Hi clandestine berry. Sorry you're in a tough spot. I'm going to take the devil's advocate pro-abortion stance here. I've had one, and though it was extremely sad at the time, it was also what needed...
Saint Mischa! Thank you so much for all the background. Both St Xenias seem pretty amazing, but X of P is particularly interesting. Now I want to go to Russia to legitimatize my name choice. Haha!...

Raphael David is handsome and well-balanced. I strongly associate David with Michelangelo's sculpture, and Raphael with Raphael Sanzio, so it strikes me as a very Renaissance combination.
Oh Rollo, I'm so sorry. Pets are sometimes friends in a way that people aren't. It's terrible when they die.
Hugs and condolences to you.

I think a clean three-syllable middle name like Celia wants a slightly more elaborate first name.
Alessandra Celia (a lot of L and S sound, but it sounds like rippling water to me)
Leonor Celia ...
Hooray thanks Zelia! So it's a short E everywhere but in Xenia Ohio, apparently. Isn't that "nya" sound great? When I try to add "ksyen" to the mix though, I sound like I have peanut butter stuck to...
Oh sorry! Love Ms Lindgren, but I haven't read this particular book and I don't speak German, so I wasn't aware of the "fatty" thing. I do think Madicken has a nice sound, but then again I like the...

It's true, Celia is the instigator, and she's great. She's mischievous, adorable, loyal - they're a delightful pair of cousins. But Rosalind gets the better lines. She's bold and brilliant,...
Brigid, thank you. It's good to hear from someone about St. X. I like your Tzar/tsunami analogy. And thanks for saying that about my Godfather, but I do think he'd be silently disapproving if we...
My faves are:
Cornelius Edmund Archimedes
Cornelius Odin Galileo
Cornelius Edwin Abernathy
Cornelius Odin Casimir
I want to like Cornelius Odin Zane, but I hear "insane."

Rosalind is the better character, but Celia is the better name, imo. I say "SEE-lih-yuh" - kind of like "SEE-lee-yuh" but not over-annunciating the "lee." I prefer it to Cecilia. More elemental.
Moonkai and Dantea, so if we were going to be all trashy apostrophic about it, we could name her "k'Zenya!" Hee hee.
Faithnamer, interesting. "X-factor" indeed! I'd say Xenia's got that.
Oh, and I think rkrd thought "little mad one" because of "mad" plus the diminutive suffix "ita."
Madicken is pretty great as is, imo. Madita falls a little flat for me, sorry. Love Dita on its own though. From Margaret, there's Marguerite. It has some of Madita's delicacy, and would give you the...
Lucy (with Jude only)
Oh! Relief. A muted K. Thank you that makes sense. We have Zen monks in the family so just flat "ZENya" would feel odd to me.
Ooh replies! Thank you everyone!
An Ohio-dweller, Greek and Spanish speakers, Brits, and one bonafide Xenia! Ophelia it's helpful to hear that you enjoy the "ks" sound of your X and that you feel...
Ha! Quite a story. I think Dulcinea's perfect for a windmill-fighter such as yourself.
Don Quixote is an incredible piece of literature, and Dulcinea is a whimsical, storybook, lilting kind of name....

Emmaline is "EMaline."
For Emma-LYN I'd go with Emmelyn, Emmalyn or Emelyn
Can anyone tell me the correct pronunciation of Xenia? I know it's "ZEEnia" here in the US... which I love, but what's the Berry consensus? How widely accepted is "ZEEnia" for Xenia? Is...
Your A-names are freed up now that Aphrodite’s in the middle. Alcyone?
Some more, just to add to the muddle:
Ælfwynn (elf joy!)
Ooh la la I absolutely love your last name!
Big Rex Harrison fan here, but Henry Higgins on a real boy sounds silly to me.
Liam Harrison H..? If you're looking for an H name close to Henry,...
