@ottilie - Delphinia starts to edge a little too close to the overly-frilly line for me. Not digging Greek festivals or Artemis, either. Good suggestion though, thanks.
@mousehouse7 - For Amaryllis, hubby suggested Amy as a nn; I'm thinking Rilla. I never would have thought to use Mary as a nn for it, but that brings up the Pippin-and-Merry thing again. But speaking of Mary, I maybe could do Rosemary. I do love the herb. Rosemarie was suggested above, I don't know why I didn't think of Rosemary. I'm going to add that to the "ratings" list and see what hubby thinks. He knew a Rosemary once but she was like, 100, and he always liked her, so we'll see. *I* like Rosewynd, but then I love Rosewyn and Ellowen. I can't find Rosewynd anywhere...is it a "real" name? And now that I'm back around to Rose names, I would *totally* have Rosamund at the top of my list if I could have it pronounced Rose-a-mund instead of Roz-a-mund.
Blerghh, yeah, I could do without Paltrow. I don't follow celebrity news much, but people have commented on her from time to time. I keep thinking, she's going to fizzle out eventually, right? I mean, in 5 or 10 years, is anyone even going to remember her? I feel like the name Gwyneth has a whole lot more history than deserves to be overshadowed by one obnoxious Hollywood star.
@rollo - Yes, Araminta has come up once or twice. I don't really like the "minty" party. I might know too many botanical names and have too many opinions on them, lol.
Okay, cool discussion here. I'm putting Rosemary on the preliminary list.
Also to keep things easy to follow, here's the latest list of considerations: Willow, Wren, Liberty, Daisy, Rose, Scarlett, Gwendolyn, Ivy, Amaryllis, Skye, & Gwenyth.

Eve Anastasia and...
These are probably my favorite combo options from your current list. Eve Anastasia and Gwendolyn Skye *work* for me.
A few more ideas:
Sable Amaryllis or Sable Amarantha jump at me. Aria Rosamund, Aria Gwendolyn, Aurora Scarlett. etc.Maximus Alexander's Mama
