His name August is a family name in Peter’s family and from over 200 years, and Miklos is Meriska’s father’s first name, which means they have kept the naming tradition alive so far.
She is a massive supporter of breastfeeding and so far is pretty successful in giving all the babies equal attention, love, and care as a mother of three. Similarly, August Miklos is reportedly an overprotective brother especially towards his sister Amaya Josephine.
