    Fairy Tale Names?

    Can any of you think of names that would fit in a fairytale? I have a few, some from fairytales, most names I think would fit, but I'm curious about your thoughts and ideas.

    girl:

    Brier-Rose (Sleeping Beauty)
    Rapunzel
    Ember (my favorite Cinderella variant)
    Ashka
    Marion (Robin Hood)
    Juniper (The Juniper Tree)
    Snow
    Apple
    Evangeline
    Gwendolyne
    Emmeline
    Jessamine
    Aleksandra
    Miriam
    Millicent
    Lucretia
    Mairwen
    Lavinia
    Oriana

    boy:

    Tremayne (my personal Prince Charming name)
    Kevion
    Robin (Robin Hood)
    Lorence
    Aleksander
    Ambrose
    Bartholomew
    Arronax
    Thaddeus
    Evander
    Winslow
    Westley (the Princess Bride)
    Gaston (Beauty and the Beast)

    I'm a bit short on boy names. Opinions? Sugestions?
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I think anything Welsh or Celtic sounding would fit in a fairytale, or anything romantic/heroic sounding.

    I think Evangeline, Emmeline, Jessamine, and Gwendolyn sound very fairytale-ish

    I like Alexander and Evander for the boy.

    Suggestions:
    Isolde
    Aurora
    Catriona
    Morgan/Morgaine
    Maeve
    Elowen
    Rhiannon
    Calista
    Cassia
    Bronwen
    Madeleine
    Eve
    Alis
    Genevieve
    Amaryllis
    Freya
    Adeline
    Ever
    Ivy

    Maxwell/Maxen
    Rhys
    Tristan
    Steffan/Stephan
    Phillip
    Lysander
    Owen
    Ronan
    Draco
    Flynn
    Caspian
    Fabian
    Gideon
    Leon
    Luca
    Stellan

    Gwendolyn sounds fairytale-ish? Really? That makes me irrationally happy. It's my name, so I have trouble...seeing it from the outside, for lack of a better phrase.

    I have a lesser-known fairy tale names list. Things like Talia, Elise/Eliza, Vasilisa.

    I heard the song "Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight" the other day and it made me completely reevaluate Isabel. It never had a fairy tale vibe before, but it totally does now.
