    I like Aurelia Nimue best for selfish reasons, Nimue is one of my favourites as well. I like that there's a connection between Nimue and Ophelia, I love the paintings by Edward Burne-Jones and Frank Cadogan Cowper. However, if you'll choose Nimue because of the paintings, you should know Pre-Raphaelite master Dante Gabriel Rossetti has a painting of her.

    Thanks Ottilie! I love it too! I am most familiar with the Burne-Jones painting, but I couldn't find the Rossetti one (whose work I also love...), did you happen to know the name of it?

    I meant the painting was of Aurelia, which is the first name anyway... apparently didn't express myself very well! It's called Aurelia (Fazio's Mistress). Link HERE.
