    Interesting List with some really different names.

    So it's a girl?

    I love Noor! It's on my own favorites list.

    I like
    Aquila
    Verity
    Mariam
    Philippa


    I also like
    Sunniva
    Cosima
    Meriel
    Maris

    I like Anastasia, but not with Antoine. It's too matchy. I think you said you want two, but if you had third what would go with Antoine and Anastasia, Andreas? Of course it's your family, but with so many names out there I think you can pick something a little more separate. I know families where the kids have matchy names and mostly the kids don't like it.

    Thanks everyone for replying. Husband's far-and-away favorite thus far is Cassiane (of the ones discussed). Anastasia we're both a bit blah on; he has a family friend named Anastasia whom no one likes, and there is the similarity to our son's name + the rising pop culture influence of the name due to the book trilogy.

    I am not Arab myself so am a little reluctant to give an Arabic name in the first slot, so I think Noor will likely be middle-name-only territory. [And Cosima Noor is out... I just keep hearing cosmic manure].

    Theophane (although I personally prefer Theophania, but that's probably too frilly for your tastes!)
    Cassiane
    Mariam
    Kyriake (Ooh, a Greek name that ends with "e" that I never heard before! I might put this on my own list of future middle possibilities... Is it pronounced Keer-ee-ah-key?)
    Aquila
    Meriel
    Noor
    Philippa

    Too bad he vetoed Helene, Nerissa, Sylvia, and Rosamond. They were all such lovely choices!
    Kyriake is indeed pronounced the way you spell it (it's often transliterated Kyriaki). I love the idea of Theophania but just can't do 5 syllables.

    Kyriake is a name? A first name? For women? All I can think of is Victor Kiriakis from Days of our Lives.

    From what you have so far, I really like Cassiane, I have since the first time it was introduced on Nameberry.
    I have just had problems deciding on which spelling looks the best, at times.

    I even think Cassiane Noor, sounds lovely, but I am not that great at combo's, so you might want to ignore it.

    From this list, I also like: Chrysanthe, Cosima, and Sunniva (mostly in the middle). Was Melisande, vetoed?
