    Pseudonym/pen name

    I'm getting to the point in writing where I feel like one of these could eventually get published (or maybe I'm going crazy), either way, I don't want to use my real name. I would like the first name to be something related somehow to Elisabeth (my middle name), but not Elise. I have no clue on last names, but would like the name in general to not scream "this is not her real name!" any suggestions are helpful, thanks!

    You can also try something with similar meaning. That's what I did.

    I'm not a fan of Elsie Miller, though nothing wrong with it. Ellie Miller.. Too many L's.
    Actually with Miller as the last name, I'm thinking about Lisbeth Miller.

    Violetta Catherine Lenore. Isabelle Faustina Clare. Rosalind Anna Belphoebe
    Clementine Audrey Rowena. Helena Edelweiss. Talitha Caroline. Vanessa Rose Aphrodite

    Peregrine Lysander James. Gavriel Alexander Callum. James Luca Auberon. Caspian Frederic Levi
