    I am fiercely selfishly excited to be doing this again so soon rather than enduring a three-year hiatus or some such. I just had to admit that up front

    You know what I'm going to ask: any imagery in mind for this baby? Should the name match Ditaroo's spirit or be a whole different feeling entirely? You know me, I work best from an abstract concept ^_^

    FN Loves:
    Amarantha
    Amoret
    Belphoebe
    Callisto
    Ceridwen
    Circe
    Fiammetta
    Gwenllian
    Liriope
    Lyonesse
    Melusine
    Morgana
    Niniane
    Oriana
    Selene
    Titania

    FN Likes but not Loves:
    Atalanta - didn't Mr. Otter veto this one?
    Bellicent
    Eulalia
    Euphrosyne
    Hespera
    Olympia
    Pandora
    Xenia
    Zenobia

    Veto Points - something to be sensitive about when choosing a sibling for Aphrodite...it would be really tough to have a name that is less aesthetically pleasing when your sister is named after the goddess of beauty. some of my vetoes are for those reasons.
    Boudicca - awkward after Aphrodite, despite the awesome namesake Perhaps Boadicea instead?
    Florimell - over-the-top in a flouncing ruffled beribboned princess sort of way. Especially when paired with sister Aphrodite, it just seems all fluff and no substance.
    Genoveva - Genevieve pairs better with Aphrodite
    Godiva - do they have the chocolate across the pond?? because in America, that is everyone's first thought...you're naming your daughter after chocolate.
    Hypatia - veto points for the menstrual story
    Melpomene - not going to lie, I say this name and all I hear is "My Little Pony/MLP"
    Messalina - I love you, sweets, but you can't have one daughter named Aphrodite and another whose name literally includes the word "mess." Melisandre? Melissa? Melusine?
    Polyhymnia - same as with Messalina, unfortunately. you just can't pair these two...Polyhymnia has enough teasing potential on her own
    Roxana - seems very coarse and somewhat jarring compared to your other choices.
    Tanaquil - this sounds a bit like the name of a hedgehog pokemon...perhaps her other epithet, Caia Caecilia, could lend some inspiration?

    Middles I'm splitting up into "normal" and "not normal" in order to better prep for combo making!

    Normal:
    Celeste
    Charis
    Chloe
    Daphne
    Giselle - this one is dangling over the veto list by virtue of the famous model, although the ballet is exquisite enough to save her...for the moment
    Iris
    Isis - leaving this in "normal" because she's so well known
    Lyra
    Ophelia - same as Isis
    Phoebe
    Sylvia
    Yvaine

    Not normal:
    Alcyone
    Aradia
    Arcadia
    Argante
    Bastet
    Chione
    Cissea
    Cyrene
    Eira
    Eirene
    Elbereth
    Endellion
    Eos
    Hecate
    Loveday - only you could pull this off, beautiful. It would be an ADORABLE tie to Aphrodite, given the love goddess meaning. Just don't pair her with Amoret!
    Nephele
    Noor
    Olwen
    Signe
    Sybilla
    Thalia
    Tinuviel
    Vashti
    Villanelle
    Zephyrine

    Middle Veto Points:
    Berenice - Saint Bernards
    Blodwen - does not pair well with sister's flowing liquid name
    Clemency - I struggle to get past the pardoning criminals thing
    Idony/Idunn - "I dunno"
    Lisanor - Arthur's potential mistress? I shy away from this one...
    Oenone - impossible to pronounce
    Ursaly - so obscure as to appear made up. Ursa, Ursula, or Ursuline instead? Although I wouldn't recommend Ursula for a sister of Aphrodite.

    This post is getting ridiculously long, so I'm going to work up combos in a separate one. Ciao for now!

    Oooh so many wonderful names! I'll confuse myself by fiddling with all of them at the mo so I'll just mess around with my top two favourites to go with Aphrodite-

    Zenobia Phoebe Endellion
    Zenobia Loveday Ophelia
    Zenobia Sybilla Charis
    Zenobia Endellion Yvaine
    Zenobia Ophelia Noor

    Hespera Loveday Sibylla
    Hespera Pandora Charis
    Hespera Ophelia Yvaine
    Hespera Ceridwen Iris
    Hespera Daphne Celeste

    Loving Endellion and Loveday Loveday won't be so unusual if you ever move down here. I went to school with a couple. And do you like Endelyn at all? Cornish version of Endellion which I feel is equally magical
