    Mission, Quest... Sort of Thing

    Starting the middle fun! Sorry for being all dorky (If you got the title, that is!)

    We're looking for names to match the (in our eyes) beauty of A p h r o d i t e M a r i a n I l l y r i a.

    We're in particular looking for names from these categories: Nordic (Norse mythology/legends, Norwegian and Danish), fairy tales and folklore, literature, history, mythology, astronomy, magick, nature/word names if they're brilliant. I want names that twinkle and sparkle and spin. You can see from our list below what kind of things we're looking for.

    Taking a note out of Fey's book: This is what I imagine our daughters will look like when they're a little older than six months...
    one - two - three- four

    ...and how I imagine them to behave:
    one - two - three - four - five

    Husband is an artist, he's blonde and blue eyed, I'm dark brunette and green eyed. Our daughter Dita looks like me, so I'm expecting this one to look like her daddy, but of course we do not know, I'd just love a little one with his blue eyes and blonde curls. We like stars and wine and trees and lace and roses and water. I want a house full of children, I want it to be eternally filled with their silver laughter, daisy chains and muddy wellies. I want my kitchen table to be crowded with their friends, sleepovers and tea parties. I want my house to smell like cinnamon and roses. My children shall be little wild spirits, they will be taken on fishing trips, camping trips; we'll hunt, pick mushrooms and cloudberries, fall asleep under the starry skies. They'll collect leaves and rocks, nurse wounded animals back to life, they'll read and draw and cook. They'll be brave knights battling dragons in the garden, they'll build forts in our bed, playing mermaids on the rocks in the ocean, collecting shells and nautical treasures.

    These are the first names we're working with:
    Callisto
    Hespera
    Isis
    Morgana
    Pandora
    Tinúviel

    The name I'm in love with the most on your list is either Ophelia or Atalanta. I love your style of names! Hespera Sonja Elbereth is amazing, some other combos I like are:
    Ophelia Verdande Saga
    Atalanta Ingrid Mist
    Elaine Kara Giselle
    Natasha Lorelei Sol (my favorite)
    Henrietta. Chiara. Marisol. Imogen.
    Hakuna matata, it means no worries for the rest of your days.
    Stars can't shine without darkness.
    You can't have a better tommorow if you keep thinking about yesterday.

    Combinations:

    Morgana Daphne Cassandra
    Isis Eowyn Giselle
    Pandora Clemency Amoret
    Callisto Ingrid Melusine
    Tinuviel Honey Cissea
    Morgana Olwen Lysistrata

    Isis Titania Yvaine
    Morgana Celebrian Stella
    Pandora Loveday Aglaia
    Isis Natasha Silmarien
    Callisto Eva Terpsichore

    I may come up with more combinations later. Your names are so much fun to mix and match!
