Ivo. Well, my iPad recognizes Ivo as a proper noun. Given the rain we expect Ivo to bring this weekend, I thought the name could be derived from some archaic rain god. Nope.

Meaning & History
Germanic name, originally a short form of names beginning with the Germanic element iv meaning "yew".
Alternative theories suggest that it may in fact be derived from a cognate Celtic element. 
This was the name of several saints (who are also commonly known as Saint Yves or Ives).

Anyway, the air is wet today. Moisture is already surging northward. The Valley of the Sun had heavy rains and lightning over night. It will be wetter tomorrow. It still looks like Tropical Storm Ivo will end our August drought.
