    Some combos that came to mind:

    Sawyer Faye
    Merit Cordelia
    Asher Eleanor
    Silas Maxine
    Felix Ofelia

    I like names that have assonance

    I'm rooting hard for Merit. I think it sounds so great with Rowan! Merit Ofelia is gorgeous. The -Of beginning of Ofelia really makes the -it ending of Merit shine by offering a chance for that tap consonant ('t') to be sounded. I think the Ofelia spelling is great; it feels a bit more grounded than the 'ph' version.

    Wow, I actually went out of town for a few days and couldn't check on this thread so sorry for the delay.

    @goodhope, I see what you mean about the woodsy connection, I thought it was more cute/funny than anything but I can see how it would annoy someone else.

    @ninanoo, my husband is half Navajo and he was born in Arizona but moved to New England at a very young age.

    @waverly1234, I like the idea of Marlowe but it just doesn't sound right for me.

    @sleepysessha, I think you're right about Asher, Merit, and Sawyer being my top 3. I love Silas and Felix, and I would consider them for a son if they weren't getting so darn popular for boys. I like the idea of using a name that is just starting to be considered "normal" for boys and then using it on a girl. I cringe when I meet a boy named Aiden but my pediatrician's daughter is named Ayden and it sounds fresh and new to my ears. I love Asher Ofelia, Sawyer Alys, and Merit Eleanor. They are definite possibilities.

    @jyoti, I definitely prefer Merit, due to the virtue and Ancient Egyptian connections.

    I think my "definite contenders" list is as follows...

    Asher Ofelia
    Asher Alys (alliteration okay?)
    Sawyer Alys
    Sawyer Faye
    Merit Eleanor
    Merit Cordelia
    Felix Faye

    Of course I could come across new middles between now and then, but most of those have pretty consistently lingered on my list.

    My favourites from your final contenders are Sawyer Alys and Merit Cordelia. They're both very sweet and match well with Rowan Jane.
