    Ones I love:
    Guinevere
    Isolde
    Circe
    Olympia
    Calliope

    Ones I just can't get behind:
    Boudicca (this just begs to be nicknamed Booty, IMHO)
    Hippolyta (same with the word Hippo)
    Jezebel (a morally shameless woman...)

    I prefer Nimue to Niniane.

    I think Isolde and Calliope are best,though Isolde goes better with Aphrodite in my opinion.

    Okey doke, here's my top 3:
    Guinevere
    Isolde
    Gwellian

    The reasons I don't like the others are pretty similar. A lot of them have unattractive sounds or sound quite clunky to me, and many of them don't feel dainty or fairy-like and I'm just not feeling them with Aphrodite. But I reckon both Morgana and Guinevere would be fantastic next to Dita

    My phone isn't letting me copy/paste, so I'll have to wait until I get home to reply. But I just wanted to say that I prefer Nimue to Niniane--it has a singularly lovely sound.

    My top five:

    Morgana: Ana ("AH-na") is a possible nickname. I met a little girl at work named Christiana who's nicknamed Ana.
    Calliope
    Nausicaa: I've always pronounced this as "NAW-sic-cah".
    Isolde
    Olympia

    These are the ones that are the most usable to me. There are a lot of big names here---Cleopatra might overwhelm the bearer with connotations. Jezebel has a very beautiful sound, but the biblical connotations are very heavy. I love a lot of these names, but you might want to consider usability along with the "stunning" factor.
