Latin Names Part III

I have finished my studies of Latin some months ago, but I forgot to post the last part of my Latin Names series. The first and the second part dealt with male and female name. The post today is all about ancient place names. Some of them are not as usable as others. My favourite is Aventin, which is one of the seven hill Rome was built on. Aventin is very similar to  Valentin and it also has the consonant V in it, which is quite fashionable nowadays. Adding an “E”, it  becomes a girl name. In my sims game I have a father called Aventin and a daughter Aventine named after him.

2012 was quite an interesting year for me as many family members and friends became parents. All of these children ,except of Alex Kevin and Florian, have at least one Bosnian parent. I am looking forward to the next years as a majority of them are first-time parents and will likely have some more children in the near future. And maybe you are wondering why almost no one has a middle name. The reason is that it is very uncommon to give children more than one name in Bosnia; although, I think it is a waste of  a good naming opportunity. Also added here are some names of children born in 2011 as I never mentioned them in my blog before.
