For me, Ignatius fits well with the historical/religious emphasis you have chosen. It's not confusing to me at all because of its context. It is a strong intellectual match, but I also think it is a...

I went to school with a Miles in the Southern Atlantic states--he's in his 30s.
I know at least one (although I've met another) Declan in the mid-Atlantic states. Both were 10 years old or younger.
What about Jaspar? It has a clear (albeit distinct) pronunciation in both English and Spanish.
In no particular order:
If it were me, I'd make the decision based on the overall flow/sound of the FN/LN. Depending on how you pronounce Ottilie, you may have totally different syllable counts and ending sounds. To be...
I like classic, familiar names. In the past few years, I gravitated toward longer and more liquid sounding names because my last name is short, harsh sounding, and unusual. But lately I've been...
It's fair to say I overthink this stuff:
1. Familiar: Something most people will have heard of (What not to do: Maxillina Martin)

Yselle (or Ysella)
Violet (or Violette)

These names strike me as good reflections of the Reformed confession:
If I had a DD named Violet Angelina, I'd probably want something like Louisa Amabel for a sister.
I watched some Equestrian events today. These names--although nothing new--caught me eye:
It's definitely my "fantasy" girls name too. Olympia is one I'd want to make sure I had an assigned nickname for though. I love the full version, so if it were my child, I'd probably call her...

My favorite girl names were Josephine and Geneva. Josephine still resides on a subconscious list somewhere.
