PICK 001: No Pussyfooting, just flowing like a river. Meet Liva
The word Līva (in german: Lyva, Lyua, Libau) has its origins as a famous river in Kurzeme, part of today’s Latvia. It was located between the Baltic Sea and Liepāja Lake. It is also the name of a tiny Estonian village with a population of only 19 people, name of a band and an album, but also one of the first recorded names for latvians circa 1461 and also the name of this beautiful gal, born in the land of vikings: Riga; it is common knowledge that the place is named after a corrupted borrowing from the Liv ringa meaning loop, referring to the ancient natural harbour formed by the tributary loop of the Daugava River.
