Thread: To Encircle Circe with Magic

Okay, I have a moment to look at the combos you already have.
Remember my hangup with vowel-ending names being next to vowel-beginning names? Yeah, you have a lot of that going on here, so I don’t love these combos very much. :-( I did spot Ondine and Olwen making the leap from the names you suggested for me! Would you consider Circe Tinuviel Ondine? I like that a lot. Some thing for Circe Tinuviel Eimyrja - though if Tinuviel NEEDS to stay in third spot, I think Circe Eimyrja Tinuviel is the best of the vowel-to-vowel combinations.
Also I think Lilje is a great “tweak” for your Lily combo. It feels very Scandinavian. Or if you’re looking for a “normal name” then I think Lily would be a pretty fantastic option, it looks gorgeous with the other names, and I think Tinuviel manages to balance the similar sounds of Circe and Lily. The song makes for a nice additional layer of meaning, since you like it so much that seems important.
I’m afraid I just plain don’t care for Ophelia with Circe and Tinuviel. C and T are utterly light delicate strength, and Ophelia…just isn’t quite right for some reason. Too much frill, maybe? Too heavy?
Circe Gersemi Tinuviel is very cute, but it sounds…cute. I think it’s not quite right.
A couple of Scandinavian names I found:
Circe Benedikte Tinuviel (Norwegian form of Benedict "blessed”), which is attractive but maybe laced a bit too tightly.
Circe Brytteva Tinuviel (bright/shining + to give) - I like the V’s in both middles here, and I think the meaning is cool considering your imagery for Circe.
Circe Kolbjørg Tinuviel (black/dark + save/stronghold/castle)Mama to Caspian, Zephan, Eve, Peregrine, Dulcinea . . . and an October surprise.
Under Consideration: Apollos, Ragnar, Mordecai
still searching for girl names...

I just have to add this! Lykke is making its way as a Norwegian name, and I think Circe Tinúviel Lykke (Circe Lykke Tinúviel? Flow isn't my thing) is to die for. (If you pronounce it the Norwegian way of course, sur-see lykk-ee isn't the bestest of sounds). The meaning is great, it's Scandinavian and oh, my loooooord, the image. My heart might just beat its way out of my chest.

Yep I say she's practically finished and filed away already! My heart jumps for joy to see Nuvi in anything, so really the first middle is just icing on the cake of a beautifully perfect combo. My top 2 would be your original pairing and Sessh's fantastic new suggestion, if you choose to add that to the list. =]
Circe Ophelia Tinuviel- I like Ophelia, I don't love Ophelia, but I know you love her and she sounds divine
Circe Lilja Tinuviel- A great namesake, a lovely flower, and this new spelling is a perfect nod to your heritageDominic James~ (5)
