Cosima is sneaking up on me, I must say. In church lore Cosmas & Damian were "unmercenary physicians," meaning they refused to accept payment for their services, and they also supposedly performed the first transplant (a leg) with nary an anti-rejection immunosuppresant drug regime in sight . I like to try to find some connection to my own life-- Antoine's middle name, Raphael, had a lot of multi-layered significance, and I'd like to duplicate that if possible. Given that I'm on a transplant research fellowship it seems apropos, in addition to being a gorgeous name.XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)

Combos are definitely not my strength, but you have such a lovely list going, I'll give it a try...
Cosima Noor (although I must say, since you live in LA, if you say it fast it sounds like you're saying "cosa" which is Spanish for "thing". It's a lovely name, but LA has a lot of Spanish speakers. This may or may not bother you...)
Anastasia Claire. But I hear you on knowing someone with the name, but I love it so!
Kyrielle Solenne Swoon. I hope I'm saying it right, because that just sounds like a dream
Myriam Theophane- I very much love Myriam. She sounds like Antoine's sister to me.
Sylvia Cassiane. I adore Cassiane and all her spellings and Sylvia is vintage and grounds Cassiane somehow
Nerissa Sylvaine- something mysterious about this one
Rosamund Chrysanthe - I like this one. But maybe it over powers Antoine Raphael?TTC #1

Blade, Cosima is now my favourite. It is perfect! (I know this probably won't mean much to you, but in Norwegian there's a word "kos" that means cosiness, and that's what Cosima sounds like to me. Someone wrapped in warm blankets drinking hot chocolate and listening to old Sinatra records.)
I also love Kyrielle. Oh, I love them all. Can't you just stop doctoring and have fifteen kids instead???
Cosima Chrysanthe, Cosima Sylvaine. Cosima Melisande.
Solenne and Swoon, but I kind of like this double middle option!My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

More loveliness over here!
Regarding your current list, my favorites are Anastasia, Aristea, Cosima, Endellion, Evanthe, Rosamond & Sunniva. The only one I would pitch altogether is Sylvia, because it seems way too obvious a follow-up to the Sophia craze. I want to love Aquila, but it's Biblically masculine, and even though it sounds feminine, I can't get over it. I do love Aquilo for a modern boy, but I guess I ought to have thought of that on the other thread. Everild sounds quite similar to emerald, so that will probably be a lot of correcting over the years if you pick that one. Kyrielle is pretty though likely to be taken as an invented nouveau name.
On your middle name list, I noticed that Ambrose and Ambrosine made both lists, so maybe that's a meaningful one for you? Also noticed Theophilus/Theophane. Sylvaine is over here, which without going and researching, I presume is related to Syliva. I like it better. Stylistically, I like Chrysanthe the best, and Noor is almost too much to pass up, but any of these would be pretty to bestow on a little Bladette.
