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
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
Ariadne -- a Cretan princess who became the immortal wife of Dionysus. I like it pronounced the proper Greek way -- air-ee-add-nee
Calliope -- the muse of epic poetry. It's gorgeous!
Candida -- Love Voltaire's Candid
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
Florida -- Interesting! Not one I like but...huh!
Hedwig -- but people are probably going to say "Oh, Harry Potter's owl?"
Hermione -- daughter of Menelaus and Helen; wife of Neoptolemus, and later Orestes. I like it pronounced the Greek way hair-mee-OH-nee
Lucretia -- Again, probably to associated with the Borgea, but still...it's lovely
Narcisa -- I know a Narcissa. ^_^ She goes by Sissy
Sexburga -- O_O
Veep -- This is a weird one
Zenobia -- "life of Zeus" This is weird for a Catholic saint too. I adore it though.
