    From the approved list I love Cassiane and Mariam/Maryam (although pronunciation might be a bit of an issue with both) From the yet to be discussed list I absolutely adore Everild and Averill. Everild Noor would be stunning! I also like Cosima and Sunniva. Theophane is interesting too, but I prefer the frillier Theophania. Good luck getting your husband to agree to the yet to be discussed list, you have some awesome names on there!

    Um....too too funny and oh so real. I like it that he has strong opinions, that they're very down-to-earth and non-name-nerdy but also that he's kinda right! I mean, I love, You're a girl, would you want to be named Irene? He's got a point!!!

    I know Days of Lives so this made me smile. I also can now pronounce Kyriake. I couldn't imagine how to pronounce Cassainne (Sorry I am not looking at the name right; not sure of spelling) and I would never have thought to pronounce it the way you do.

    good luck!

    I am Greek and while the names are beautiful it is very hard growing up with a name no one can pronounce.
    Panagia - I had to think over this one as it did not click it was Panayia (Yee-ah). It is not something one in my culture would name their child, usually a variant - such as Panayiota/Panayioda, Maria, etc
    Photini - my cousins have the last name Fotinos. I cannot imagine naming a child after a light. (Blunt way to put it)
    Thalassa - the same. It mean ocean/sea. Weird name.
    Kyriaki - I know many kyriako's (go by Jack in Australia) and the Kyriaki's I know go by nick names (Kyra, Kyri)

    Cassiane and Chrysanthe are lovely. The silent E would trump many people.

    Do not like Aquilla or Noor.


    I too will be naming my child with a name under the Eastern Orthodox Church (I am Greek Orthodox Christian) and like looking on your threads for new ideas
    I think personally, and from experience, you need to pick a name that can be pronounced easily. Cosima is my top pick from your list at the moment.

    Antoine and Mariam as a sibling set gives me goosebumps, as does Antoine and Verity.

    I also like Maris, because it reminds me of Merris, which is my new girl name crush.
