    Octavia is my pick, both because it's my favorite of the four and because you said it's the best compromise name.

    I like Ottoline better than Ottilia. Catherine Ottoline is pretty.
    I know a Catherine Avalon.
    If you want an O name, you can spell Aurelia with an O. I know an Odette Orelie. She put the e with the accent in it cuz she didn't like the oral part of Oralie. Hey - What about Catherine Odette?
    Catherine Avalon was actually on one of our previous lists!

    Huh, I never thought about spelling Aurelia with an "O". Catherine Orelia -- that does look rather nice. I'll see what hubby thinks when he gets home. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Odette is cute, but not really my style.

    I like Ophelia and Octavia almost evenly. Ophelia is a softer name and Octavia crisper, so from a pure phonetcs perspective I'd favor Octavia. It's almost more regal, unusual and striking. But the meaning isn't much...

    Catherine Ophelia is gorgeous. I love Catherine with a C, and putting Ophelia in the middle spot makes it more usable without the negative Shakespeare connotations. Catherina Aurelia is also lovely.
