    I think Nepenthe would work very well. I also like Vespertine for you, but maybe I'm biased.

    Ottilie, I think it is very brave of you to start over, as it were. Not to trivialize in any way, but I think finding the right name is like how everyone talks about finding the right wedding dress. You're supposed to just know, and if you don't that means there's something wrong. That doesn't mean that all your other choices aren't incredible...it just means there's something better out there for you! :-)

    So in the interest of brainstorming and refreshing the palate, I'm going way out in left field with some purely fantastical nature names. Some of these will probably be way too over the top or hippie-ish, but if the abstract interpretation of what you want the name to feel like hasn't been working out, it can't hurt to try the literal angle!

    Seawillow (starting with this one because it's an actual name!)
    Silversnow
    Windrose
    Evergrace
    Piperita (Latin name for peppermint)
    Evenstar
    Meadowlark
    Tourmaline
    Winterose
    Hypersthene (means extreme strength, a green-silver metallic mineral often found in meteorites)
    Larkspur
    Boheme
    Silverwick
    Wintermist
    Stellaluna
    Willowisp
    Nephrite (a type of jade)
    Windemere
    Gossamer
    Skylark
    Elderberry (or Goldberry for that matter! Still can't believe they left Tom Bombadil and wife out of the movie....>_<)
    Morrowind
    Aventurine
    Evensong
    Wisteria nn Wish
    Orinthia (pine tree)
    Rosethorn
    Clearwater
    Damascena (Rosa damascena is the Latin name for damask rose)
    Silversheen (type of moonstone)
    Mistfeather
    Evernia (Latin name for Oakmoss)
    Crescence
    Miaplacidus (name of a star in Carina meaning "placid waters")
    Tinkersnow
    Evergreen
    Symphony
    Starsong
    Myristica (Latin name for nutmeg)
    Evanescence

    And one random tidbit from Arthurian legend: Bellicent, another name for Morgause.

    Hope these help spark some inspiration! :-)
