I am still loving Cassandra (which has been my favourite girl name for around five years now) but have recently succumbed to that most terrible of name-lover afflictions - a gradual supposition that there might be something better out there. Can anyone suggest names similar in style to Cassandra (or other names in my signature) which preferably begin with a C, and flow well with Eira Baudelaire (EYE-ruh BOE-duh-lair) as middle names? I hope it's not too much to ask - looking back over my post, the requirements for this imaginary name seem to be a little demanding, even for the namemaestros that make up the Berry community, so please don't worry if you can't think of anything. I'm hoping this feeling of doubt will eventually disappear...
Coriolana - lol, made up feminzation of Coriolanus but still cool
Cassia. I think it means cinnamon tree
Cassandra Madeira Baudelaire resolves the flow issue. It's a gorgeous name!
Castalia meaning fountain of the muses!
Cassandra is beautiful! I like the suggestion of Cassia. What about Cosima? It's Greek for universe, the feminine of Cosmo. I absolutely love it. It has the same elegant, exotic, romantic feel as Cassandra to me and is so unique.
@kala_way - Oh my goodness, I absolutely love all of your suggestions, but by special favourites have to be Carlotta, Corinthia, Cordelia and Catriana (which I had never heard before now and really actually am already in love with!) Thank you so much for commenting - I agree that someone should really have made up Coriolana before now, if only just for the awesome factor...thank you!
@slave bracelets - Thank you very much for commenting - I do like Cassia, but am not too fond of either the alternative pronunciation (CASH-uh) or the limited nicknames (Cassie, Cass and Sia) - thanks for the idea though! Just out of interest, how did you choose your username? There might be no story behind it at all, sorry, I'm just a nosey parker...thank you again!
@tay2thestars - Ooh, Corisande is beautiful, and Bronwen and Fiametta are also gorgeous - these are such lovely suggestions which I never even considered, for some reason - thank you for reminding my muddled brain of the ones that slipped through the net!
@taz - Calla and Candida are stunning, and, again, ones I had forgotten completely! Thank you very much.
@rkrd - Thank you so much - it wasn't so much the flow issue I had with the name, only that Cassandra suddenly seemed a bit lacklustre compared to some other, more 'out-there' choices! I'm glad you love the name too, though. I hope it can regain its former sparkle for me *crosses fingers*
@larkub101 - Wow, Castalia is so beautiful! And with such a lovely meaning too - how could I have overlooked this one? Thank you for suggesting it - another name that is new to me, which I love; I am so lucky to have the Berries on hand!
@noora - I'm so happy that people seem to love Cassandra - it has always been neglected somewhat, I feel, and I'm trying to make everyone see how beautiful it is without simultaneously making it more popular...tricky, I'm finding. Cosima is gorgeous, but a close friend of mine has already bagged the name for future use - why must friends always do that?! Thank you so much for your help - it's just my luck about Cosima!
I really like Cassandra I would suggest Ceridwen or Carys :)
