For what it's worth I still sometimes question whether Gemma is right for my daughter. Sometimes I feel maybe it's just her middle name Hermione that doesn't feel right. That part is truly ironic since I was so freaking adamant that Hermione be in the name. I've tried to consider a different middle name, but so far nothing. Sometimes I just think Genevieve would've been the better choice. I loved your Illyria so much that if I ever do decide to switch her name to Genevieve I would likely use Illyria as the middle. Genevieve Illyria, it's all the romance I love that Hermione seems to fall short of.
However, I also consider that maybe it could be just that I love so many names still and she is my last child. I knew it would be hard. It wouldn't be a decision I made lightly. That's how I'm sure you're not making your decision lightly either. I don't have any suggestions, but I wanted to comment to simply to support you and let you know that you can love your child's name and still regret it all at the same time.Married mother of 4 (plus one angel in heaven) thinking about TTC in 2 or 3 years

Ottilie (and Roo), congrats on deciding ! Aphrodite is so gorgeous, stunning, dramatic, and magical... It was the one I'd been hoping Roo had chosen. I definitely think you should keep Illyria. I'm in the middle of reading Twelfth Night and loving it, so while I would never even have thought of using Illyria as a name, I love the idea. Also, I'm not a Tabitha fan. Aphrodite Illyria Wren is lovely; I also love PPs' suggestions of Aphrodite Illyria Maris and Aphrodite Illyria Sargasso.
And Emma, amazing poem!
Okay, I'm getting a little too excited here... I have the tendency to do that, especially when it comes to names...

Emms!! Your poem is BREATHTAKING! I've never even met Roo and I got emotional on her behalf. I officially plan to commission you for each of my future children. You could make a living
Otteroo, I'll be back later with suggestions for middles, but my current favorites are Aphrodite Illyria Wren, Aphrodite Illyria Willow, and Aphrodite Charis Illyria. I do love the idea of keeping Illyria in the mix to tie in to her original name. It was always the most magical of the three, and a favorite from the very beginning.
Overflowing with love for the new name,

Congrats on choosing her first name! Obviously, it's your choice, but I hope you keep Illyria in the middle! It's such a beautiful name. I also like Aphrodite Illyria Wren; I don't think Wren is too plan to go along with the other two names. Good luck with the rest of her name. I can't wait to have children and name them, but I'm also a little scared, especially if I end up with name regret! I'll definitely be enlisting the berries' help whenever the time comes for me.Girls: Cordelia, Phoebe, Rose
