    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;

    Antonia
    Christina
    Eleni
    Katrina
    Maria
    Marianna
    Tasoula
    Alexis
    Dina (short for Costandina)
    Melina
    Dora
    Sofia

    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;

    Phoebe
    Rhea
    Selene
    Leto
    Jocasta
    Ismene
    Daphne
    Despina
    Hermione
    Electra
    Cassandra
    Demeter
    Antigone
    Leda

    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.
    Girl Names: Alice, Anna, Astrid, Beatrice, Clara, Emily, Evelyn, Hannah, Hermione, Lorna, Phoebe, Sophie, Sylvia
    Boy Names: Andrew, Arthur, Elliot, Griffin, Hamish, Henry, Leopold, Martin, Peter, Rupert, Thomas, Tobias, William
    Guilty Pleasures: Athena, Damaris, Digory, Emrys, Ganymede, Hester, Jessamine, Phineas, Myrtle, Nymeria, Nyx

    Sophie
    Victoria
