Bonnie means happy or pretty and Blythe means a carefree spirit

or light.

So you are happy and carefree if you are bonnie and blythe.

Fun Fact: Children born on Sunday are usually

called "Bonnie and Blyth in every way" I'm pretty sure there's cool

descriptions for all days people were born on, so this might be

interesting to you... ....or not...? Haha. Here, I found a website

that has this random poem for people who might think it's


Mondays child is fair of face,

Tuesdays child is full of grace,

Wednesdays child is full of woe,

Thursdays child has far to go,

Fridays child is loving and giving,

Saturdays child works hard for his living,

And the child that is born on the Sabbath day

Is bonny and blithe in every way.

It was the best one I could find... **DISCLAIMER** Of

course I dont live by this, these qualities can apply to

anyone regardless of the day they were born on. This is for

entertainment purposes only.
