Oooh, responses!!! I'll try and get back to each of you. Sorry if this is long.
joviejane: I do like Astrid very much, but I'm half Norwegian and I'd like it to be pronounced the Norwegian way which people in the U.K. won't get. Having grown up with a name that's pronounced very differently in E & N, I don't want to out a child through that!
egilona: Hypatia is so cool! It's always been almost-on-the-list. Tullia is beautiful, it's been floating around in my mind since I saw it on Flick's list a while back. Cosima, Hero, Eulalia have been on the list, but thank you for bringing them back again!
krismichelle: Griselda is pretty, but one of those names I can't use because of my Norwegian side. Gris = Pig. Alcyone though... I love this name so much! Had almost forgotten about it.
teagarden: Thank you! Gothic, love that! Leontine Viola Constance is right up my alley, either you've peeked at my former threads or you simply just get me! I also love Melisande Iris Callista, so pretty.
Dina Miss Dindle: I know how you feel... and Zenobia's even more lovely to me after you told me about you student! I love the names in your signature too, sweetie!
Alzora: Yay! I love Roxana with Rosalind too, I love the sisterly bond I love Allegra, why did I forget about that one? Amabelle, Aravis, Melora, Pollyanna and Mira-Louise: Swoon! Mazelina and Amelot are gorgeous too! Thanks sweetie!
Ballerina: I like Serafina a lot too. Natasha doesn't seem chav to me (although I know it does for others), I've known two and they were both great! And then there's War and Peace and the late Natasha Richardson. I love Lucretia/Lucrezia, Celestina, Callista, Calliope and Iris!
boy&girl: Thank you, I love Melisande as well!
Zelia: I love Juno and Saga, both so gorgeous. I'd love to use a Norse (or Scandinavian) name for my second child as we didn't with Rosalind. Hespera is at the top on my middle name list! Thank you so much!
Awesomecactus: Ophelia is on the middle name list, and I do like Amaryllis, so pretty!
teagardens (again!): Love that list! Boyfriend is not going to let me use Persephone, but I'll add Apolline, Amaranthe, Ariadne, Cassandra, Astraea, Livia, Penelope, Phoebe, Imogen, Esmeralda and Helena. Daphne was actually a top contender for Rosalind!
dani: Cicely, Clio, Lavinia and Isolde are lovely!
Sarah: Armand or Leopold! Or Orlando? Gawain, Tresillian... I have a kind of thread in the boy section, don't you worry.
misshoppy: I love Artemisisa, stunning!
Leona: I love Danae and Lucia, thank you! (and welcome back!)
Flick: I know, so sad... I was thinking about Fioralba but something seems off. Fiammetta is a constant, I'm just worried about re-using the name... but that's just silly I guess.
Crunchy: Tabitha! Tamar! Jemima and Gwendolen! Thanks, those are great.
Lizzard: I know Cordelia's a good person, but she's stupid and annoying. Every time I see the play I want to leap on stage and shake her! Just tell your father you love him best of all and everything will turn out great! Silly girl... I want my children to be named after smart people. I do like Anastasia and Alessandra from your list!
Lex: Yeah, I want a winter baby too! Ceridwen Elvira Alcyone would be beautiful. (Elvira is normal enough for me, plus would honour family!) Zenobia Natasha Ophelia is gorgeous! Thanks my darling.
jamee: Josephine is lovely, I didn't ever think of this as a first name. Beautiful, and has musical, historical and literary references I love.
RGE: I know, I know. But I'm 30 and we want more children so the plan (for now) is second child before I'm 32 and then wait four-ish years and have the next two when I'm 36 and 38. ( And if we want a fifth, when I'm 40-42.)
Alexa: Whoa! Aurora, Ceres, Athena, Selina, Constance, Luciana, Hermione, Perdita, Miranda, Selene and Evadne... Thanks!
Irmy: Thank you! I love Melusine and the folklore, but boyfriend is opposed. Also, with Melisande I get the opera connection (Pelleas and Melisande) and one of my most recent book-loves (Melisande! What are Dreams?). I do love your suggestions, Delphine, Christabel, Estrella, Violetta, Leontine, Vesper, Victorine, Lucrezia... so many good ones!
c@29: I love Audrey, but it's too difficult in Norwegian and Italian. So pretty though! Viola will go on my list.
Thanks again everyone!My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

I think Ceridwen is my favourite from your list. It's so pretty.
I would love to have a little Rosamund someday so I think some of the names I have on my list that could be sisters of a Rosamund could also potenially be sisters of a Rosalind:
I wouldn't be surprised if most of these have been suggested before, but here you go anyway.
