Brutal honest opinion on my new list part 2 . Lets make the list smaller !!
Hi , berries !! i have been thinking a lot lately and i make a new list because the other one was very terrible ( my own list , no BF impact ) ,
My new list :
Artemis : possible combo Artemis Grey
Isabella ( moving to the middle )
Dysis ( new )
Eleusis ( new )
Niobe pr . Ny - oh - bee ( althought i pr . different )
Briseis pr . bri-say-is ( see above )
Pandora ( althought i hate the nn Panda & Dora )
Nemea ( someone amazing suggest this to me with the nn Lion )
Iole vs Isolde ( cant decide . help )
Hekate ( middle )
Orseis ( not sure on that )
I know that a lot might seem strange to you but iam okay with them .
Like the other list , you can be as brutal as you want
Hopefully after that i can make my top 10 .
combos or suggestions are always welcome .
Thanks in advance .

Isolde - Iole looks and sounds weird.
Pandora - Although you'd better think of another nn quick smart!
Artemis - I know it's a woman's name, but it's so masculine-sounding, especially with mn Grey.
Isabella - It's lovely, but it's incredibly popular (might be okay as a mn).
Hekate - I'd vastly prefer Hecate.
I think all the names in the "good" category are solid, but all the names in the "bad" category aren't just names I don't like much - I think they're pretty awful. My top three would be: Anastasia, Cassandra and Pandora.Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Jane - Mabel - Susannah
Arthur - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

Aphrodite: Toss! This is just so much name to live up to. I would think, "What if I have a rough-and-tumble tomboy or a shy bookworm and here she is named after the goddess of love, beauty and sex!" Unless you have Greek heritage where this is truly a traditional name, I would set it aside.
Anastasia: Keep! It's over the top and frilly but I would still enjoy seeing a little girl with this name.
Artemis : Keep! I do get what the previous poster said about it having a rather masculine sound, a la Aramis. But unlike Aphrodite, I think this name is wearable in day to day life for any type of girl. Artie or Emi or Missy would all be cute nicknames. Still I wouldn't combine it with Grey, since that makes it even MORE masculine, to me. Suggest: Artemis Day.
Isabella: Toss! The world is full of Isabellas, and it is a beautiful name. But you have such eclectic taste: don't settle for something too "safe" or you might kick yourself later.
Dysis - Keep - for now! I like the meaning and it's unusual yet easy to spell. But it kind of reminds me of Dyson vacuums and someone yelling "Die, sis!" :/
Eleusis - Keep - for now! The spelling might trip people up but I think it's pretty. nn Lusi (Lucy)!
Niobe - Toss! I like the name (the look and sound), but the story behind it is violent and depressing.
Briseis -Toss! Pronunciation and spelling issues all her life, and not pretty enough in my view to be worth it.
Cassandra - Toss! Although I hate to say it, because it's so pretty, but - see "Isabella."
Elektra - Keep - for now! I totally get the "cool factor" of this name, but I would hate to be named this because of all the electric jokes.
Persephone - Keep! Her mythology is a little bit dark, but not like Niobe. It is unusual yet wearable for all ages.
Pandora - Toss! If you don't like the most likely nicknames, cut it now and save yourself the worrying.
Juliet - Keep! The most common one I vote for keeping - it's just a lovely name and less commonly given as a first name than a middle name it seems like.
Nemea - Keep! If it's pronounced "nehMAYuh." Exotic but approachable.
Lyonesse - Toss! All life long: "Your mother named you Lioness? Was she on a safari?" etc. I couldn't.
Lupin - Toss! Remus Lupin the male Harry Potter werewolf, aka "Moony!"
Iole - Toss! Looks weird, I forget and think "eye-ole" (rhymes with hole).
Isolde - Keep - for now ! Classic and wearable but will have pronunciation issues.
Hekate - Keep (in the middle)!
Orseis - Toss! Sounds even more masculine than Artemis!
