    I really, really like Rowena June Arianrhod and Rosamund Eve Arianrhod. I'm leaning toward Rosamund because Ulysses, Bishop, Winifred, and Rosamund as siblings is simply magical. The Winifred/Rowena thing is sticking out to me too. While I like Arianrhod as a first name in theory, it just feels far too unusual next to Ulysses, Bishop, and Winifred.

    Rowena June Arianrhod - I was loving this until pp mentioned Winifred and Rowena could both be Winnies and now I can't un-see it. Does Winifred have a nn? Since you'd be calling Rowena, Roo, I don't think it matters. Plus the -enna pronunciation (which is beautiful) reduces the Winnie-ness. I still think this is a beautiful and meaningful combo.

    Rowena June Ariadne - not as into Ariadne

    Rowena June Arianne - seems a little softer but is lovely

    Rosamund Eve Arianrhod - lovely, lovely. Can definitely still do Roo. I would choose this if Rowena seems too close to Winifred.

    Gwendolen Aria June - Gwendolen seems too similar to Winifred to me.

    Arianrhod Rosalia June (possible nn Ari?) - do not care for Arianrhod as a first name

    Ruxandra Arianrhod June - not for me

    Arianrhod Rowena June - not for me

    For some reason Rowena (with WENN as opposed to WEEN) is hard for me to say. It is definitely prettier than RoWEENa, but my mouth struggles with it. I would almost say, just call her Rowan! I prefer Rosalind to Rowena (Rosamund comes in 2nd).
