    Augusta has arrived!

    Our fourth child, a baby girl arrived on 21 February 19. She is named Augusta Ursula Geraldine (and has a long, formal, four word German surname). August is a family name in both paternal streams. It has significant family history and as we did for both of her sisters, we used the female version instead of the male. Ursula and Geraldine are her grandmothers. We have only used family names for all 12 given names we have used for our children and we wanted to honour directly the grandmothers in this (most likely!) last baby. Siblings, Benedikte, Rupert, and Theodosia are delighted with their new baby sister.

    Congratulations! Augusta is a lovely, regal name, and a fantastic match to her siblings names.
    Sorry for my English. They aren't my first language, and I try my best.
