Again, congrats! Here's my favorites with Aphrodite (will make combos when you're ready):
Belphoebe -- I adored this name last time and still do. I think it works wonderfully with Aphrodite
Cleopatra -- Two strong women who weren't defined by men. I know a Cleopatra and I think it's stunning and works really well with Aphrodite
Gwenllian -- Never heard it but love it! It sounds lovely with Aphrodite and love the history
Lyonesse - I think it sounds really cool, it's got the Arthurian thing going on.
Morgana -- One of my favorite names I'm not using. Love it a lot with Aphrodite
Sunniva -- Love the name and I don't think it matters you know some if they aren't friends. Sunny as a nickname just seems perfect next to Aphrodite for some reason
Tinuviel -- My favorite on the list with Aphrodite. Stunning name, stunning story, stunning sound
I'm going to try to think of other Norse names for you to help with your side of things. And I'm going to suggest again...Rohana. Aphrodite and Rohana. I know they share that RO sound sort of, but I think Rohana is stunning and perfect for you, plus it sounds lovely with Aphrodite.
First I just want to say, I LOVE the name Aphrodite and I think it's fantastic that you were bold enough to use it.
Anyways, I think another bold choice is the best route to go, something that really pops. From your list my favorites with Aphrodite are...
Cleopatra... Love the historical reference and love that it is also very bold
Serafina... Stunning name, it also has a nice history behind it
Atlantis... I think this could be a really pretty choice and it has a cool mythological reference without being Greek
Calypso... Also Greek, another strong female character, heroes often washed up on her shore and she nursed them, although sometimes it is said that she held them as prisoners to keep her company on her lonely island of Ogygia.
Calliope... Another Greek choice, she was one of the nine muses, she bore many children in mythology including Orpheus
Favorites from your list:
Favorite Berry Suggestion:
Valeria - I love it!
Favorites this time around:
I absolutely love Hermione--it was on my list for a while! I think Hermione and Aphrodite go well together. There is the Harry Potter thing which other people have brought up. Personally, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and wouldn't feel comfortable naming my child a "Harry Potter name" because of that--I know my friends/relatives would leap to conclusions and think I'd gone overboard in my fangirling. However, if you're surrounded by people who wouldn't judge or if you don't care about the association, I think Hermione's the best fit!
So, here are my thoughts.
Belphoebe (prefer Phoebe)
I don't like:
Gwenllian (prefer Gwendolyn)
Three categories this time! My favourite is Cleopatra! I think it's rather awesome.
Cassiopeia is really pretty too!
Thought of some other suggestions (even though I love your list as is!)
So, halfway through your first girl's post I had to stop and never got around to finishing. So enjoy!
Atalanta -- All I see is Atlanta.
Befana -- Pronounced...? Beefahnuh?
Bellicent -- Meh.
Belphoebe -- CUTE. CUTE. CUTE. Whimsical, but I'd say it's still strong. Phoebe is a strong name to me.
Bradamante -- My dislike of B names ruins this for me.
Ceridwen -- Meh.
Circe -- Pronounced?
Cleopatra -- haha with Aphrodite? Might as well. Cleo and Roo...
Gwenllian -- I like.
Hermione -- Harry Potter! <3
Hypatia -- Like the meaning, the name might grow on me. Doesn't feel feminine.
Isolde -- Awesome, awesome name.
Jezebel -- Eh, I just don't like the sound.
Lyonesse -- Okay.
Lysistrata -- Cool.
Morgana -- Yes, but Morgan is so common... :P
Musidora -- This. Is. Awesome. I love it.
Nimue -- Too cutesy with Aphrodite, but very cute.
Olympia -- Washington State Capital, so I can't see anything else.
Ourania -- Meh.
Pandeia/Pandia -- Cute.
Serafina -- Meh.
Sunniva -- Cute! Little Sunny! Adorable. Love it.
Tinuviel -- Nice.
Xenia -- I know someone with this name, and no one pronounces it right. Or she doesn't. I don't know, it's a mess. That's why I dislike X.
Zenobia -- Sounds like an alien country.
Have you considered Leandra? I don't know if it's got any mythical meaning or anything fancy, but I feel like it fits your style somewhat. Got the whole Lion thing.
Belphoebe (My favorite with Aphrodite! Also, have you ever read the Belgariad?)
Hermione and Cleopatra fit best with your sibset IMO
Like or love - I will tell you my absolute faves (but like other names too)
Belphoebe - faves
Bradamante - like this more than other names, at the moment, just not sure if it's my true fave
Morgana - faves
Brigid, Clemency, Constance, Cressida, Daphne (faves), Elaine, Eos, Eowyn, Faerydae, Giselle, Idunn, Isis(faves), Jasmine, Liriope, Loveday, Niamh, Noor, Olwen, Ophelia,Phoebe, Psyche, Selene, Signe, Sybilla, Ursula Vanessa, Yvaine and Zephyrine.
Hope you mean Arcadia instead Aradia, Arcadia is my top one in your list.

Nimue Bradamante Daphne
Morgana Zephyrine Noor
Bradamante Sybilla Psyche
One or two combo with Arcadia - until you say Aradia isn't supposed to be Arcadia
Bradamante Jasmine Arcadia
Belphoebe Arcadia Isis (I know you said last time very unusual two names with normal middle, but I think Arcadia and Isis are normal, Isis is well-known)
