Meaning Behind the Name

May 23, 2017

So how many of you out there wonder why we decided to spell cactus all funky? No we didn’t TRY to make it difficult, like that person that purposely spells their child’s simple name all different. The spelling actually means something to us. *shocking, I know*

Kaktos
So Katie and I are Greek...do you see where I’m going with this? Κάκτος is Greek for cactus. Yes, our Dad owned a restaurant, yes we both worked there, no Windex is not a thing...ok now that we have that all cleared up.

Rose
Katie’s middle name is Rose after our Great-Grandma Rose. So, there you have it! Simple but sweet, and it holds a special place in our hearts!

There are two kinds of people - Greeks, and everyone else who wishes they were Greek.

XX,

Bossbabe Ashley
