The Children of Princess Helen of Serbia and Yugoslavia

Princess Helen of Serbia and Yugoslavia was born Princess Helena Karađorđević to Peter I of Serbia and Yugoslavia and Princess Zorka of Montenegro. She married Prince John Constantinovich of Russia, who was called "Ioanchik". It was a love match and shocked family members because they believed John might become a Russian Orthodox Monk.
Their children were: Vsevolod Ivanovich Romanov, "Prince Vsevolod Ivanovich"
Yekaterina Ivanovna Romanova, "Princess Catherine of Russia", later "Catherine, Marchesa Farace di Villaforesta"

On My Mind: 1-10-18


Happy New Year!

Timothée - The first time this name really caught my attention was on actor Timothée Chalamet, a breakout star of the coming of age film "Call Me by Your Name". It is simply the French form of Timothy, pronounced vaguely like TEE-MAW-TAE. Chalamet, who was raised primarily in Hell's Kitchen, is the son of a Jewish mother and French father, and has a sister who lives in Paris named Pauline. He is fluent in French, and spent summers in "a little village about two hours outside of Lyon".

Mauricio/Maurizio/Maurício - At work there was a large foreign family, and I overheard the youngest member being called one of these names. I originally thought they were Spanish, but their pronunciation makes me lean towards the second option listed above, which is Italian. The name was really beautiful to hear, and I've taken quite a shine to it since hearing it.

Caleb - I've always liked this classic, Biblical option, and 2018 is the year of the dog, making this name especially appropriate. It is thought to mean "dog", or alternately, "whole-hearted".
