Alina-- this is less obviously Greek and a bit more bland than your other choices
Marina-- beautiful, dignified, saintly name, works in Italian & Greek, nature-inspired, easy to spell and pronounce: the winner. In honor of the Great Martyr Marina.
Petra-- I'm very fond of this name, but it does strike others as heavy. It also feels more Slavic rather than Mediterranean. In honor of St Peter
Juliana-- beautiful and lilting
Seraphina-- again beautiful and saintly, for St Seraphim. Works in Italian as well as Greek. With a 2-syllable last name you can pull it off.
Natalie-- prefer the Mediterranean Natalia. Natalia Juliette would be a beautiful pairing.
Chrysanthi-- I love this name, 'golden flower,' but I would test-drive it with non-Orthodox friends. Also, not sure if there is a St Chrysanthi?
Philippa-- beautiful and dignified; can be given in honor of St Philip
Theoni-- I love this name but the usual spelling, Theone, is misread as "the one." Perhaps Theonie?
Mariana- beautiful but prefer Marina-- less fussy and less close to marinara sauce.
Marena-- much, much prefer Marina
Eleni- beautiful, light Greek name, in honor of St Helena. Will strike many as modern and will blend in well with the Kaylees, etc in her classroom.
Lena (Leh-na)-- nice but less striking than your other choices
Angel-- much prefer Abgela. Angel is most commonly a Hispanic boys' name; Angela is classier
Zoey-- not nearly as striking or dignified as your other choices
Adelaide-- do not prefer-- enjoy your saintly Mediterranean choices more.
Alika-- I don't know this name either. I looked it up and saw it was a Hawaiian version of Alice? Either way, not as distinctive as your other choices.
Koralia- don't care for the K
Evathia- love, though would spell Evanthe / EvanthiaBlade, MD
