    We have our top names. Now for combos!

    Hello again, everyone! My husband and I have chosen 3 names from our overall list for the first name of our possible daughter.

    The names we have are:
    Alethea
    Persephone (we had this as a middle name but we're liking it more as a first right now)
    Cosima

    Our middle name list is (long!):
    Mariposa (also as a middle)
    Persephone
    Bird
    Rosalind
    Reverie
    Hespera
    Apolline
    Beatrice (also Beatrix)
    Seraphina
    Hero
    Delphine
    Willow
    Phaedra
    Alba (& Albia)
    Juno
    Avita
    Valentina
    Mietta
    Clementine
    Penna
    Milena
    Iona
    Leda

    Some combos we came up with are Persephone Hespera Juno, Alethea Reverie Leda & Cosima Persephone Hero but none really stand out. We suck at flow.

    So, can you come up with some combos using out lists?

    Thanks!

    PS: Our son (who was still born) is called Ignatius Evander Piet (peet)

    Do you want 2 middle names?
    I like the sound of Althea Delphine & Althea Rosalind.

    Wow! Most of your name choices have at least 6 syllables in them before you get to the second middle name. It would be great to know how many syllables are in your last name as well as it's first initial of that surname. It would be great to not have initials spell anything (Alethea Reverie Leda Owen - ARLO?). Despite the longer syllable names, it may be best to vary the syllable count among the middle names. A 3-3-3-? sounds a bit monotone no matter how lovely.

    With regard to what I personally feel is best, I'm definitely on board with Cosima as my favorite. Persephone is a bit too known perhaps. Whatever you do, I'm definitely feeling your stylistic choices.

    Oh, yes! We do want two middle names, I forgot to mention!

    basicsand -We were finding it difficult to make combos, probably because our name choices are quite long..Our surname is 2 syllables and starts with a D, so Persephone D____ doesn't sound too long. Persephone Hespera Juno D____ does sound long but it's not something that bothers us too much, as all of our family have rather long names too! Thanks! I love Cosima too.
