    I like the sound of Persephone but, the meaning is horrific. Not something I would personally name a child after, you know? I used to like Lisbeth until my brother jokes and says Lesbo - _ -

    But I like Ingrid, Isolde, and especially Theodora because of it's meaning! Oh, and Millicent with the nickname Millie would be darling.

    1. Persephone prefer Penelope
    2. Ingridalways sounds harsh to me and my nose wrinkles up when I say it, sorry. I knew a very nice Ingrid in college.
    3. Isolde such a tragic tale, keeps me from loving it
    4. Athena
    5. Peony adorable mn, perfect amount of sweetness and charm
    6. Venus not my favorite, I prefer Calliope.
    7. Aphrodite
    8. Leonora
    9. Lisbeth
    10. Forsythia
    11. Calliope love the way this rolls off the tongue.
    12. Jesminder meaning? Comes across as made up. Maybe if I knew more history.
    13. Calliatrix see Jessminder
    14. Wenhaver how do you pronounce it?
    15. Pridwyn
    16. Aithne
    17. Branwen
    18. Zelenka
    19. Tosia
    20. Thora
    21. Theodora
    22. Halia
    23. Iolana
    24. Anrid
    25. Artemis
    26. Addfwyn
    27. Una just does not sound attractive
    28. Millicent my favorite on your list


    Go!
    It seems you several different genres going here: Irish/welsh, mythology, Russian? and vintage. Would you use a combo of these styles for first and mn?

    I prefer the vintage names like Millicent, Theodora, lisbeth for first names with the mythology/Irish sort of names for middles. I think the vintage names are really versatile and the more exotic adds spunk.

    I think names like Pridwyn and Addfwyn have pronunciation issues built in unless you are familiar with Irish/Gaelic/welsh names. There seem to be many berries who love these names but I think most people in the US would find them difficult. That said there are some lovely names that fit this genre but I would choose more intuitive spellings if it was my child, however not made up spellings.

    So if I was going for a combo
    Millicent Calliope
    Theodora Peony
