Some more, because I can't help myself. not that you need anymore.
Aethelwyne - probably better as a middle. It means friend of the elves, which is quite wonderful.
Albinia - this used to be on your list, where did it go? It's gorgeous! The Goddess faery of the dawn.
Aliénore - I met one yesterday and it made my heart jump and I thought of you.
Asteria - maybe easier to get your beau on board with this one (compared to Astoria, which I know you love)?
Azenor - medieval gorgeousness. She was a princess accused of adultery. She was trapped in a box, thrown into the ocean where she gave birth to a son.
Calypso - I just like this for you. Cornelia and Calypso is unexpected, but beautiful.
Clarissant - daughter of Morgause and Lot.
Cydonia - epithet of Aphrodite.
Eirawen - snow white!
Erianthe - "sweet as many flower". Probably best as a middle, I just wanted to throw it out there.
Fosette - means dimple! Probably best as a middle... but so cute.
Glitonea - one of Morgana's sisters.
Griselda - a name used by Boccaccio in Decameron. It's a horrid tale really, her husband tests her obedience in some terrible ways, but the name is rather nice.
Heliabel - other name for Dindrane.
Hortensia/Ortensia - I think you could pull this off.
Juventas - I love this name, Roman Goddess of youth.
Lanuvina - Instead of Lavinia, obviously. An epithet of Juno, quite warrior like. Lavinia derives from Lavinium.
Laomedia - a nereid! Like the christall sheen...
Lyonesse - you like lions.
Lysianassa - a neried.
Lysistrata - awesome Greek chick, the play is fantastic.
Nerissa - The Merchant of Venice.
Orseis - a nymph.
Ortygia - epithet of Artemis.
Quenilda/Quenilla - old medieval name; "battle" + "queen".
Rixende - I read this in Kate Mosse's Labyrinth, I think it's beautiful.
Rosenwyn - "fair rose"
Zinevra - another woman in Boccaccio's Decameron.
Zosteria - epithet of Athene.My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014
