Theo Maxwell and Elodie Isannah

I like Valentina, Aurelia, Elodie, Guinevere, and Amoret with Isadora—it's hard to find something with the same mix of quirkiness, elegance, and gravitas, but those are all close.

Thank you! I can't seem to decide whether I like Auberon or Oberon better :s
I think Zelda Marisol and Vera Marisol are the standouts.

These are all over the place, and I'm terrible at no-frills, but:
Yep, Shakespeare was good at making up girls' names (although to be fair, Imogen was probably a printer's mistake, not his.) He also (probably) made up Perdita, Miranda, Cordelia (sort of), and...
I quite like both, but I actually think Zoe ages better than Lola. It could just be because I've met a few dogs named Lola, but Zoe feels more complete and grounded to me. It's my favorite popular...

Aya is gorgeous and super easy for English-speakers to say. Other favorites are Izumi, Eriko (Erina is also lovely), Takiko, and Aki. Others I like that transition easily from Japanese to English are...

Eliza Vivian and Lewis Eliot Gray are awesome.
Current combos for them are Viola Belphoebe, Cosima Vale [Odette] and Cleo Iphigenia [Beatrice/Beatrix.]
Same as this. I still like it, though—I can't seem to help but like every single Is- name.
My favorite S names are Sancia, Sybella, and Susanna. I'm also fond of Silvia, Sonia, and Saffron.

Muchas gracias! Your girls' names are excellent—Tatiana Lior will be a great addition!
Thanks :) You know I adore 99% of the names in your signature—I'm always happy to see Esme Mazarine and...

Interesting thread—I've never really thought about this before!
I guess for me it's because names are such a great intersection of language, culture, and personality stuff. There's nothing else...
Already posted in the official group about this, but I've got postcards! Shoot me a pm if you want one from the far off, exotic land of Washington, D.C.

Thanks, Ash! I am so incredibly here for your Odette Giovanna. And Aramis (!!) goes so well with the rest of your list. I vote Sebastian Harbor Aramis!
Thank you! I'm having the hardest time...
Eh. Verity is interesting, but it ultimately feels too buttoned-up and indoorsy to me, as opposed to the almost Byzantine, dripping-with-gems vibe of Emiliana and Raphael. Verity feels like a pale...
I agree with myosotis—love Guinevere Isadora, Harriet feels a bit off. I think a two syllable name would flow better, especially it it was a bit lighter and less clunky than Harriet. It's totally...

Morgana and Sybella/Sybilla feel like stormy names to me. Off the top of my head, there's also Megha, an Indian name that means "rain cloud."
Marigold Aleda is lovely! May I ask where you got Aleda? I had a great great aunt with that name (pronounced the way you do but spelled Elida) and I've never been able to find it anywhere else.
Sort of like the above, I'd pronounce it "bee" in English or "BAY-uh" in French/Spanish/etc. If you want the second pronunciation, I think it would help to use an accent: Béa.

Olive Seraphina is amazing! Love the contrast of quirky, vintage Olive with the frilly, more modern-sounding Seraphina. I agree with Katinka that Emilie is the best fit with your sons' names, though....
