    Also--it appears to mean "gift of the Nymphs."

    That's one of the reasons I love it. When I think of Nymphadora I don't even think of nymphomaniac I think of Nymphs but apparently most people think of nymphomaniac which is a little saddening. Obviously though I can't control what people think when they hear it and I don't want them to judge her or us as parents when they hear it. Still keeping it on the table though. Thank you for the opinions and the other suggestions.

    Sorry, but Nymphadora would be a very unwise choice for a human child. I think it sounds and looks very pretty and would totally use it on a cat or something, but the nymphomaniac thing is way too terrible and obvious of a connection to saddle on a real human...

    I remember really liking several names from Sirius Black's family tree, I think there was an Elladora and an Araminta? Both are beautiful and have that magical sound like Nymphadora. Not that the Black family tree is the greatest list of namesakes, but the names are great and very Harry Potter-y.

    Audrey Minerva would be lovely, too. Professor McGonagall's a fantastic character!

    I think that your daughter would probably be embarrassed when telling people what her middle name is when she gets older. That would be my main deterrent from using the name.
