Snowfall and Snowangels: Middles for Ceridwen
We've found our seven little names and are heading into the land of middles. I'm so excited Husband likes Ceridwen, so we'll begin with my little snow beauty.
Ceridwen's a snow day; the morning after the first snowfall when the world is quiet, soft, white and pure. The way the pale sun shines through the forest, robins chirping blissfully in the trees. She's star shine making the snow look like thousands of teeny tiny diamonds, foxes footprints in the snow. Making snow lanterns, snow angels, skating on the pond and skiing down the hills, running through the fresh snow where none has gone before. Snowflakes and the warmth in the cold. She's the feeling of frosty, rosy cheeks, being wrapped in wool and fur, coming inside to blazing fires and hot chocolate. Board games and tattered woolen jumpers. Candlelight, cinnamon cake, reading Little Women curled up under a knitted throw, frozen toes defrosting. This is the feeling I get from this name. I obviously do not know what my Ceridwen would be like, but I imagine a Ceridwen as someone bookish, clever, wise, cosy, individual, tough. Someone who'd like to live by herself in an ivy covered cottage writing a book on flower lore or something.
one - two - three - four - five
These are the middles I've been thinking about, but I'm very happy for you to use others:
I don't really have any combinations in mind, we used to have Ceridwen Chione Solenne on our list, but Husband admitted he's not overly fond of Solenne and he's so-so on Chione (keeping Chione just in case though!).
We're doing two middles, surname begins with L and is a hyphenated 2-1 syllable mess.
Thank you for reading!

Ceridwen is definitely one of my favourites from your seven chosen. I love your imagery of her and reading it I really thought that she would be kind of perfect with Ingrid (though my love for Ingrid probably makes me slightly biased, lol). I also love Elbereth with Ceridwen (so obviously Ceridwen Ingrid Elbereth sounds quite smashing to me ).
Ceridwen Astrid Elbereth
Ceridwen Astrid Éowyn
Ceridwen Astrid Eurydice
Ceridwen Astrid Heleyne
Ceridwen Chione Ingrid
Ceridwen Eira Elbereth
Ceridwen Eira Heleyne
Ceridwen Ingrid Elbereth
Ceridwen Ingrid Éowyn
Ceridwen Ingrid Eurydice
Ceridwen Ingrid Heleyne
Ceridwen Ingrid Natasha
Ceridwen Lilje Clemency
Ceridwen Lilje Eurydice
Ceridwen Lilje Nathalie
(A few) suggestions:
Ceridwen Chione Eimyrja
Ceridwen Eimyrja Aurore
Ceridwen Eimyrja Chione
Ceridwen Sága ElberethZelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

I'm quite fond of Ceridwen and Chione together, even though I normally don't care for alliteration, so here's some possible replacements for Solenne:
Ceridwen Chione Sonja
Ceridwen Chione Stella
Ceridwen Chione Astrid
And some non-Chione combos:
Ceridwen Eurydice Natasha
Ceridwen Lucia Snow
Ceridwen Isolde Faustine
Ceridwen Nathalie Aurore
Ceridwen Theophania IngridProud mother to William "Liam" Balthazar, and expecting #2 in September 2014!
Future Daughters: Catherine "Cate" Ophelia, Isobel "Zoe" Theophania, Veronica "Vera" Seraphine

Ooh little Winnie! Love those little snow-bright apple cheeks
Though I adore Astrid and Eurydice, I think they're a bit too repetitive on the RID syllable. Same with Ingrid, and the WENs in Ceridwen and Eowyn.
I too am in love with Ceridwen and Elbereth together…the very sound of Elbereth is like the soft cloud one's breath makes when one is huffing and puffing in the winter air. Gotta run for now, but I think my top pick would have to be Ceridwen Elbereth Heleyne – perfection!Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Ender _____ ~ Caspian _____ ~ Tobias _____
