My only knowledge of Pyramus and Thisbe is from the play within a play in midsummers nights dream. So, the name reminds me of a man in (bad) drag, saying something about kissing a wall in falsetto.

Love it. I think of the flower and the color. Since it's a pretty common word, I don't see why it would be hard for people to pronounce.

My name is much more popular with little ones than it is for my generation. After always being the only Ellie/Eleanor, I now hear moms yelling my name in the supermarket. Very strange.
Pamona is a good liberal arts college. It's not a baby name.
I've been called Nellie at times. Also, Elsinore (after the castle in Hamlet), but that's kindof a joke more than a real nickname.
I looked up constellations, and found the following names.
Ursula (Ursa major)
Leontine, Leonie (Leo)

When I hear Maybelline, I think of the song "Maybelline, why can't you be true" by Chuck Berry. It's a great song.
I think you want to go for namesakes. What strong women do you admire?

Another queen/empress: Josephine!

Since you seem to have a queen of England theme going, you might consider other English queen's names:
I love Dorothy, but it's a family name for me. It fit beautifully on my great-aunt until her death and on my cousin from birth to her present teenaged angstiness.
Hmmm... I personally love tomboys with feminine names.
Jo (Joan, Josephine, Joanne, Joanna, Johanna)
My friend Goldie's full name is Golnaz--a persian name meaning yellow flower.

DH and I are zeroing in on a name! We both like Cora.
The name seems fresh and new to me, uncommon. I've only met one Cora in my life. But I notice that it's moving up the US SSA name rankings...

Cecile is a great addition!
Hmmmm.... Now, do any of them go with Rosemary, Iris or Eve?
Iris Cecily -- I love this, but think DH...

Out of the middle names I listed, I think I like Willow Joy Huntley the best.

I'm not sure which of these would work best with Willow, but here are some variations for you to consider!

Cecily was on my list of first names, but I didn't think of it as a Cecilia variation!
Agatha is intriguing. I'm not sure if I like it or not, but it does have a strong feel to it.

I haven't seen anyone mention the fact that there are fewer male names in common use than female names. Looking at the SSA name data by decade, you can see that the top 100 names accounted for 48 %...

DH and I are going to give our new baby girl a middle name to honor a family member. For our family keeping the first sound/first initial is enough. Help us think of variations! We have three starter...

I think it's an unusual enough name that your child will define it for whomever she meets. It's beautiful.
I met a little girl named Amelie (the French name, like the movie) who went by Mellie. She was pretty cute!

I've known men named Zalman, Zenon, Zoltan and Zombor. They sound like real names to me. They sound very eastern european--all these dudes were from eastern/central europe--but real. Any of those...
