Amabel Cerwiden Lavinia
Fiammetta Victorine Amaranta
Zenobia Josephine ________
Obviously I love Cassandra and Anastasia on your list:)
My brain isn't working today. I'll think of some more. Your name lists are how I procrastinate correcting papers. :)
EDIT: ok. Corrected a stack so im rewarding myself
Ianira Yvaine Calliope
Helena Phoebe Amaryllis (bright radiant sparkle according to NB... How fun is that?)
Hespera Yvaine Celestina
Cassandra Melisande (can't think of a third at the moment but I love the way this flows together)
Cassandra Apolline Viola
Cressida Amoret Lucia
Isadora Ceridwen Ophelia
Melisande Lavinia Isolde
Seraphina Alba Josephine
Zenobia Atalanta Constance
Also just to clarify, the names I ranked previously were based purely on how I felt about them for first name choices, but I love some of them in the middle. I think Cassandra is a really great match with Rosalind as well. As middle names go I especially love Apolline in the first spot to mirror the double L’s in Illyria, but I wanted to only give you one choice for each name so I didn't get carried away. Such fun! =]
Also, this looked like an appropriate link for you: http://nameberry.com/list/236/Literary-Names-for-Girls
Leona, I do like Laetitia, but I'd spell it Letizia (fond of Italian names!).
DindleDina, Amabel Ceridwen Lavinia is stunning!!!!
AmyDear, Cressida Amoret Lucia, Cassandra Apolline Viola and Melisande Lavinia Isolde are gorgeous! Serafina Alba Josephine though.... swoon!!!
I still adore Fiammetta, & think it would be beautiful with Rosalind, especially in a combo like Fiametta Juno Constance. Serafina, Lucrezia (I'm obsessed with the Borgias), Gwendolen, Filomena or Lavinia would be gorgeous as well; just the right amount of romance (which names like Natasha & Roxana lack, for me).
I really like Atalanta. Melisande is also nice, but I'd put it somewhere in the middle.
One, I'd like to say I adore all your names and reading about your different ideas!
Rosalind is gorgeous, but it's very different from some of your original names, like Fiammetta. I don't think that they work all that well together, stylistically. I think that Rosalind Illyria Beatrice and _____ Fiammetta _____ would be good though, so I'll leave that as a first middle name. I also really like Matilda, could that still work as a middle? _____ ______ Matilda.
Rosalind is uncommon, but not unheard of, and I think that's a good thing in a name. Others sort of like that with the same whimsical flair:
Calista/Calixta- A little more fantastic, but very nice
Persephone- It reminds me of Penelope, but a bit more fantastic, sort of like the relationship between Rosalie and Rosalind in my mind
Tabitha- It reminds me of Matilda, which I would love for you but I remember you can't use it
Leontine- This seems perfect with Rosalind, and I love the nickname of Leonie!
Lucinda- Lucinda is one of my favorite names, I love the nicknames, and it seems very perfect with Rosalind, if not a bit similar
Hermione- Very Potteresque, but I still really like it. Did you consider it once? I feel like you might have.
Anneliese- I feel like suggesting this, but I'm not really sure about it
Delphine- It has a sort of flowing, mystical quality similar to Rosalind's
Snow- I don't think I like it as a first or middle name, but it still has a feel of sparkling droplets, sort of like Illyria
Margot- Margot and Rosalind sound like a perfect pair of Victorian sisters
Portia- I like it with Rosalind, but then I don't. It's sort of a toss up
Phoebe- I love this! I can't believe I didn't think of it earlier. I especially like the nickname Bee. Roo and Bee. Adorable!
Magdalene- It reminds me a bit of Melisande, which I like, but doesn't seem right with Rosalind.
Claudia- Similar to Margot and Rosalind, this feels very Victorian
Imogen- A bit hipster, but still a very nice, slightly fantasy name
Millicent- Millicent and Rosalind sound like they stepped right out of a fairytale!
Louisa- I like it, but it seems a bit tame compared to Rosalind
Good luck! I'm sure whatever name you choose, it will be perfect.
by this point it seems like I am copying someone else but:
from your list.
Forsythia nn Thia
and something like
Jacinda Felicity Sage
Isolde Babylon Amaryllis
Renata Leona Octavia
Ginevra Forsythia Laurel
I see a Leander or Benedict in the future.
Your plans sound exhausting.
Caro, I'm obsessed with the Borgias as well!!! So much interesting stuff...
characternames; I'm actually coming around on the name Millicent! I used to loathe it, but now I see it as incredibly sweet and lovely. Imogen & Hermione are both beautiful. Snow is another one I really like... snow is my favourite thing, and the word is so cosy and comforting, but my boyfriend is not very fond of word names.
emilyva; I like Gwyneth and Ginevra very much!
Ooh, I missed this! My favorites from your new list:
Allegra - Love the musical, feminine vibe here
Amabel - Not something I would automatically think was your style, but I really, really like it and actually think it's great with Rosalind!
Anastasia - Regal and just beautiful
Apolline - Absolute elegance...so polished
Aurora - Kind of hard not to love this ultimate princess name.
Callista - Very pretty. I prefer Callisto for the stronger nymph connection, but do much prefer the more feminine sound of Callista. So hard!
Cicely - So dainty and feminine. I think this goes spectacularly with Rosalind
Cosima - I have strong bouts of love for this name; I could see myself using it one day
Cressida - Tough name sake, but pretty name and meaning
Eulalia - slightly prefer Eulalie, but this is a strong love of mine
Fiammetta - Simply can't get over this one - a perennial favorite.
Ginevra - Ok, this one wasn't on your final list, but I think I like it better than Genevieve (which has also recently won me over).
Hespera - So lovely when said correctly; I just worry that it won't be
Isolde - Great, strong, underused name. Like Hespera, pronunciation may be an issue
Lavinia - So, so great with Rosalind!!
Leandra - One of one of my cousin's middle names! It's great. I do prefer the male Leander though.
Leontine - May be a bit difficult for a little girl; I have trouble picturing it on a baby. However, it's gorgeous.
Melisande - Long time love; magical and beautiful.
Silvana - Not an obvious choice, but it's kind of winning me over
Zenobia - So very cute and charming, while also strong and assertive.
I think Amabel, Cicely, Cressida, Lavinia, Ginevra/Genevieve, and Zenobia go particularly well with Rosalind specifically, but they all would work fabulously.
Can I suggest your old Zephyrine as a replacement for/addition to Vespertine? It feels cleaner and a bit softer to me.
