hawk); English
Like Libby, Astoria is in honor of sweet Belle's love of reading. The nickname Story will be super cute here. 

Maura- Feminine Form of Maurus (Dark Skinned); Italian and Spanish or Anglicized of Marie (Sea of Bitterness); Irish 
Belle meets the Beast because of her father, the only living relative that we know of. Her love for her father is so strong so its only fitting that I feature names to honor him. Maura is a nice fix in my eyes!

Lavender- Pale Purple Color, Aromatic Flower; English 
Lavender seems like a sweet Disney name. I filled the name from Mrs. Pott and Chip, the teapot and teacup from Beast's life. There are many flavors of tea out there and Lavender is one of them. 

Rosabel- Combination of Rosa (Rose) and Belle (Beautiful); English
A single rose plays a an important role in the Beast's life so I had to add Rose names to the list. I choice Rosabel to be my main rose name because of the combination of Rose and Belle. To see more Rose name suggestions look below!

Cara- Beloved; Italian 
The moral of the plot of the story is to look at people's inner beauty. I choose because it reminds me of caring. Plus the meaning is pretty nice too. 

Joy- Joy; English
Just like Cara, Joy is inspired by a person's inner beauty. 





Reed- Reed Clearing; English
Reed or Read is a nice honorary name for a book lover. 

Morris- Form of Maurice (Dark Skinned); English 
I pulled Morris from Belle's father Maurice. Morris would fit in Belle's little town. 

Grey- Gray; English 
Earl Grey tea is a tea familiar with many people. I can see Grey being a nice middle name to honor Mrs. Pott and Chip. 

Boston- Place Name; English 
Boston is on the list because the city is associated with tea. 

Royce- Variant of Rose; English 
To my surprise I was able to find a boy name associated with roses! I just had to add Royce to to list. 

Brave- Courageous, Strong, English 
When looking at someone's inner personality you look for the very best traits. I think being brave is something to be proud of. Brave or Bravery work here, especially as a middle name. 

Noble- Notable, Noble; English 
When you look up the definition of noble it says "possessing outstanding qualities" If that doesn't cover all qualities I don't know what does! Plus I think Noble is great for a little prince.

Kardashian West Baby #3

The newest Kardashian baby is here! I repeat the newest Kardashian baby is here! Normally I don't get super excited about celebrity baby news and I didn't for the last two Kardashian-West babies but this time is different. Something about the naming theme they already have, North and Saint, has me on edge for this new baby girl. Will they choose a one syllable, word name again? Or will they throw us off and go with something we would never expect? 

I've been working on my most anticipated celebrity names of 2018 but haven't finished it yet. I know I know it's already more than two weeks into the year but it's been slow coming. In this two part special I am listing the expecting celebrities I can't wait to hear names from AND giving suggestions/predictions. 

It's no surprise that Kim and Kayne's third baby is on there. She's definitely at the top of all the namers 2018 wait list. Since my post most likely won't be out before her name is released I'm dedicating a who post just to her! This post is being written as I sit in the lobby of my city's school district waiting for my younger sister to take a standardized test on my iPhone 🙈



North and Saint are both one syllable word names and they both contain the letter T in a prominent way. At first that is the route I was going in my suggestions but realized there aren't a whole lot of names out there in that category. Below are suggestions all across the board. 

Story, True, Aspen, Grey, Rue, Wild/Wilde, Arbor, Winter, Night, and Lux


Lux is a name I have been seeing suggested for this baby many, many times. I can get on board with Lux for sure! Maybe that will be this baby's name. North's name started as a rumor and then Kimye fell in love with it and used it.

Manon

Happy Christmas Eve! Today is the last day of Namemas, sadly, and I can't believe it is over already! If you guys don't hear from me tomorrow I hope you have a great holiday.



French, French, French 
Manon is the French variant of Marie, which is in the same family as Mary. True to her origin, Manon ranked #5 in France in 2015 as well as #26 in Belgium.

The French film Manon of the Spring from the 1980s is about a young girl who works as a shepherd in the countryside of France. She goes on to plot revenge on men who were greedy over her father's land a few years back and caused his death. I have not seen the movie but it does seem very interesting.

Before the film there was a novel called Manon Lescaut written by Abbe Prevost in 1731. It takes place in France and Louisiana and get this one of the main characters is called Manon! Manon's lover disappoints his father and runs away with her. The novel would go on to infuse many other movies and TV shows and even a few Operas.

Christmas Association 
Manon is the last name of Namemas sadly but I can't go without saying why I pricked this lovely name. Manon is in honor of the mother of Jesus, Mary. If you are a fan of catholic and religious names you have to check out Kate at Sancta Nomina. I have seen Manon featured over there a few times.
