Hey Ottilie! I can't keep track of so many other lovely names that have shown up in your other threads, so I'll start afresh with what's here, plus some. Fieldrush, by the way, is to die for.
Belphoebe Grifola Lune (Grifola as in the noble hen o' woods mushroom)
Belphoebe Windemere Wilde
Belphoebe Ozma Lune (as in the rightful princess of Oz)
Belphoebe Nicotiana Elin (Nicotiana is the tobacco plant, but she's a night-bloomer and incredibly fragrant. Elin - Elaine.)
Belphoebe Astraea Winterose
Ceridwen Tindra Gale
Ceridwen Atalanta Photine
Ceridwin Atalanta Keshet (Keshet- Hebrew "rainbow") But then her initials would be CAKE, right? Oh well, everyone likes cake.
Ceridwin Heidi Eirlys
Hespera Ilta Signe (Ilta is Finnish for evening)
Hespera Amethyst Bellatrix
Hespera Twyla Vivendel
Hespera Zephyr Evelake
Illyria Fawn Blanchefleur
Illyria Vivendel Fawn
Illyria Caoimhe Meadowsweet (Caoimhe is pronounced "kweevah." It's Irish, means gentle and kind.)
Tinuviel Signe Sambac (as in jasmine sambac, the most deliciously fragrant)
Tinuviel Somerset Wilde
Tinuviel Mimosa June
Tinuviel Turtledove Martin (Martin as in the swallow)
dantea: Yay, I got one right! I love Soteria so much, it's the cutest name!
emma: Isn't Fieldrush amazing? I'm in love with it. I LOVE Ceridwen Atalanta Keshet, yeah initials will be CAKE but I love cake... i also love hespera Twyla Vivendel and Tinuviel Mimosa June.
Belphoebe Lorien Moonflower, Belphoebe Gable Evelake, Belphoebe Pandora June, Belphoebe Concordia Nyx, Belphoebe Lorca Moonlight, Belphoebe Atalanta Io, Belphoebe Thalia Valo, Belphoebe Isola Roseleaf (Isola means island in Italian which isn't particularly remarkable, but a beautiful word nonetheless. Depending on your interpretation of island though, this could still promise some wonderful aquatic imagery)
Illyria Lakshmi Roseling, Illyria Lune Madelief (Madelief is a Dutch name derived from the word for daisy, Madeliefje), Illyria Helmi Colombe, Illyria Mimosa Pomeline, Illyria Saskia Callisto, Illyria Freija Rainbow, Illyria Endellion Lintu
Hespera Swan Corisande, Hespera Petal Leontine, Hespera Artemis Dove,
Tinuviel Maris Waterlily, Tinuviel Poésie Niniane, Tinuviel Ariadne Mars
Ceridwen Vespertine Iris, Ceridwen Talvi Rosefinch, Ceridwen Reverie Wilde, Ceridwen Willoughby Frost, Ceridwen Wisteria Anaïs,
minisia: thank you! i really like Belphoebe Lorien Moonflower, Illyria Mimosa Pomeline and Ceridwen Reverie Wilde!
I've got quite a few lovely ones now, but if anyone wants to play a little more, I'd love to see these ones in a combo somewhere:
Venevil, Ylajali, Soteria, Endellion, Everild, Silmariën.
So happy to see Endellion and Everild back in consideration, and I'm glad you liked Fieldrush. :) Silmarien is beautiful though of course can't be used with Tinuviel.
I did want to say that Soteria, while beautiful, is a very strongly religious name in Greece (as is its male version, Soterios). In Greek the root soteri- means "sin, salvation;" soteriology is the branch of Christian theology that deals with the concept of sin as well as a subsection of Christology. One of the epithets of Christ in Greek is Soter, "Saviour."
I don't know Venevil (but the last two syllables are evil, if that's a problem), nor do I know Ylajali-- where is it from?
I want to add about Soteria. While Blade is correct, if you go with mythology, Soteria is the female personification of safety, preservation and deliverance from harm.
It's always good to get both meanings and associations with a name ^_^
Venevil is a poem by Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. It's a very lovely poem, but if you're getting it from somewhere else feel free to chime in Ottilie. ^_^
Ylajali is a character in a very interesting novel by Knut Hamson called Hunger. Again, if you're getting them from elsewhere tell me I'm wrong, but if you are at least you'll have more references from me :P
That is correct! Venevil is pronounced Vehn-eh-viil.

Illyria Earendil Terpsichore, Illyria Amoret Terpsichore, Illyria Silmarien Amoret

I've just found this thread - I love your names!!
I am Team Belphoebe all the way, I just adore it - My favourite combo atm is Belphoebe Winterose Snow or if thats TOO much winter, then perhaps Belphoebe Ondine Winterose - I LOVE Ondine, I adore it!!!
I also love Illyria Maris Evenstar and Ceridwen Evelake Nephele.
Beautiful, beautiful options!
Thanks Hayley! Belphoebe Winterose Snow is lovely! Too much winter? I don't think so... Ondine is gorgeous. Tinuviel Ori Ondine is one of my favourite combos.
