Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn
Anything or anyone that doesn't bring you alive
Is too small for you

Gwendolyn, Lillian, Delphine, and Aurora were my favourites. I like Gwendolen more without the y, though. I do really like a three syllable name following Ivy, and the ends-in-n thing sounds great to me.
Lillian is a little bit popular for me, and a little bit floral to pair with Ivy. I really like the combo of Ivy Delphine, glad your other half likes it!
Some other ideas:
Ivy Ceridwen (you said Welsh was okay!) I love Ceridwen.
Ivy Angharad - my ultimate Welsh guilty pleasure.
Ivy Rhiannon - I would use this if I could, but we know a Rhiannon who is ruining it for my husband.
Ivy Liliwen - I like Liliwen and Lilwen, both of which I've seen listed as Welsh forms of "white lily" but I worry people will think I'm lisping Lillian. They are interesting though, especially as middle names.
Ivy Gwyneira - I like the "white snow" meaning, and it's Welsh.
Ivy Vivien - I like the tie to Viviane, the Lady of The Lake of Arthurian legend.
Ivy Morgana - More Arthurian legend
Ivy Imogen - Gaelic, Shakesperean
Ivy Sabrina - Sabrina is actually a goddess name, associated with the River Severn. I also think of Audrey Hepburn and she gives the name Sabrina a lilting, cat-elf type feel to me.
Ivy Hespera - Evening nymph in mythology terms, not quiiiite a goddess, but...?
Ivy Laetitia - I like the elements of Greco-Roman pantheons that are obscure, it spares your kid some of the embarrassment of the really graphic/weird legends. Anyway, Laetitia is "joy" and that's pretty nice.
Ivy Brigida - just one of my favourite variants of the names in honour of the Celtic goddess Brighid.
Ivy Zephirine - I very much like this feminization of Zephyr. I don't actually want to use Zephyr for a boy, but I love Zephirine/Zephyrine for a girl. There's also a variety of rose called 'Zephirine Drouhin' that is nearly thornless and very sweet-scented.
Hope you're not mad I went slightly overboard! I love the name Ivy!
