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

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
