So Ottilie, just curious.. Where are you in this process? Still enjoying all the collecting, or are you overwhelmed by the wash of glorious names that's pouring from/to you? Have you found one or two combinations you keep coming back to? Are you going to make a list of finalists and narrow it down? Will you throw out some of your very favorites so we can get an even clearer sense of what you respond to most in terms of rhythm, balance, imagery? I know you have scraps of paper floating around your house. Your refrigerator must look like the chalkboard in A Beautiful Mind!

Oh my goodness, this is so much harder than the boys....
I think I'm going to list my vetoes first, as there are so many lovelies that it's easier to see what I don't like as much than to decide what I love best.
Ceridwen Winterose Mist - because the -wen/Win- is repetitive and rather a mouthful
Hespera Evenstar Avis - the -ra/Ev- is slightly repetitive, but with the Ev and Av it's even more so. And I prefer Wilde over Avis
Tinuviel Honeysuckle Glow - The feeling I get from Tinuviel's meaning and associations is less whimsical and more hushed awe. I feel like pairing it with Honeysuckle and Glow takes it in a more cutesy frivolous direction
Vetoes of a picky personal nature:
Ceridwen Sunniva Eirlys - not a fan of Sunniva, although I love Eirlys.
Belphoebe Winterose Mist - despite my love affair with Winterose, I think that Winterose Mist is a little too intense with the word names, and has the potential to not be taken seriously. I hate to see this one go, but I think some of the other combos are stronger and more substantial
Hespera Silmarien Avis - Really picky now. I'm just not feeling Avis. I LOVE Silmarien though...Maybe Hespera Silmarien Wilde?
Ceridwen Chione Solenne - Again with the really picky. I'm not familiar with Solenne, and I don't love it enough to justify the repetitive hard C's in this combo.
Ceridwen Lumi Chione - I like Ceridwen Chione Winterose better. (yay! One narrowed down!)
Illyria Charis Fieldrush - I love Fieldrush, but I like it better in some of the other combos.
Illyria Charis Honeysuckle - Again, I'm not feeling the frivolity of Honeysuckle. Isn't Vivendel a honeysuckle reference? I like Illyria Charis Vivendel SO much more. It has that summery sweetness, as well as the twirling playfulness of Virelai and the liveliness of Vivian
Tinuviel Endellion Fieldrush / Tinuviel Aurora Fieldrush - These are glorious, but I think Hespera has stolen the Fieldrush combo for me!
My gosh, this is hard! I think I'm developing some favorites though.
Belphoebe Olwen Evenstar, Belphoebe Astraea Mist, Belphoebe Silversnow Maris - these are all gorgeous, amazing, and spot on with your imagery. I really couldn't narrow these further until the rest of list has been pared down.
Ceridwen Chione Winterose - this has emerged as my favorite Ceridwen combo, although I like some of the other options well enough
Hespera Evenstar Wilde, Hespera Oriel Fieldrush* - I think the former fits so perfectly into your imagery, and the latter almost makes me love Hespera, even though it's been my least favorite option throughout! Edit: the more I think about it, the more I've got to give this one to Hespera Oriel Fieldrush. This name is giving me goosebumps!
Illyria Charis Meadowsweet - I think I have to go with this one as my favorite. I know Terpsichore is your favorite muse, and this would be a good place to use her, but I personally like Meadowsweet much more. Unless Vivendel is on the table in place of Honeysuckle! Illyria Charis Vivendel rocks my socks
Tinuviel Ori Ondine - I have a feeling this is your favorite, because it has consistently shown up in your Tinuviel posts. I'll say the same thing I said about Belphoebe...if it's coming back this often, that tells me that you truly love it and should not let it go. I'd move this one into the top ten.
Tinuviel Alcyone Ondine, Tinuviel Ophelia Maris - These are both gorgeous and I have a hard time narrowing them further. I like Maris better with Belphoebe, but Ophelia is too all-encompassingly perfect to pass up. I just have a feeling you like Tinuviel Ori Ondine more.
Sorry for being so all over the place!!! Hope my scattered musings prove helpful
