Magic/Nature suggestions for girl #2?
We have been feeling pretty optamistic about either Athena or Indira for girl #2. We figure although we LOVE Athena it might just be too similar to our first daughter's name (Azula Rosemary). I've been trying Indira out, though, and I'm not sure that's the name for us either. Today I saw Marzanna as a suggestion on someone's post, and now I'm hoping to get some more name suggestions.
I love nature names, and am pretty set on using something "herbal" for her middle name. Our mn frontrunner right now is Sage.
We love mythology & names that give off a magic/ethereal/natural kind of vibe. Corey loves fantasy names too. Nothing overly froufrou feminine - I like our kids to have a little spunk too!
Please, please give your suggestions.
Some names that we like include Esparanza, Saffron, Valencia, Isobel, Zia & Coral.
For boys, we love Atlas & Fox, & Corey loves Ender.Azula Rosemary 1 July 2012

Well, it might've been me who mentioned Marzanna - I love this name and it's one of the names I'm trying to get someone to use, haha. She's the Slavic Goddess of winter and death (not in a bad way, she resided over death and rebirth in nature, the natural cycle). She's also called Morena and Marmora. You could also spell Athena Athene, makes it more different from Azula?
Ethereal magic and nature names for little miss Azula's sister:
Albinia - Etruscan Goddess of the dawn
Chione/Khione - Greek Goddess of snow
Demeter/Ceres - Greek/Roman Goddess of agriculture and fertility, she's very much associated with winter
Eira - Norse Goddess of healing, it means "snow" in Welsh
Eirawen or Gwyneira - Welsh for Snow White
Eisa - A princess in Norse mythology, "glowing embers"
Ermine - another name for the stoat, usually referred to as ermine in the winter when its fur is thick and white

Huldra - a beautiful forest nymph in Scandinavian folklore
Idhunna/Idunn/Idonea/Idony - Norse Goddess of youth and apples
Laetitia/Letitia - Roman Goddess of happiness
Libera - Roman Goddess of fertility, associated with Ceres and Proserpina and thus would be perfect for a winter baby

I love Esperanza, it's beautiful. Saffron is nice - not overly used. Maybe a little dated here in the UK thanks to Ab-Fab but that will pass and is probably unimportant in the US. Valencia and Coral are also great - all nice choices really. With Azula my choice out of those would be Valencia/Valentina.
