All the names you have listed are lovely. I especially like Cosima, Evanthe, Melisande, Sunniva and Sylvia.
I think you know I adore Apolline. I also love Chrysanthe, Maris and Noor.
How do you feel about:
Eulalia (patron saint of Merida)
Chionia (or Chione- Along with Agape, one of St. Irene's sisters. Pretty name- not so pretty story)
Coralia (Koralia, Koralou- I don't really know anything about her, except that her feast day is Sept. 1)
Odilia (patron saint of Alsace)
Augusta (for some reason, this is the first name that came to mind)
Bernadette (technically post-schism, but I think Antoine and Bernadette sound so nice together)
Malala? ( I don't really know any Arabic names, but this is so pretty and Malala Yousefzai is such a strong, smart, courageous namesake.)
Melisande Chrysanthe (3-3, I know, but they sound so nice together)
Evanthe SolenneTrying, trying, trying

And a girl version too, how lovely. Congrats one more time!
The biased part of me wants you to use Melisande, Rosamund, Sunniva or Endellion. I love them so, and I think they'd be a perfect little sister to Antoine. But Lucienne is stunning too... and Nerissa, Evanthe and Cosima and Constance. They're all beautiful, but these strikes me as the most lovely for your child. For the middles: Apolline, Chrysanthe, Eirene, Noor, Solenne... but in all honesty, please please please use Theophane! Pretty please with sugar on it? Gorgeous.
I also want to add that I L-O-V-E that you listed the names alphabetically. So much easier to read. Organized and practical and esthetically pleasing to my eyes. Thank you!

Congrats to you Blade. From your list, I like Constance and Melisande with Antoine. Judging by your list, would it be ok to list the FEMALE versions of MALE saints? I have given the French versions for some of them. I don't know if all of the names below are recognized by the Orthodox Church and some may be too feminine for you but here goes...

Just want to add my congratulations! How exciting! I particularly love Anastasia from your first name list and Cassiane (I absolutely love this name!) for the middle. Don't know if they pair so well together, as that is a lot of name.
Very much like Myriam, Evanthe, and Cosima as well.
From your middle list I also like Noor, Solenne, and Theophane.
Beautiful list you've got going there. You can't go wrong.
Off to comment on your boys thread, and again, congratulations!Mi corazón

What an excellent list. These are all fantastic. Congratulations! I second labmama's suggestion of Cosima Noor.
I'm not sure which ones are Orthodox saints' names, but had a go at some combos with my favorites from your list because they were too gorgeous to resist.
Also, I think everything on the list works really well with Antoine.Gwen
