I cry (not really... but close) when I think about how much I like Ione, but it's an outright straight up rhyme with our surname so I can't have it.
Branching out from the Greek, which you have so gorgeously covered anyway as far as ideas, I like it with ones that are two syllable with the accent on the second syllable - but not Marie, as it feels rather abused.
Ione Tamar (was thinking the Hebrew, ta-MAR)
Ione Sabine (was thinking of the French, sa-BEEN)
Ione Yael (ya-ELLE)
And it sounds good with all my favourite one-syllable names too... Ione Blythe, Ione Clare, Ione Faith...
It's just a great name. *sniffle*

...That's the Greek pronunciation? My grandma was named Ione and she always pronounced it EYE-own.
But anyway, if you're going with that pronunciation, I'd definitely avoid anything that's short and ends with -ee, unless she likes it if its rhyming so closely together.
Ione Philomena or Philomine
(It can be pronounced several ways; feel-oh-may-nah/fill-oh-may-na or feel-oh-main/fil-oh-main, or it can end in meen or meena)
Ione Llewellyn (I think its prettier on a girl, to be honest.)
phew.I'm so indecisive; one day I love a name, the next I'm not so sure anymore.
Philomena - Tempest - Autumn - Odessa - Zelda - Octavia - Margo - Cyra - Agnes - Ramona - Thora -
Sunniva - Juno - Chrysanthemum - Calliope - Nova - Libra - Andromeda - Ruby - Molly - Joy - Emma
