So this is my husband's four other choices. He asks me every day if you've updated any lists!
He did say that he feels like if you use Olympia, Orpheus from your boys list would be too much. (Honestly, I don't know where his sudden interest in names is coming from. He never gets into it when I talk names with him!)
My four, in addition to Morgana.
And I'm gonna cheat, and give a tied-for-fifth option. Guinevere/Isolde.Mi corazón

OK, my top 5 would be (in order):
With Cleopatra the close 6th
Boudicca -- This would make a fantastic middle name -- Isis Boudicca Nimue
Circe -- I just don't like her in the front. I think she doesn't have the same substance as Aphrodite and that you have better names for the front spot. She's a fantastic middle and she's fantastic with Morgana -- Morgana Circe Ondine
Guinevere -- I love this name, and I see your argument (though from my reading of Le Morte de Arthur she was never forced into marrying Arthur, she just did and then regretted it which is not a good reason for adultery), but I just don't think you can have a Morgana and Guinevere and Lancelot and Merlin >.< Think of it this way, you'd have sisters named for the wife of Arthur and for the sister who raped him and help ruin their lives together... Not saying the men weren't also jerks.
Nimue -- I don't like it as much as Niniane, but I love it still. It's sort of flat next to Aphrodite but it's fabulous in the middle. Isolde Leontine Nimue
Olympia -- I think it's too much. Aphrodite and her sister whose named after Aphrodite's home. To me, it's a little odd. She's a gorgeous name and gorgeous in the middle though. Proserpina Olympia Ondine
Vashti -- I just think they sound way different and don't go together even a little.
