Minnie could be a really endearing nickname for Milena. I think Millicent could also work, but I'm somewhat liberal when it comes to nicknames.
Does anyone know if there is a website or app that lets you type in name choices and will build combinations with all of the names that you input? I'm almost sure that I used to have something that...

Thoughts that I had:
Elsa Bethany Amara
Elsa Claire Amara
Elsa Daphne Amara
Elsa Faith Amara
Elsa Hilary Amara
Elsa Jacqueline Amara
Elsa Nadine Amara
Elsa Ophelia Amara
Stretchy Ideas for thought:
Just read through the comments to check and wanted to offer up Bruna or Brunella as alternatives.
I like them both (with a slight bent toward Tamsin, because Thomasina, and by extension, Thomasine, feel like cats names to me because of "The Three Lives of Thomasina"). Regardless, I think either...
I was really intrigued by this combination, and just wanted to say that I think it works very well together. I would probably call Paloma, "Polly", but it's wonderful on its own.

Another idea for compromise based on what you mentioned, Elissa (http://www.behindthename.com/name/elissa-1) which is another name for Dido, queen of Carthage. Sounds like Alyssa, but is an uncommon...
I had an older cousin named Larissa, and don't know many women or girls named Alyssa despite having gone to an all women's college and substituting in 7 school districts K-12. I know a handful, but...
I've really enjoyed reading this thread, but I find it curious that the discussion is geared solely to feminine names. How do you folks approach feminism in naming when it comes to naming sons? Does...
I see someone else mentioned Philly, so I think you could possibly stretch Ophelia to Pippa / Pippy / Pip since Philippa (the feminine version of Phil) lends itself to those names.
Sorry for any repeats

Let me just say that I'm not married or planning to be anytime soon. However, I have always wanted to add my maiden name as a second middle name. For me, I have several professional certificates that...
My family also pronounces Piera that way. It's a lovely name, and I really like the variants: Pierina, Pietra, and Pietrina.
Moira is also very nice. Although a little matchy, my heart would burst...

I prefer the style and look of Oriana, but I think Ariana is probably more familiar and easier for most people. It just depends on what you are looking for in a name.
Also, I am curious about...
I'm glad that you like it. I've been told that Ania is the usual nickname, but I was thinking that I would use Anya to aid in the pronunciation of Aniela.
I know of this as a Polish name spelled Aniela. Here it's a variation of Angela and means "Angel." It is one of my favorite names and I would love to use it some day.

@rainbowbright908 and @maggiemary
Like I said, I had way too much fun with this (Side Note: I love puns! The first few Aidens that I ever met, I asked them where their brothers, Abeddin...

I agree with the pp's McAiden, but I could see that one taking off along with McAden and McKaiden. For when you can't decide between Caden/Cayden/Kaiden and Aiden, and want a Mc in there too.
I wonder if it's related to the male Arabic name, Sofian or Sofiane. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sofiane
I do like Vivianie as it is. If I were in your position, I'd probably put Viviane (after the Lady of the Lake) on the birth certificate and call her Vivianie / Annie.
That's basically the exact problem that I've been trying to figure out. I feel the same way about sounds vs. looks. The story that I'm working on is a survival based tale (sort of post-apocalytic)....
If you are in the US, I think it will depend on what region that you are in. I would say them differently, but only slightly. AH-lee-na vs. EH-lee-na though if I said them quickly, they would sound...
