Again, congrats! Here's my favorites with Aphrodite (will make combos when you're ready):
Belphoebe -- I adored this name last time and still do. I think it works wonderfully with Aphrodite
Cleopatra -- Two strong women who weren't defined by men. I know a Cleopatra and I think it's stunning and works really well with Aphrodite
Gwenllian -- Never heard it but love it! It sounds lovely with Aphrodite and love the history
Lyonesse - I think it sounds really cool, it's got the Arthurian thing going on.
Morgana -- One of my favorite names I'm not using. Love it a lot with Aphrodite
Sunniva -- Love the name and I don't think it matters you know some if they aren't friends. Sunny as a nickname just seems perfect next to Aphrodite for some reason
Tinuviel -- My favorite on the list with Aphrodite. Stunning name, stunning story, stunning sound
I'm going to try to think of other Norse names for you to help with your side of things. And I'm going to suggest again...Rohana. Aphrodite and Rohana. I know they share that RO sound sort of, but I think Rohana is stunning and perfect for you, plus it sounds lovely with Aphrodite.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
Started my NaNoWriMo novel - Kith nor Kin -- read it here if you'd like and feel free to comment -- http://kithnorkin.wordpress.com/ Chapter 19 is up -- Warning! It's pretty gruesome.

First I just want to say, I LOVE the name Aphrodite and I think it's fantastic that you were bold enough to use it.
Anyways, I think another bold choice is the best route to go, something that really pops. From your list my favorites with Aphrodite are...
Cleopatra... Love the historical reference and love that it is also very bold
Serafina... Stunning name, it also has a nice history behind it
Atlantis... I think this could be a really pretty choice and it has a cool mythological reference without being Greek
Calypso... Also Greek, another strong female character, heroes often washed up on her shore and she nursed them, although sometimes it is said that she held them as prisoners to keep her company on her lonely island of Ogygia.
Calliope... Another Greek choice, she was one of the nine muses, she bore many children in mythology including OrpheusMy Eclectic Little List:

Favorites this time around:
I absolutely love Hermione--it was on my list for a while! I think Hermione and Aphrodite go well together. There is the Harry Potter thing which other people have brought up. Personally, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and wouldn't feel comfortable naming my child a "Harry Potter name" because of that--I know my friends/relatives would leap to conclusions and think I'd gone overboard in my fangirling. However, if you're surrounded by people who wouldn't judge or if you don't care about the association, I think Hermione's the best fit!Writer. Name lover. Dreamer.
