    I love Blade's idea of putting Evelake on your girl-list. It reminds me of one of Gerard Manley Hopkins' compound words. Speaking of Hopkins, how about:

    Kestrel (as opposed to Windhover)
    Dappledawn
    Nightingale
    Andromeda (I think of the constellation, but there is the whole sea monster story..)

    And randomly:
    Verdigris - as in copper's minty green patina. I love this word- makes me think of onion domes and overgrown fountains. And I've always pronounced it "VUHR-dig-ree."

    Altalune is my suggestion, though this may be too tied to Uma Thurman since she just used it for her baby. But I do think it is so lovely. NB says it roughly translates to "over the moon" which is beautiful.

    How about:
    Rhapsody
    Cypress
    Mandolin
    Story
    Mercy
    Starling
    Magnolia
    Marigold
    Temperance
    Muse
    Arrow
    Chamomile
    Citrine
    Memory
    Owl - maybe a middle
    Remedy
    Quest
    Solstice
    Thistle
    Dahlia
    Marigold
    Lightning

    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.

    Even though you said it clashes with your last name, have you considered using Everild anyways since you both love it and are having trouble finding something else you both love? Maybe your love for it can override the clash!
