Thread: A (Future) Sister for Rosalind?

One, I'd like to say I adore all your names and reading about your different ideas!
Rosalind is gorgeous, but it's very different from some of your original names, like Fiammetta. I don't think that they work all that well together, stylistically. I think that Rosalind Illyria Beatrice and _____ Fiammetta _____ would be good though, so I'll leave that as a first middle name. I also really like Matilda, could that still work as a middle? _____ ______ Matilda.
Rosalind is uncommon, but not unheard of, and I think that's a good thing in a name. Others sort of like that with the same whimsical flair:
Calista/Calixta- A little more fantastic, but very nice
Persephone- It reminds me of Penelope, but a bit more fantastic, sort of like the relationship between Rosalie and Rosalind in my mind
Tabitha- It reminds me of Matilda, which I would love for you but I remember you can't use it
Leontine- This seems perfect with Rosalind, and I love the nickname of Leonie!
Lucinda- Lucinda is one of my favorite names, I love the nicknames, and it seems very perfect with Rosalind, if not a bit similar
Hermione- Very Potteresque, but I still really like it. Did you consider it once? I feel like you might have.
Anneliese- I feel like suggesting this, but I'm not really sure about it
Delphine- It has a sort of flowing, mystical quality similar to Rosalind's
Snow- I don't think I like it as a first or middle name, but it still has a feel of sparkling droplets, sort of like Illyria
Margot- Margot and Rosalind sound like a perfect pair of Victorian sisters
Portia- I like it with Rosalind, but then I don't. It's sort of a toss up
Phoebe- I love this! I can't believe I didn't think of it earlier. I especially like the nickname Bee. Roo and Bee. Adorable!
Magdalene- It reminds me a bit of Melisande, which I like, but doesn't seem right with Rosalind.
Claudia- Similar to Margot and Rosalind, this feels very Victorian
Imogen- A bit hipster, but still a very nice, slightly fantasy name
Millicent- Millicent and Rosalind sound like they stepped right out of a fairytale!
Louisa- I like it, but it seems a bit tame compared to Rosalind
Good luck! I'm sure whatever name you choose, it will be perfect.Lily - Eliza - Isabelle - Rose - Margaret - Coraline - Emilia - Hazel
Oliver - Simon - Jasper - Theodore - Henry - Leopold - Ezra - Jack

by this point it seems like I am copying someone else but:
from your list.
Forsythia nn Thia
and something like
Jacinda Felicity Sage
Isolde Babylon Amaryllis
Renata Leona Octavia
Ginevra Forsythia Laurel
I see a Leander or Benedict in the future.
Your plans sound exhausting.

Caro, I'm obsessed with the Borgias as well!!! So much interesting stuff...
characternames; I'm actually coming around on the name Millicent! I used to loathe it, but now I see it as incredibly sweet and lovely. Imogen & Hermione are both beautiful. Snow is another one I really like... snow is my favourite thing, and the word is so cosy and comforting, but my boyfriend is not very fond of word names.
emilyva; I like Gwyneth and Ginevra very much!My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

Ooh, I missed this! My favorites from your new list:
Allegra - Love the musical, feminine vibe here
Amabel - Not something I would automatically think was your style, but I really, really like it and actually think it's great with Rosalind!
Anastasia - Regal and just beautiful
Apolline - Absolute elegance...so polished
Aurora - Kind of hard not to love this ultimate princess name.
Callista - Very pretty. I prefer Callisto for the stronger nymph connection, but do much prefer the more feminine sound of Callista. So hard!
Cicely - So dainty and feminine. I think this goes spectacularly with Rosalind
Cosima - I have strong bouts of love for this name; I could see myself using it one day
Cressida - Tough name sake, but pretty name and meaning
Eulalia - slightly prefer Eulalie, but this is a strong love of mine
Fiammetta - Simply can't get over this one - a perennial favorite.
Ginevra - Ok, this one wasn't on your final list, but I think I like it better than Genevieve (which has also recently won me over).
Hespera - So lovely when said correctly; I just worry that it won't be
Isolde - Great, strong, underused name. Like Hespera, pronunciation may be an issue
Lavinia - So, so great with Rosalind!!
Leandra - One of one of my cousin's middle names! It's great. I do prefer the male Leander though.
Leontine - May be a bit difficult for a little girl; I have trouble picturing it on a baby. However, it's gorgeous.
Melisande - Long time love; magical and beautiful.
Silvana - Not an obvious choice, but it's kind of winning me over
Zenobia - So very cute and charming, while also strong and assertive.
I think Amabel, Cicely, Cressida, Lavinia, Ginevra/Genevieve, and Zenobia go particularly well with Rosalind specifically, but they all would work fabulously.
Can I suggest your old Zephyrine as a replacement for/addition to Vespertine? It feels cleaner and a bit softer to me.
thinking - not husband tested:
Eulalie Catarina • Cecily Morgana • Beatrix Evelina • Cosima Ondine • Cordelia Eveline • Calliope Lucine
Ivo Owen Abraham • Marius Nathanael Oak • Euan Marcellus • Crispin Adair
