    First of all, I'm excited that perhaps we can transition from name consultation to wedding dress consultation here. I think it will greatly cushion the naming-hangover we'll all feel when your baby is actually born and named. "Ottilie had her baby - oh what a letdown!" Kidding!

    Secondly, I am loving all of your names. I vote for Zenobia Beatrice Marian. The non-A-endings allow Zenobia to be the most elaborately feminine of the three. It's somehow made more delicate by the surety of Beatrice and Marian. Plus that "bia-bea" sound is pretty cool.
    The only one that I'm a tiny bit mixed on is Rosalind Illyria Isolde. Three gorgeous names, but to my ears, exquisite Illyria is getting lost amid all the I and L sounds. I think she might be better highlighted by a third name with slightly more bite or contrast.

    Just switching it to Rosalind Illyria Yseult gives it more bite. Or something like...

    Rosalind Illyria Dione ("DIE-uh-nee" or "Die-OH-nee") for contrast.
    Rosalind Illyria Endellion is gentler, but still gives the tongue someowhere to land.
    Rosalind Illyria Leonor (still repetitive, but more distinct. The only version of Eleanor I love. Well Lenore too I suppose.)
    Rosalind Illyria Gwenllian (bring her back!)
    Rosalind Illyria Psyche (ooh la la! And her initials would be RIPE)
    Rosalind Illyria Maud (Maud always gets a mixed reception here, but I find her so beautiful and queenly.)

    Rosalind Illyria Susilva I know I know another A-ending, but I had to mention Susilva to you. "Below the forest." Or...
    Rosalind Illyria Sylvaine
    Rosalind Illyria Mnemosyne
    Rosalind Illyria Luned
    Rosalind Illyria Clarice (a palate-cleanser)

    Mhm, I half way agree with you, Emma. There's a lot of i's in that name. And I do like Rosalind Illyria Psyche very much. Or maybe Rosalind Illyria Circe?

    Haha, yeah, I can see that being an issue. Wedding dresses, here we come!

    And no is too keen on Zenobia. I think it's so cute, and my boyfriend has lots of Cornish family, so it has a nice relation to that. Also, I have a little fantasy at the moment of having children called Foo, Roo and Zoo (Fiammetta, Rosalind/Robin & Zenobia)... I also picture a sweet little girl with blonde plaits playing peek-a-boo and climbing trees. I'm keeping it despite your feelings
    Ooh! Now I understand your love for Zenobia the imagery really helped seeing it as a little girls name. It's actually quite lovely.
    I adore your Rosalind, Fiammetta and Zenobia Beatrice combos

    Thank you! I know it's a little weird, but I like it! Zenobia Beatrice Marian.

    I've been listening to Cocteau Twins, and I thought of...

    Rosalind Illyria Phoebe (or Belphoebe for that matter)

    So Phoebe, Isolde (Yseult?), Circe, Psyche... Clio, Olwen?
