    There's several Greek mythological names on here. I always find that weird that Catholic saints had Greek myth names (like Apollo on the boys list). These are my favorites that I'd love to see used and think are wearable. I might also leave some on the list just to comment on them.

    Agrippina -- I love it but because of Agrippina being such a horrible person, I have a hard time thinking anyone would use it
    Alexandrina
    Alodia
    Anthia (yes this spelling and not Anthea) -- Anthea isn't the original either, it's Antheia (the Greek goddess of flowers and flowery wreaths). I prefer the original spelling :P

    Apollonia
    Aquilina
    Ariadne -- a Cretan princess who became the immortal wife of Dionysus. I like it pronounced the proper Greek way -- air-ee-add-nee
    Augusta
    Bartholomea
    Bridget/Brigid/Brigida
    Calliope -- the muse of epic poetry. It's gorgeous!
    Candida -- Love Voltaire's Candid
    Chiara
    Claudia
    Constantia
    Crescentia
    Cyrenia
    Demetria
    Dionysia -- This one I don't like but it's one of those "This is really weird on a Catholic saint" as Dionysus was into orgies and lots of madness and murder
    Emiliana
    Endellion
    Epiphania
    Faustina
    Florida -- Interesting! Not one I like but...huh!
    Francisca
    Genoveva
    Hedwig -- but people are probably going to say "Oh, Harry Potter's owl?"
    Helen/Helena
    Hermione -- daughter of Menelaus and Helen; wife of Neoptolemus, and later Orestes. I like it pronounced the Greek way hair-mee-OH-nee
    Illuminata
    Irene
    Kateri
    Leocadia
    Lucretia -- Again, probably to associated with the Borgea, but still...it's lovely
    Merewenna/Merwenna
    Morwenna
    Musa
    Narcisa -- I know a Narcissa. ^_^ She goes by Sissy
    Odilia
    Olympia
    Roswinda
    Severa
    Sexburga -- O_O
    Sylvia
    Symphorosa
    Tatiana
    Thea
    Theodosia
    Tryphonia
    Ulphia
    Ursula/Urszula
    Veep -- This is a weird one
    Veridiana
    Zenobia -- "life of Zeus" This is weird for a Catholic saint too. I adore it though.
