@ottilie – thanks! I’m having a bit of a tough time because I’m not just totally gone over any of these, Gwyneth has been my longest love. I can’t decide whether Rose is awesomely feminine and understated or just too common and boring. Incidentally, with our surname it’s a Dr. Who character. I think Scarlett still has potential, less so on the nn, Lettie maybe? I appreciate your feedback!
@juniperle – I am sooo impressed to see more “Fia” names. I hadn’t noticed Serafia before, that streamlines Serafina a slight bit, and I like that it’s a Nordic variation. There it is, Nordic Names Wiki - The comprehensive site on Scandinavian first names – which is where I found Fia in the first place. I don’t know HOW I missed Serafia. This is definitely going on the list for consideration. I kind of like Annsofia, which I don’t know if makes any sense because I don’t like just plain Ann and I’ve never liked Sophia at all. Looking it up, it’s related to Annsofie, which is also improvement. Ooh, I have a sister who has claimed Sophie, don’t know if that would work. I’ll save it for DH anyway. SCORE for you! Thank you!

@megalady – Aquila has been on my boy list; traditionally it’s a masculine name, but it *sounds* feminine and I’ve toyed with taking it over to the girls side. Of course it has that “killer” problem that just Quilla has, potentially sounding like “a killer.” The feminization Aquilina might be a better option. Probably won’t make it past DH but maybe for the middles list. Thanks!
@kyemsma – Thanks, the comments really help since I’m not just swooning over anything in particular here. I like Daisy because it’s my mom’s favorite flower (this or Marigold would probably be the best way to do an honor name for her since she hates her given name), and plus Daisy remotely relates to my MIL’s name (Peggy, just Peggy, she’s from that generation). None of the other options pack any kind of family significance (except possibly Serafina/Serafia since my name is in it), but I can’t decide if Daisy is just overly cutesy in relation to brothers C@spian, Zeph@n and Per3grine. Also can’t decide if I actually love the name or if I just like that it reminds me of both grandmas.

@mia42 – I would really like Adelina, but it sort of got ruined by an acquaintance. Adelie has been flirting with the list, along with Adele (too much the singer) and Della (hubby vetoed) so I feel like I’ve pretty much exhausted this rabbit trail. Sarah IS my name so that’s weird; hubby likes that element of Serafina though. Love Katherine/Catherine but it’s overly similar to my son Caspi@n’s name.
@rollo – Guinevere seems like the obvious choice, it really does, it’s a gorgeous name with all the right elements in it, but I just don’t love the Arthur/Guinevere/Lancelot triangle. Culturally speaking, in the middle ages it was generally believed that true romantic love could only be found *outside* marriage. Guinevere represents everything opposite of what Eve represents so I just can’t get behind that one, same thing for all the other Camelot names. Camilla would never, ever work for me, my mom was a huge Princess Di fan back in the day. Faye I do like, but has been vetoed. Thanks for the ideas, I do appreciate it.
@jem – Well I figured that Eve and Genevieve would be weird as sisters, plus we have a close relative (cousin equivalent) named Jen. I recently came by alternate spelling Cordellia, and I wondered if that could be pronounced cor-DELL-ya instead of cor-DEE-lia. It’s the DEE part that gets me in Cordelia. Ack! I feel like I’m just sooo picky! Actually it’s just hard when you have 5 top favorites and they all get tossed!
Okay, I have some new things to run by DH: Serafia, Annsofia, Aquila, Aquilina
List at the moment: Gwyneth, Gwendolyn, Willow, Scarlett, Daisy, Rose, Serafina
Middle name list at the moment: Shenandoah, Edelweiss, Roxanne, Quinn, Serafina, Marigold, Daisy, Livny, Pegeen, Beatrix, Iverine, Quintessa, Quinta, Dulcinea

I love Gwendolyn and Scarlett for you. They both have the right amount of weight to them; they don't feel too "fluffy" with your sons' names, and they don't feel too heavy next to Eve (especially if you're going to call Gwendolyn Gwen). I'm leaning toward Scarlett because it bridges the gap in name length between Eve and her brothers. Eve, Scarlett, Z3phan, Casp1an, P3regrine. It just works really well.♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Silas ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Freeman ◊ Dean ◊ Tobias ◊ Jasper

Have you thought of Roksana? I like it! I also really like Serafia! I like that both those names are a bit more 'magical-adventurish' sounding than your other names, which are all lovely (I actually like all of them!), but sound quite 'normal, every day' next to your boys' names!
