Yep, I have met way too many women 40 + yrs old with the name Pelagia and most of them ruined the name completely to me. But I think it could work on USA and I liked it even better as a middle :-)“I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.”

@bellerose: OK, you've made it clear for me, as I only know one Pelagia in her 20-s. Thanks, beauty!

Aquilina - like a lot!
Athena - love!
Artemis - love
Ceridwen - very pretty
Cressida - pretty
Eluned - pretty
Gwenore/Gwenonwy - I can't decide if I like these or not. I adore the name Gwen, but these are just unfamiliar to me though their sounds are beautiful
Lavinia - love
Melusine - not bad
Minerva - like a lit
Olympia - okay, I prefer Octavia though
Viola - love! beautiful
Constance - I don't truly dislike this one, it just feels so stuffy. The meaning is, of course, lovely, but it feels like naming a kid Constable or Consonant
Electra - this feels too much like a superhero name to me. Like her husbands name should be Frozone.
Leocadia/Leontine - Leo is so masculine to me that it's hard to see these as girls names
Melpomene - completely unfamiliar, but I'm just not fond of the sound combination. There are many more attractive Mel names and the "mean" ending throws me off
Pomeline - Pomeline just makes me think of a pommel on a saddle or the pommel horse in gymnastics
Nemea - I much prefer Medea to Nemea, it's just so much more attractive to me. Bit too Nemo I guess
Ottoline - I've never been able to love this one. All I see is Otto/Auto line--aka traffic (a line of cars)
Pelagia - this reminds me too much of paraplegia
Proserpina - just not attractive to me, feels very literal. Liking naming a child Wealthina.
Sophronia - in my head it's a combo of soporific and a soft freeze and sophomore. Kinda like Freshmettia.
Galatea - I don't truly hate this one, but I see Gattica (movie title) and Galatia (ancient land area)Top Names: Benedict Zeal & Noelle Geneva
Olivia/Livy : Darah/Bethel : Eve/Verity
Eli/Calvin: Luke/Zane: Levi/Phineas
