    Our Names for Baby Girl (again, we know)

    We've gone over our list a thousand times, but we aren't falling head over heels with any names. Our boy list was easy, we've got our five stunning names and plenty to spare, but our girl list is a terrible mess. So we want to start over.

    Here's what we want: A name that evokes images/feelings of nature; trees, rivers, waterfalls, starry skies. We like both lush green and blue, and frosty wintery names. We don't like too frilly and cutesy names. The child's last name will be one syllable, ends in -s. We like mythology, but want to stay away from the major gods (Zeus, Hera etc.), and bad associations (Circe, Echo).

    The names we have this far (love them, but something is off...): Niniane, Vesper/Hespera, Belphoebe, Cyrene, Thalia, Illyria, Everild, Tinuviel and Ophelia.

    Possible brothers are: Endymion, Herne, Orion, Orpheus and Theron.

    I also love Willow and Chloe, but can't use these.

    We are very thankful for all the help we got on our previous threads, you are all amazing. If you're still reading...

    I'm new to your name list quest so I have no idea if you've considered these or not, but when I read wintery and mythological my thought was Aurora.

    Also, if you like Vesper but something just doesn't seem right, what about Vesta? She was a Roman goddess I believe.

    Yesterday while reading a retelling of the Parsifal legend, I came across the name Herzelaide, the name of his mother in the version I was reading.
