After having read your intro, I think it's a lovely name. Before having read your intro, I wouldn't have liked it so much. I would instinctively pronounce it like Igor (ee-gor) with a V, which isn't...
I don't have much in the way of new suggestions, as previous posters really hit on all those I came up with, but I want to express the fact that I LOVE Persephone and Ophelia together. They are both...

I would maybe consider "tree" names to honor a Treva. Something like...

Although it's a gorgeous name, I think Sofia is just too popular at this point for a first name. I, like a previous poster, had an insanely popular name growing up. It wasn't traumatizing or...
It does sound very made up to me. What about Indira?
I think most people out there are familiar with the name Margot and the fact the T is silent. I think you can go with almost all of the Margaret nicknames--Maggie, Mari, Mare, Maisie.

I agree with PP, definitely a stand alone name, but also works as a nn for Cordelia.

I think any of your girls names sound great with Lucia,but my favorite from the list is Eva. Mila feels a tiny bit overused recently and Giselle has so many spelling iterations it would drive me...

A few of these may also be misspellings. Especially back at this time, many many people were not educated and some name spellings reflected that. My own great-great-grandmother (born and died...
I echo everyone else's love of Theo! To the names already suggested I would add (sorry for any repeats):
I hate to say this to you, but I think the spelling of "Lonna" totally changes the name. Lana is semi-exotic, beautiful, and unique but familiar. Lonna is a middle-aged woman (a la the era Donna was...
Pretty sure it was originally a boys name and I think it still sounds strongly masculine. What makes it seem slightly feminine for me is simply that the most famous Sloane for my generation would be...
I plan to have multiple children, but even if I only had one I would honor my grandfather with a middle for him or her. We were closer than I was with any other grandparent, which my parents...
I know plenty of Emilys and I still love the name. It is soft and sweet and as you said ages well. It also suits a variety of women/girls so there's less fear of it not "fitting." Yes, it's very...
I think Ivan and Irving are fine together. They're not completely matchy because the style are different and the repeated sounds are surrounded by different vowels so it isn't too close to my ears.
I prefer the Casper spelling. Even though I know the two spellings are pronounced basically the same way, whenever I see Caspar I instinctively say Cass-par instead Cass-per.

Of your top three, Ezra would be my top pick. It is so full of history and so distinctive and dignified. It's also very versatile. I could see an Ezra being at the top of his class or a more artsy...
I LOVE the name Lucy as well and like you have some concerns with using it. It sounds silly with our L-heavy last name. Although Lucy Bell is a cute name, it is undeniably close to Lucille Ball....
While I'm pretty against changing spellings just to kyoot or uneek, I think that there is a lot more leeway when it comes to middle names and when it comes to honoring family members. So if it was a...
I don't think Khaleesi is particularly useable. Its the same thing as naming your daughter Princess or Queen--it somehow feels a little tacky. I saw Pam comment on another thread and point out that...
You could combine Molly with Elizabeth to get
Emmy (M. E.)
Or do some other common M- nicknames
Or even Olly

Maybe something with a total change in sounds would sound better to you
Eloise Marian (close to Margot/Mabel)
Or a vowel to start could help...
I think it's beautiful! I like that it has an established, semi-serious first name with a surprising and sweet middle.
First off, you are putting way too much pressure on yourself! Ease up! You have recently given birth to a healthy, beautiful baby. On top of that, you are also caring for another child and dealing...
