    I agree with Sheesh. I'd save Guinevere for a middle name -> it would just be too much with Morgana.

    Morgana
    Belphoebe
    Zenobia

    Are my definite top three for you. (Sorry I just had to: Imagine a little: Morgana Lyonesse Wren or Morgana Lyonesse Elaine running around.)

    Oh, and yeah..... don't get me wrong I like Verdande when pronounced correctly. I just imaging all the bad ways people could pronounce this when they don't know how it's pronounced correctly. But I am in the US and maybe the Brits natural inclinations would be less likely to induce full-body shivers.

    maybe Endora, Dexter, Gideon & Lorelei

    I think because of Morgana you can easily eliminate (or move) Melusine and Guinevere. Not too much else to add that I haven't already said before. Cleopatra, Gwenllian, and Zenobia remain my favorites (in that order) and Isolde & Morgs round out my Top 5. =]

    Belphoebe- I like this a lot, but I see even better names on this list.
    Cleopatra- I ADORE Cleo, and if anyone could pull this name off, she's a little sister to a gal named Aphrodite.
    Gwenllian- Pretty, but same as Belphoebe.
    Isolde- Gorgeous. Sleepysessha hit the nail on the head here, I think- perfectly frosty and romantic for a February child. Though I do miss Isis...
    Melusine- Yay! I love Melusine, though it sounds less goddess-like than Aphrodite, and more like it could be just a really rare, chic name.
    Morgana- You said Morgan isn't popular where you are, and in that case, this name is pure magic.
    Nimue- Lovelovelove Nimue. Makes me think of those beautiful, crystal-blue pools of water seen in caves.
    Olympia- I think this might be mistaken for Olivia a lot.
    Polyxena- Definitely prefer this to Olympia, but part of me thinks it sounds like a sort of medicine.
    Pandora- Beautiful, of course!
    Tinuviel- Nuvi and Dita would be beautiful.
    Verdande- Reminds me of verdant, so I think of a lush green apple tree.
    Zenobia- You know my feelings on this one

    So, my new top 5:
    1) Zenobia
    2) Nimue
    3) Isolde
    4) Tinuviel
    5) Morgana

    Best wishes!
    | Arabella Monet | Henrietta Plum | Isolde Noor | Agatha Ruby | Marian Primrose |
    | Emma Berlin | Cressida Lilac | Jessamine Lark | Vivienne Snow | Ireland Eve |

Even though they're so different, they go splendidly together. Isolde's icy romanticism, like frosted eyelashes, is so delicately elemental, perfect for a February babe...she couldn't be more quintessentially Winter.
    Definitely agree with the Isolde comment. Isolde is the perfect name for a winter babe if there was ever one.

    Love the list that you and your husband have decided upon for now! Such cute picks <3
