My Evening Nymph
I need golden, honeydripping, starry eyed middles for Hespera. I want the names to feel like a walled, lush garden in the evening, starry skies, golden apple trees... Singing nymphs walking amidst the green green and the purple and deep pink flowers.
Tennyson has the most beautiful poem named The Hesperides, this is what I'm looking for:
"Liquid gold, honeysweet thro and thro", "The bliss of secret smiles", "Purple fringed with even and dawn", "The end of day and beginning of night".
Ideas this far: Aquila, Arcadia, Aurore, Eos, Halcyon, Isra, Lamia, Millaray, Minoo, Rosebay, Roxana, Sahar
Herbert James Draper's painting The Gates of Dawn and Tori Amos's song Datura would maybe paint a better picture of what I want than my humble words.

Cressida! It means gold and was the first thing that came to mind before I even looked up the meaning. You may also like Capitola or Capitolia. I found the later on an old gravestone.
EDIT: Just re-read...I forgot that this is a middle for Hespera. I was just thinking of first names. Hespera Cressida won't work. Scratch these suggestions.mid-20s . married to my best friend . trying for our first
Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in glorious light.
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
