Wow, so many imaginative responses!
blade -- I'm loving Gwyneira!! I also really like Nephele, Signe, and Illythia. Eirian, Nereida, Chryseis, Loviatar, and Lunete are all beautiful, but I am afraid that Husband will find them too obscure (I fear that with Illythia and Gwyneira as well but I like them so much I'll risk it!). I love Astraea, but I feel like Alice Astraea is very hissy. Melisande is a beautiful name, but I will always associate her with Jacqueline Carey's beautiful but heartless villainess. I'm on the fence about Rhiannon. And while I absolutely love Aravis in the Chronicles of Narnia, her name always makes me think of avarice.
dannikelli - Illyria is one of my favorite names, and Alice Illyria is very silky feeling. I like! Love the imagery of Ondine, but not the sound. Seraphine/Seraphina is gorgeous and definitely going on my girls' list, but I'm not sure about the flow with Alice, given the two S sounds back to back. Araminta is darling, but I'm not sure Hubs will go for it. Alice Ophelia is another favorite...Ophelia has been in my shortlist for a while!
mischa - I love that your suggestions are all over the map in style, feel, and sound! Persephone is stunning, but one of my dearest friends has loved it for decades, so I could never steal it. Avalon and Avonlea are GPs for me, as my husband has this thing against place names. Galadriel is another one he would veto, though I can't help but be attracted to the thought...she is so powerful and ethereal, exactly the imagery I go for. Primrose is too cute, but so associated with Hunger Games right now. I am LOVING Lumière, Delphine, Endellion, and Winter. I'm on the fence about Miniver and Mireille. The former I want to like, but it's so close to Minerva, and I feel like that's a heavier name than I want to pair with Alice. The latter I have no idea how to pronounce >_>
irmgard+theodorian - I love Eirlys, but isn't it too similar to Alice in sound? Ophelia I adore, and Alice Viola sounds lovely
whirligig - Ivy is my favorite of your suggestions. Alice Ivy is darling, but I think I want something longer.
Thank you all so much for your feedback! Keep your amazing suggestions comingZion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
