I watch the show and I made the connection immediately, but I don't think many people would.
Sansa has always sounded weird to me because it's the word for the olive oil waste in Italian (my first...

Aglaia. It's my favorite name (of both my girl and boy lists), it's very meaningful for me and I'm not 100% sure I won't use it, but the assonance with the word ugly bothers me a lot.

My favorite from your list is Isobel, I also like Louise and Laurel.

I love Edmund and Frederick (with this spelling), but I dislike the nicknames. The only one I wouldn't mind is Ed, but I can't say I like it.
Natala is not italian, Natalia (pron. nah-tah-LEE-ah) and Natalina (but I don't recommend this one) are.
I love Sofia but I wouldn't use it because of its popularity.
I also like Willow and Amaia...

Thalia was also the name of one of the Charites, so it's strongly tied to nature. But I consider it a spring name, not wintery.
I voted Flora Grace because I love Flora, but I don't like Grace.

Virna (from Latin vernus, spring)
I hadn't realized before that I only like "Vi" names!

If it's fantasy ok, I would have three girls and name them Aglaia, Ofelia and Ermione (er-MEEOH-neh).
In reality I could never handle three kids. And I come from a family of egocentric women, I...

Orpheus is my favorite of your list, Orfeo is one of the names I love most.
I also like Orion, Endymion and Robin.
Apollo is fascinating but I don't like the sound of the name, I prefer...
Thanks to all of you for your answers.
I live in Italy, but I didn't ask because I want to use this name, I was curios to see how it is perceived :)
It's a variant of Muriel and reminds me of Merle Oberon so it sounds feminine to me.
I like the sound, the meaning and the blackbird association. I think it would be perfect for a little girl born...

I like Romeo more.

In Italian we say NEH-veh :) It's a nice name. But I don't know if the pronunciation could cause problems in English.
We have a different idea of class I guess :)

It doesn't mean rebellion but Guia (GOO-yah) is the feminine form of Guido/Guy. I've always loved this name.
I love Victor. Vincent is nice but Victor has a stronger sound.

I usually like:
Names of greek origin that contain the phi
Girl names ending in -illa, -elia, and -ia
Boy names that contain r (also some girl ones actually)
Boy names that contain both d and r...

That's how it worked for me. My family and older friends still use my legal name. Actually some newer friends prefer using that one too. Currently I have four flatmates and two of them use my legal...

Though I wouldn't be able to change my name completely, I go by a nickname that has nothing to do with my real name. It's a variant of a family name and I would like to add it as second name to the...

Eurydice I love this one!
Juniper not my style at all... but I like the sound a lot
I want to like Circe but what comes to my mind when I think of it is pigs....

Orfeo is one of my favorite names, I wouldn't use it because I love Ofelia more and they sound too similiar.
I didn't know and find interesting:
