Aww yay, he talked names! For what it's worth I think he has a pretty good list going here. My favorite is also Cassiane. =]
*Cassiane- beautiful, exotic, glamourous, crystal clear sounds of perfection. I love this name and I love it with Antoine!
Chrysanthe- I remember this being a favorite of yours, but based on spelling I might like it best in the middle
*Noor- Love this, it's gorgeous, especially as a middle to spice up almost any combo (except Cosima, haha. Fingers crossed for that one though)
Verity- I adore the sound of this name, it has a great meaning, but I feel like you can do better than a virtue name for little Ant-sis
Anastasia- I always like this name when I see it, but for some reason no one ever seems to actually use it? I think it's more rare than it sounds
Philippa- I like it. Seems maybe a little safe, but it's a fine name and I think Antoine and Pippa would be pretty adorable
Aquila- I honestly think I prefer the "close to tequila" pronunciation of this one, but either way it doesn't seem to mesh well with Antoine imo
Mariam- Your pronunciation is gorgeous, but I worry about the general public. I can't help but think "are ya gonna marry 'em or what?" Prefer Marian
Photini- Yep, if a photon and a martini had a baby. It sounds awesome, but I don't think it works well in America. Though you are in Cali... haha
Panagia- Is this said more like Pana-yah? I have a friend with a Gia- starting Greek last name so I prefer that, but written it looks like 'pelagic' to me
Kyriake- Karaoke. I agree with trying to sell him on Kyrielle instead
Thalassa- Molasses. The meaning is pretty, but I just can't get over the sound similaritiesDominic James~ (Felicity : Julia : Rowena : Gabriel : Jude)

Cassiane is gorgeous, as is your pronunciation. I am not a huge fan of Cassie as a nn, though. Avoiding a nn is always possible, but may take effort. And that's assuming you do not like Cassie, which you may not have an issue with..?
I love Chysanthe so very much.
Too bad Cosima was vetoed, however, cosmic manure made me truly laugh out loud. Definitely, "no way" to Cosima Noor!Mama to

I love all of your names, of course Excellent choices!
Adding to what Liana said, one thing leaped out at me: Panagia is the actual honorific given to the Virgin Mary, not the female name honoring the Virgin Mary (which would be Panagiota). Naming your daughter "Panagia" would be akin to naming your daughter "Virgin Mary" or "God". Please don't!
I love Chrysanthe! What do you think about Marianthe? Are you open to other -anthe names? It's one of my favorite Greek name roots.
I saw Pelagia somewhere - totally gorgeous! It's actually my alternate middle for my daughter. From a Greek speaking perspective, I like Pelagia better than Thalassa - to me, Pelagia is a name and Thalassa is a noun.
Anastasia is one of my favorite names ever, but maybe too matchy with Antoine?
Can I suggest Arete?

I agree a hundred times about the Thalassa/Pelagia debate. I don't like Thalassa much but was really gobsmacked he suggested it (there *were* people named Thalassa, even though it's an everyday word). And I suggested Panagiota but he said no, Panagia. So I'm glad he's wrong. And Photini is a little too cutesy for me.
@milasmama too bad about Aquila being a cheap wine. It hasn't hit these shores, luckily.
Cassiane is getting a lot of love, which is exciting.XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
