I grew up in a predominantly Greek area of the UK, and these were some of the names of the Greek girls I went to school with;
Dina (short for Costandina)
I have no idea how these names would sound in Greece, but I don’t remember any of my classmates batting an eyelid in England. Then again it was a very diverse school, so your mileage may vary.
From your list it looks like you favour older names with a mythological connection, so how about;
Personally I think a lot of Greek names are beautiful and perfectly useable in English speaking countries, so if you fall in love a name that reflects your heritage, I say go for it.Girls: Alice, Anna, Astrid, Beatrice, Clara, Elodie, Emily, Evelyn, Hannah, Hermione, Lorna, Phoebe, Sophie, Sylvia
Boys: Andrew, Arthur, Elliot, Griffin, Hamish, Henry, Leopold, Martin, Peter, Robin, Rupert, Thomas, Tobias, William
Guilty Pleasures: Athena, Damaris, Digory, Emrys, Ganymede, Hester, Jessamine, Phineas, Myrtle, Nymeria, Nyx
