I really have not a lot to offer to most of your threads, half of the names I've never heard of but it's expanding my horizons and knowledge cause I then have to rush right off and see what fabulous women this little lady could be named after so that's fun
Also I love how you get such detailed images and stories from names, I think you could write a whole book purely about the images you get from certain names & it's be a smash hit, I know I'd love it... whenever I see a new thread of yours I love seeing what new names they are or what awesome images you can conjure
Ok enough of my gushing lol
I picked the names from your list that I felt I could pronounce and that I liked personally, the others I just couldn't quite connect to:
Halcyon/Halcyone - this name makes me think of cyclone but not in a bad way I mean I work in childcare so I know children are little cyclones but it's not always a bad thing, they might make messes but it's because they are busy learning and exploring and discovering and children are constantly moving and movement is growth and life and I think that's a positive thing, a good way to live life is always on the go, always learning, always keeping active and expanding your horizons... although this is probably a name with an entirely different origin story/myth attached to it but that was my opinion untouched by it's story, like a pure reaction to the name itself rather than relating the name to the character/figure it is related to if that makes sense
Sylvana - I LOVE THIS NAME! I have never heard of it before but I adore the name Sylvia and this reminds me of Sylvia but with a cool sort of Eastern European/mysterious/exotic twist (in my mind anyway) plus the nn Sylvie which I find completely adorable still works. It's cool and quirky and I just really dig it
Zephyrine - I adore this name too, it makes me think of wind and breezes, not nessecarily a winter wind but more just air and light and floating but still being somewhat grounded not totally airy fairy, plus I think of speed/fast movement which again I think is a positive like I rambled about with Halcyon(e)
Also I saw mentioned:
Phaedra - I think I have a new love I have always adored the name Faye but it seems short for me, maybe I like Faye because of Morgan(a) Le Fay and how it means fairy which I think is awesome but to me (& remember I'm a novice at this images for names thing) Phaedra is more of a wintery fairy than just Faye which is kind of flowers and springtime
Demeter - I love the name though I think in this case I'm being influenced by the figure in mythology rather than a pure reaction to the name but that's not a bad thing. I always felt like her feelings/actions were brushed aside in the whole Persephone/Hades thing and that's her main story. I always feel like there's more to her and her story that has somehow got lost in the years. To me the name is strong and grounded and giving but again this might just be reacting to how I'd view the goddess Demeter and I'm not really well versed in Greek mythology (but looking to fix that) and be really off point
I was wondering how you felt about the name Lavinia I'm not sure why but I feel like it sort of fits for you I get a very magical feeling when I think of this name and I always think of Circe and Hecate so maybe that's why
I also thought of Signy/Signe which I think is a viking name that I think means victory and I really like it
Fro your list I like
Calliope, Calypso and Calista
or these but I don't think they are your style
With Hespera I like Rivendell, Zephyrine and Juno. I'd like to suggest Marisol and Delphine.
Belladonna is a pretty famous porn star - don't know if that puts you off or not but just thought you should know.
Ruolan; Pleiades is gorgeous, and Pleione too (mother of the Pleiades). Chryseis, I could use this as a middle, maybe. I love it, but it's not quite substantial enough as a first. I love the Tolkien names too, Théoden's on my boy list! Finnish is from an entirely different language group (Uralic) the Scandinavian languages (Germanic), but I know some Sami which is spoken by the Sami people in Northern Norway so the pronunciation comes easy to me.
Jasmine; Galilea's too place namey to me. And it hasn't got the magnificent starry beauty of Galileo.
Rosey; yeah, Aphro & Juno might be too much. Besides, it I add it I would have three -o ending names on my list. Zephyrine Hespera Plum is lovely, but we know a little Plum.
Harlow; yes, I do love Zephyrine. I think I would only add this if we took Morgana off the list though, they feel pretty similar to me.
Yael; yup, long and tedious... blah!!! Happy to see you like Zephyrine!
Liza; thanks for your gushing!! So sweet! Sylvana's definitely mysterious to me as well. Like a fairy tale forest or something... Thanks for your words on Zephyrine and Halcyone too - a little cyclone! Phaedra, oh I just find this name so sad. Her story is just terrible. Demeter I do love, and her story is very powerful, maternal and haunting. I love Lavinia! But not for my baby. Lanuvina would be better. Signe's on my middle list. ;)
Rollo; Lilith is on my middle list I think. And maybe Ianthe too.
Seazuno; Marigold is very sweet but not my style. I love Delphine, but I know one and only think of her when I see it.
Philomena; that doesn't bother me at all. I don't mind porn stars. Might be weird, but I don't...
Chione (but unsure about Husband's feelings on this one, he gave it a meh)
Morvoren (if we cut Morgana too)
Persephone (but Husband isn't keen on it right after Dita)
Vespera or Vespertine
My fave from your list are Zephyrine, Vespertine, Nephele, Elbereth and Ostara.
My fave is Zephyrine or Ostara.
Going to jump on the Zephryine wagon. I like it with your other choices and it feels most like Hespera to me.
Oh no, I loved Hespera. But alright: Challenge Accepted!
No A, C, E, G, I, M, O, P, or T names.
FROM YOUR LIST:
Belladonna - I totally get why you like Belladonna but I don't know how I'd feel about naming a daughter after a poison. Especially if you don't like Bella as a nn. Though I guess Bonnie would be cute.
Elbereth - I love this. So different from Dita. Pretty awesome.
Vespertine - I like Vespertine more than Vespera. I also like Vesper but with Vespera feels like you are just trying to replace Hespera.
Too bad Zenobia might not make it back on the list. She would be beautiful.
Have you considered Hecate? She's on your mn list.
OTHER SUGGESTIONS: (some might be a little out there - even for you. But this was fun!)
H- NAMES: Hannelore, Hedviga, Harmony/Harmonia, Haven, Herodota, Heliodora, Herewynn, Hephzibah (nn Eppie), Hesione, Hippolyta (wasn't she on your list once as well?)
OTHER NAMES: Frieda/Freyde, Feodore, Freidolina, Fulgora, Keziah, Leceline, Quennelle, Renaissance, Solveig, Soligena, Sauvain, Saturnalia, Walburga
Love Vespera for you! I think it's very pretty and fits well with sister Aphrodite.
The others from your list that I particularly like are: Zephyrine and Ursula.
