    The Twelve Dancing Princesses

    I'm reading a novel-length adaptation of the fairytale "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," and of course all I can think about is the names! In the original fairytale, the princesses, tragically, didn't have names. In this book they are all named after flowers (Rose, Lily, Jonquil, Hyacinth, Lilac, Poppy, Daisy, Violet, Iris, Orchid, Pansy and Petunia.)
    What would you name the twelve dancing princesses? Here's my attempt. I made all the names somehow dance or music related.

    Allegra
    Giselle
    Calypso
    Prima
    Minuet
    Isadora
    Octavia
    Terpsichore
    Aria
    Lyric
    Odette
    Grace

    Love your list!

    I used to read this story to my sister when we were young.

    Im a writer and am currently working on my own adaptation. Would you mind sharing the name of the book your reading? I don't want to give away all the names of the sisters in my story, but I will tell you one is Diana.
