    In order:
    Ceridwen - This is by far my favorite with Rosalind and if we assume you get pregnant again when Roo is about 10-11 months old (fingers crossed) then she'd be that beautiful winter-fairy you mentioned a few months ago. Ceridwen Ophelia Alcyon though I'm sure your BF/FI would prefer a "normal" name in there so Ceridwen Fiammetta Isobel or Cerdiwen Elvira Alcyon. (Does Elvira count as "normal"?)
    Zenobia - Second choice. Roo and a summer Zenobia would be brilliant. Zenobia Atlanta Matilda (I know your friend already has one but does that mean it's out as a mn?) or Zenobia Natasha Ophelia would be beautiful.
    Fiammetta - I still love this and think it's stunning but is it too frilly in comparison to Rosalind? (Does it make Rosalind feel less girly?) I think this could make a brilliant mn to counter Illyria.
    Endora & Lorelei

    9 months? Whew... you have more lady cojones than me. Rowan is 18 months and some days I think this summer might be too early to start TTC... she is going through a "throws a tantrum over everything" phase and it's wearing me out.

    I definitely like Fiammetta the best from your list, followed by Zenobia.

    May I just say that I love your daughters name and all of your contributions to nameberry.

    From your list, I love Fiammetta the most.

    What about Melusine/Melusina, the french version of Melisande? There's a Luxembourgish fairytale surrounding Melusine in which she's half human and half serpent and marries a king. She curses a city and... I think it'd be better if you looked it up. I'm bad at explaining it. Melusine, unbenownst to almost all, is the starbucks insignia. The imagery I think of when I hear Melusine is stunning.

    Melisande may also be slightly too close because of the shared nd ending/3 syllables with Rosalind.

    Some suggestions:
    Alys (traditional version of Alice; perhaps as a middle)
    Aloma
    Bryony
    Celestine
    Christabel
    Claribel
    Claudette
    Delphine
    Desiree
    Eirlys
    Estrella
    Hermia
    Imogen
    Iris
    Leonora
    Leontine
    Loveday (given to boys and girls in the past born on loveday)
    Lucrezia
    Mirabelle
    Oleta
    Sylvie
    Vesper
    Victorine
    Violetta

    Melusine Iris Violetta
