|"Miriam" by Anselm Feuerbach|
My Name, 2017 Style - Time Magazine has this great little gadget where if you enter your name and birth year, it will tell you what your name would have been in 2017 going on what your name was ranked the year you were born. My name, Bree, was ranked 713th in the year I was born, making my new name Dalia. In 2016 I would have been Akira, in the 1920's I would have been called Rosebud, and in the 1900's I would have been the zippy Zara. What would you have been?
Salem - I've gotten a new cat - a kitten from a litter at my grandmother's house, which is currently being taken over by all sorts of felines. We've called him (we think it's a him!) Salem. Salem has been a guilty pleasure of mine for years, for either gender.
Miriam - At work I recently heard a little girl being called Miriam, which has really opened my eyes to the beauty of this name! Miriam was the original form of Mary and in the Bible is the older sister of Moses and Aaron.
