    Amaury Adelin Charles

    Amaury William Inigo
    Amaury Felix Fyodor
    Archibald Hugo Theodosius
    Archibald Hugo Fyodor
    Archibald Henry Alexander

    As lovely as Mithandir sounds, its LOTRness makes it a true GP imo.
    And Illyrio... I haven’t seen Game of Thrones, so I don’t have the association. Just sounds like a masculinized Illyria to me. There’s Ilario, which is an Italian form of the Ancient Roman Hilarius. Might be slightly more useable because it’s got some history.

    Amaury Malik Ilario

    Anna Ingrid Alexandra is very royal! It’s sad to bury beautiful Ingrid in the middle, though I admit the flow is fantastic. Would you consider doing a compound name, “Anna Ingrid”?

    Matilda Olga Marina has too many A-endings for my ear. The star of this combination is Olga, imo. Such a beautiful, stern, deep name.

    Visenya would be great with Olga, but I wish it had history beyond The Game of Thrones. Drat! What a cool slinky sound.
    Instead of Visenya:
    Olga Verusha Myrrine
    Olga Victoria Maris
    Olga Ksenia Maren
    Olga Marina Bjørk

    Olga Marina Mathilde (“mah-TEELD”)
    Olga Marina Maude

    And Dagmar. I’m mad mad mad about Dagmar. I was seriously thinking I’d name a daughter Dagmar, but decided it was too random for an American kid. Please use it.

    Dagmar Xenia Alexandra (Double X! Vulgar? Perhaps, but I like it.)
    Dagmar Embla Vilhelmine
    Dagmar Matilda Pipaluk
    Dagmar Ingrid Maude

    Oh your names make me so happy!
    Ah, I'm so glad you like them, and obviously I don't mind at all

    I absolutely adore Amaury Adelin Charles, Amaury Felix Fyodor, Archibald Hugo Fyodor and Archibald Henry Alexander. I'm especially intrigued by pairing Amaury with Adelin because I've looked for a way out of the whole 'William Adelin' thing (it's such a lovely combination, however, William Adelin (Henry I of England's son) apparently was spoiled rotten and that's pretty much all that is known about him, so I don't know how good a namesake he is).

    Actually, Illyrio is not so much a ASOIAF reference (because Illyrio Mopatis isn't that great a namesake) as it is an appreciation of the name and the sound of the name. Mithrandir is very much a gp name, but having been an appreciator of LOTR from a young age, I actually could see myself using it (just have to find the right combo, which is pretty hard because what goes with Mithrandir).

    I'm one of those odd people who actually is contemplating naming a daughter Anna Ingrid Alexandra and then just calling her Ingrid. I just love how the name flows (and I also feel less of a plagiarist putting Anna in front of Ingrid Alexandra (curse you Norwegian Crown Princely family, curse you!)). Anna Ingrid - perhaps hyphenated even - sounds lovely though

    My initial combination was Maude Olga Marina, but I swapped it with Matilda because it would add another namesake (Empress Matilda, who I seem to have developed a historical crush on). And I agree that Olga is a pearl, it's really a shame that it's so hated. I love Olga Victoria Maris, Olga Marina Bjørk and Olga Marina Mathilde (Mathilde is such a lovely name, though extremely popular here in Denmark).

    Dagmar really is a wonderful name, very strong and beautiful. Dagmar Xenia Alexandra is a wonderful combination (and the double x isn't vulgar at all) and actually is has such strong links in history. Maria Feodorovna (wife of Tsar Alexander III) was a Danish Princess whose real name was Dagmar (or Marie, but she went by Dagmar). Dagmar's daughter was named Xenia and her sister was named Alexandra (as in Alexandra of Denmark, Queen of the United Kingdom). I also love Dagmar Matilda Pipaluk.

    Your combinations are so lovely, thank you for taking your time to make them

    All my top usables are in my sig. And a GP name for me is basically anything that's not on my top lists! I love way too many names. My style is classic/biblical/plain, nevertheless there are a lot of other names that I find gorgeous but couldn't ever use. Unless I have 100 children. They just get squirrelled away in a filing cabinet in my head and are occasionally taken out and admired.

    So as my GPs encompass most other normal names, I'll give ye a few of the more out there ones:

    Appelin - delicious
    Bawden, Hender, Jenken & Rowlyn - break my 'no surnames as first names' rule
    Herschel - always wondered why this reminded me of chocolate. I've only just remembered the American chocolate bar :/
    Leoffalan - a mediaeval smoosh. But a cool one.
    Locryn & Guenedoc - a couple of magical dudes
    Mawgan - I would be accused of making Morgan kre8tiv
    Sigvard - name of a Swedish prince who, when a young lad, was the cutest little boy. Ever.
    Vortigern - Name of an old warlord. He's so snazzy. Like Voldemort's younger and trendier brother.
    William ♠ Thomas ♠ Peter ♠ Henry ~ Rose ♠ Alice ♠ Ivy ♠ Lowenna
    Mowesi ~ Henwyn Kernewek ~ Mebyon
