    I so, so badly want this to be a real name so I can like it too. Is it just French for Caspian though? :/

    Hestia
    Thalassa -- love the sea connection here -- Spirit of the sea and consort of Pontos.
    Eurybia -- again, a sea connection -- Titan of the mastery of the seas and consort of Krios.
    Tethys -- Wife of Oceanus, and the mother of the rivers, springs, streams, fountains, and clouds.
    Ekecheiria -- eh-kee-keer-ee-ah -- spirit of truce, armistice, and the cessation of all hostilities; honoured at the Olympic Games -- I love the way this name sounds when you say it
    Eupraxia -- spirit of well-being
    Euthenia -- spirit of prosperity, abundance, and plenty
    Sophrosyne -- spirit of moderation, self-control, temperance, restraint, and discretion -- Sophie, Rosie
    Hecate/Hekate -- goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, moon, ghosts, and necromancy -- I like the dark next to Dita's light
    Macaria --daughter of Hades and goddess of blessed death. There is another Macaria who's the daughter of Heracles
    Pandia -- daughter of Selene and Zeus
    Hemera -- primeval goddess of daylight and the sun
    Cybele -- a Phrygian mountain goddess associated with Rhea
    Calypso -- >.>

    Inanna -- Summerian goddess of love, fertility, and war
    Faustine
    Cleopatra -- >.>
    Gloriana
    Indira -- as in Gandhi
    Daedalean -- it's a word that mean complex that I just found yesterday. Relates to Daedalus the builder of the Labyrinth and when spelled Daedalion it was the father of Chione. day-dal-lee-uhn (dal like pal)

    My current favorites of this list are Clemency, Heleyne, and Cosima... which makes me miss Blade :-(
    From your photos I get Francesca all the way. Francesca! Fiery, old and deep with a great literary namesake. Francesca wakes up every morning looking incredibly foxy - not a name that tries too hard but I think she could easily stand up to Aphrodite. Nicknames abound. I secretly like Fanny, which is totally unusable here in the US.
    Seconding Angel's suggestions of Hestia and Faustine. This baby's going to be fiery.
    And randomly, Zuleikha. "zoo-LAY-keh." Just found her in Rumi, thought you might like. Zuzu, obviously.
    Take this all with a pinch of salt - I've been studying chemistry for like 8 hours straight so brain's fried. Hope you're doing well and keeping the dizzy spells at bay! xo
