Personal experiences with the name Gus:
Our son’s name is actually August, but we call him Gus. Everywhere I go-people stop me and say,”Did you just say Gus? OMG!!!! That is sooooo cute!!!!” We get it all the time. We know several little guys (5 and under) with the name. It must be another of those ‘old’ names that are making a comeback….

What wonderful sibset

Our 3 girls are named Della Marigold, Ottoline Rebecca Primrose (exclusively “Ottilie”) and Cosima Daisy. We will continue the floral theme for a girl middle name, boy middle name will be William Jack. Some of them have little comments.

Ginevra Willow (I’m afraid that using Ginevra will be floral overkill though. The meaning is “juniper”)
Ina (Irina) either Ina Clover or Irina Violet. We’d use Ina as a nickname for Irina but I’m not sure if I want a full name or not.
Matilda Clover
Clotilda Violet (I’m not sure if Clotilda is usable. I’ve always really liked it, and I don’t think it’s so different from Chloe and Matilda)
Cordia (Cordelia) either Cordia Willow or Cordelia Amaryllis. Again, it would be like Ina
Cecilia Bluebell
Junia Willow
Francesca Juniper (do you think Francesca is usable on a 1/4 Chinese, 3/4 WASP kid? To give you an idea of what our other kids look like, I have put up a picture of Ottilie on my profile. We get “gosselin” comments a lot)
Arianne Poppy
Estella Violet
Augustine/Augusta Augustine Lily or Augusta Ivy

Killian William Jack
Arlo William Jack
Benton William Jack
Prosper William Jack
Augustus William  Jack
Marius William Jack
Ezra William Jack
Atticus William Jack
Cael William Jack
Oren William Jack

As you can see by the signature they are going with Irina Starling.

Angela and Jack

Della Marigold 2/06-10/08, Ottoline Rebecca Primrose “Ottilie” 4/07, Cosima Daisy 8/08, & Irina Starling 9/09
