    I think the 2:4 format (in terms of syllables) flows really nicely here. Xanthe Philomena and Xanthe Amaryllis are definitely not "safe" names, but I think the longer middle adds a musicality to the shorter first name.

    I voted for Xanthe Vanessa. I absolutely ADORE the name Xanthe (husband is not as sold on it). I love the sound of it, as well as the meaning. I like the name with a 3 or 4 syllable middle as well. Also, Vanessa is a very "normal" name that she could fall back on, if need be. However, if Xanthe is my daughter's name, I would not call her by her middle and I don't think she would want to go by it either!

    collmcc523: Thank you for your input. I agree about the rhythm of the syllables.

    stephykneejo: Xanthe and Maeby would be cute. I'm still debating on whether I want a more normal MN or not. Because I'm not really that concerned about it, but I'm trying to think if it's the best idea after all.
