    @stripedsocks: Love Raziela and Raphaela and Ariella. I will put those on my list.

    @mega_muffin: Love Ambrose and Ariadne and Cecilia. Too bad I've gotten negative reactions to Ambrose and Cecilia from family because they're so nice. Maybe next time I remind them that they are saint names. Maybe I can win them over =)
    Just another teenberry and writer, a lover of names

    So these are based as much on the saint as the name itself. Some are clunky, but have beautiful stories.

    Theodora (Empress, wife of Justinian)
    Junia
    Zenaida (one of the first female doctors, known for her thoughtfulness and compassion)
    Thekla
    Philothea
    Xenia
    Susanna
    Cassiane (also Kassiani or Cassia)
    Elizabeth the Dragonslayer
    Lydia
    Verena
    Vera
    Sophia
    Genevieve
    And Brigid, of course!

    I have tried so hard to convince my husband to love Stella Maris!
