Have you run across short form Fiamma? It stands on its own, but would make a great nn.

Omya = life-giver
Odele = song or harmony
I also wanted to mention that I've fallen completely in love with Illyria, after your previous posttea drinker + cat lover + ever-evolving baker+cook...positive realist who loves beautiful words, names, and images.
Feel free to ask me about Sanskrit-based names.

Jane. Nicknames don't have to be so organic, IMO.
Secondly, I think Fiammetta is so strong, as a 4-syllable Italianate name ending with A, that for harmony's sake you should avoid anything similar in the middle. Personally I would not use anything ending in A.
Golden thoughts: you're in great good luck that the Latin 'Aur,' gold, has come into many languages as 'Or.' you have a host of golden options, my favorite being Oriel.
Osanne is a French name with a warm, golden glow; it's a saints name perhaps derived way, way back from 'Hosanna.'
Do you know the legends of Ophir? It was a fabulously wealthy place, with gold and jewels beyond human measure. It drove the ancient world crazy, as did the Legend of El Dorado centuries later. Ophir has the same quasi-mythical feel as does Illyria, to me.
So, I like Fiammetta Oriel Osanne, or Fiammetta Oriel Ophir.Blade, MD
