A (Future) Sister for Rosalind?
I looked over the names we considered for Rosalind a few days ago, and while I still love some of them, a lot of them have lost their luster. Which makes me a little sad... Now, I'm not going to have baby 2 in a while (we're planning on waiting till Roo is nine months to start that process), but I thought I'd pick your brains before mine gets too full of christening gowns, wedding gowns and then those pregnancy hormones again... And I like to have a sweet little list to look at (don't we all?). The names on my list are:
Rosalba (I know this is too close to Rosalind)
I have started liking a few names I used to dislike, such as Serafina and Cordelia (but as much as I like this I can't use it because of that darn Shakespeare woman).
Do anyone have any smashing suggestions? What would you name Rosalind Illyria Beatrice's little sister? As usual I like names with historical, literary, mythological references... or some beautiful artwork to it's name.
This is mostly just for fun though![FONT=Palatino Linotype][CENTER]My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014[/CENTER][/FONT]

I will think about this for a bit. On a different note, I can still remember reading about your daughters birth and randomly thinking that it would be a good name for a sister Astrid. I know, I know I kinda jumped away from what you just said, but thats what I thought would be cute at that moment

My overall favorite from your list is Ceridwen, and my favorite with Rosalind is Zenobia. If I could pick anything at all, though, I'd definitely choose Hypatia. Zosime/Zosima, Iphigenia, Ignatia, Sibyl/Sybil/Sibylla/Sybilla, Isaure/Isaura, Valencia, Tullia, Hero, Olympia, Cosima/Cosmina, Cyra, Dorothea (or Theodora/any Theo-beginning name), Elspeth, Melusine, Eulalie/Eulalia, Aurelia, Perpetua, Fortunata, Illuminata, and Claudia would also be cool to see used as a first or middle name.
Eh, I'll try some combos, because why not:
Hypatia Sibyl Eulalie.
Cyra Zosime Illuminata
Dorothea Elspeth Zenobia
Melusine Valencia Hero

Rosalind Illyria Beatrice is lovely--it feels a bit gothic, romantic, and whimsical.
Following that I'd name her:
Leontine Viola Constance
Millicent Fleur Leonie
Melisande Iris Callista
Ceridwen Astrid Valentine
Althea Morgana Sabine
Blodeuwedd Ophelia Magdelene
Titania Faye Penelope
Sabine Helena Faerydae
Well, that was fun!
