I quite like Josephine, but with Diesel being a bit further out there Kalliope makes more sense (and is lovely).
I like Natalie, Melinda, or Noelle, in about that order. Rowan is pretty unisex with a surname for a middle, same for Madison and Morgan and Brooke. That first name middle name combo ends up...
I think it's fine. It's one syllable longer - I get that it's also more letter and sounds but it's not insane. It's not Joan and Alexandria. And names don't have to be perfectly matched. It also...

I'm also a Jessica of the 1980s and I agree. I have no doubt that some people had weird experiences with highly popular names, but I was never in class with another Jessica until graduate school...
Gemma would pair best with a one or three syllable middle name that doesn't start with a vowel or end with -a.
Gemma Rosemary (if...
Elliott to me is way more English surname than the Eli and Elias et al from which it supposedly springs. I wouldn't worry too much. Christian, well, I have a harder time hearing that and assuming...
Ursus, Urso, or Ursulo, from the Latin for bear?
Karhua is the Finnish word for bear.
Blanco is Spanish for white.
I think Knut (prn'd Canute) was that famous polar bear in Germany a few years...

I know you want distance from Sage but a nice tie in with Sophia or Sophie, besides the S, is that they mean wisdom, and Sage, besides the herbal meaning, means wise.

It's okay. I'd think it would get heard as Selene a lot.

There are so many! Part of it depends on what you consider classic.
Albert - Alberta
Alexander - Alexandra et al
Andrew - Andrea
Anthony et al - Antonia, Antoinette
Basil - Basilia
Posy is nice. I have a hard time imagining it on an older woman, but to be sure, if I met one, I would adjust. My challenge with names that are light, like Daisy, and/or nicknamey, like Maisie(and I...
Well good! Then by all mean keep it : D!
Hmmm. Some of these just won't work in a double-barrel. With Jennings such a heavily surname name I want to urge someting similar, but Barksdale and Henderson are pretty unusable on a girl for the...
I think if you love Archer more than all other names, it sounds fine enough, it is a little catchy, but in a fairly neutral or even positive way.
Well, I really love the name, so yes, I personally would. But if he doesn't really care, as in,he likes the name but isn't tied to it for family reasons, and doesn't dislike all other names or...
They really are all nice. Antonia has a beginning very close to Ana, and Clara is very close to Lara. This could work to help her like his names, or, could help win him over to her side, if he sees...

Nameberry claimes Bryonia is a Greek variant of Bryony (meaning to sprout), although I'm not sure how much I believe that.
More Greek Nature:
Calandra - Lark
Calantha - Lovely Flower (also a nod...

Re: Veda and Lena, do you like the Greek Leda?

Phaedra Melisande (maybe not if your last name starts wit S?)

Agreed that it's a lovely list!
Names that honor Melissa that are middle name worthy
These are all nice. I do find Melise a little...

Greek flower names could include Anthea, Evanthe, Iris. Evanthe is kind of rhymey with Ariadne though, and Anthea starts with the same letter. Iris of course means rainbow in Greek but would tie to...

Pamela has the Mel element. Although it's an English creation, it's from the Greek idea of pan - Mel - all honey, and related to Melissa in meaning by that too. Philomela is Greek and has Mel,...
