Round 2. Same as with the boys
Bellicent - Oooh, kind of like a whisper. Keep because it fits in well. Bellicent is magical and dainty.
Belphoebe - Really like next to Aphrodite! The 'ph' sounds are clean and separate enough for me! And two 'ph' names would be a lovely connection for gals born so close together. Belphoebe is big, bright and bubbly!
Ceridwen - Lovely lovely lovely. Like Romulus in the boys- it's different from Aphrodite but works so well. Ceridwen is woodland rainfall.
Circe - Despite looking small next to big sis Aphrodite, she's all 'Look here, Dita, move over! I'm just as strong and magic and beautiful as you'. Yes. I like her. Circe is sassy.
Cleopatra - You know, I can actually see it working with Aphrodite. It's not my favourite, but it works. Cleopatra is milk.
Gwenllian - ditto Ceridwen. These are some kick ass Welsh names! Gwenllian is mysterious damp forests.
Hermione - Love her with Aphrodite. They totally compliment each other. Also has the same feel as Algernon- aristocratic chic. And I know you'll associate her with mythology but Hermione, to me, is still the heroine of HP who didn't take sh!t from anyone. Hermione is brave and loyal.
Morgana - ditto the Welsh girls- different but good. Morgana is dark, stormy seas.
Musidora - I quite like. She does fit well. Musidora is white cotton and babies.
Serafina - More Fs with Aphrodite but I reckon they go well together. Serafina is fire.
Sunniva - Like. It's a little mismatched with Aphrodite but I won't shelve it. Sunniva is sunshine!
Tinuviel - Yes, she works well. I love the mystical-ness of her. Very dark and interesting. Someone somewhere else once commented that it reminded them of Cornwall. I agree, but can't pinpoint why. Tinuviel is sea shells.
Zenobia - Love it next to Roo! And in mediaeval England, Zenobia named a Cornishwoman. For some reason it was massively popular here, so there's a tenuous Cornish link for you! Zenobia is citrus fresh.
Atalanta - American. I know it's not spelt the same, but I think of Atlanta. So many As and Ts and I just don't think it sits right with Aphrodite.
Befana - Kind of alluring, mostly baffling. A lot of 'f' with Aphrodite.
Bradamante - I can see the charm, but... Adam Ant. PRINCE CHARMING! Hehe
Hypatia - Hyper impatient. I just don't like her with Roo's name.
Isolde - Cold and clunky.
Jezebel - But I thought you didn't like anything biblical because you're not Christian? Anyhow, I don't think she's right with Aphrodite. And the beginning is a little too close to 'jis' :/
Lyonesse - She'd make such a fantastic middle and I love the story (you can still hear the Lyonesse bells ringing on a stormy night!) but I still think of the female animal.
Lysistrata - Yes, a little too out there unfortunately. Can't imagine a little one trying to say or write this!
Ourania - Is it just a terrible idea? Maybe just a bit. You have much more beautiful names on your list!
Nimue - Another one for the middles. She's too soft and squidgy and demure next to Aphrodite.
Olympia - Perhaps it's too much, but I personally don't think it's very attractive, possibly because of the 'limp' in it.
Pandeia/Pandia - I think I preferred Pandora.
Xenia - Very different from Aphrodite in my eyes. And I have a bad pop association with Xenia.
Aaaaand my favourite little sisters for Roo would be Belphoebe, Ceridwen, Gwenllian, Hermione and Zenobia. 5 more babies please

Fabulous list! Morgana Phoebe Olwen was my first thought, but I also love the idea of Zenobia Phoebe Olwen. Aphrodite and Zenobia? What an awesome pair!
My suggestions: Cliona (or its original mythological spelling, Cliodhna), Rhiannon, Bellona, Ceres, Pyrrha, Elpis (the personification of hope- the last spirit to remain in the jar after it was opened by Pandora) and Terpsichore.

Our styles are totally different, but I can't help loving Aphrodite. Off of your list, I really love Hermoine with Aphrodite. It's strong and brave, and the sounds are complimentary without being super similar.
And even though you aren't looking for combos, I couldn't help but swooning at Hermione Eowyn Sybilla.-Athena
Top Girls: Dorothea Juliet, Beatrix Hermione, Esther Honoria, Sybil Poet, Rosalind Irina, Jane Fiammetta, Flora Catherine, Edith Mariposa, Clara Valentine, Araminta Jane
Top Boys: Frederick Archer, Darwin Elliot, Crispin Avery, Alistair Henry, Leopold Darcy, Benedict Maxwell, Victor Cyril, Edmund Atlas, Cyrus Maximilian, Barnaby Oswald

Belphoebe - I love this name, but H is hesitant because it's a "soft" name (ph-sound). We haven't ruled it out completely though, as I am so in love with it. Beautiful amazing girl in The Faerie Queene who hid/lived in the forest...
Circe - One of my favourite names ever, maybe my favourite character in Greek mythology. Odysseus described her as "the loveliest of all immortals" which I think can hold up well to Roo's name.
Gwenllian - Amazing Welsh princess who led her people in battle.
Isolde - I love this name, and she's got the beauty thing Aphrodite's got. My only thing is... she was beautiful, but what else?
Nimue - After much ado, we decided Niniane might be a minefield. So Nimue it is. Lady of the lake, guardian of the sword and it's cute as a button.
Serafina - Husband's suggestion. I like the meaning, and the witch in Northern Lights is cool.
Sunniva - Would be a way to incorporate my Norwegian blood. But I know some little Sunniva's... not direct friends, but still.
Isana (ih SAW nuh)
Sirenee (sear renee) << like Cyrene?
Merida << I know this is a Disney princess but she is strong and brave and independent and it was actually the first name that came to mind when I saw that your other daughter is Aphrodite
Esmeralda << see Merida but I love the nickname Esme
Acadia nn Cadie << close to Aradia
Marieken (muh REE kin)
