    "Smooshes"?

    A recent thread got me thinking about "smoosh"names, usually a genre which I dislike with a passion. However, upon trying my hand at coming up with some combinations of my own, I came up with a few 'nice' ones: not smooshed, as such, but legitimate elements with different origins joined together, to create a name with a lovely meaning and/or sound. I thought everyone could share their own and I would create a list of useable ones on the first page - feel free to let me know which ones you like/think could work as a first name or middle.

    Girls
    Crescadia - Latin 'crescens' + Welsh 'cad' = "growing battle"
    Sorenna - Japanese 'sora' + Japanese 'ren' = "sky lotus, love of the sky"
    Sorastra - Japanese 'sora' + Greek 'aster' = "sky-star, star of the sky"
    Asterwen - Greek 'aster' + Welsh 'gwen' = "pale star, blessed star"
    Cairafen - Welsh 'cair' + Chinese 'fen' = "fragrance of the fortress"
    Carwen - Welsh 'caru' + Welsh 'gwen' = "blessed love, beautiful love"
    Rhoswen - Welsh 'rhos' + Welsh 'gwen' = "pale moor, blessed moor"
    Rhosastra - Welsh 'rhos' + Greek 'aster' = "star of the moor"
    Caerian - Welsh 'cae' + Welsh 'arian' = "silver field, field of silver"
    Eoswen - Welsh 'eos' + Welsh 'gwen' = "pale nightingale, blessed nightingale"
    Lystiria - Welsh 'lys' + Welsh 'tir' = "land palace"
    Iridis - Old Norse 'rid' + Old Norse 'dis' = "beautiful goddess"
    Winera - Old Norse 'win' + Greek 'era' = "friend of Hera"
    Theodisia - Greek 'theo' + Old Norse 'win' = "friend of God"
    Cresmilia - Latin 'crescens' + Slavic 'mil' = "growing kindness"
    Linne - Chinese 'lin' + Basque suffix 'ne' = "jade girl, forest girl"
    Minetta - Chinese 'min' + Italian diminutive 'etta' = "little and clever"
    Iriera - Old Norse 'rid' + Greek 'era' = "beautiful as Hera"
    Gwendis - Welsh 'gwen' + Old Norse 'dis' = "pale goddess, blessed goddess"
    Ruhana - Chinese 'ru' + Arabic 'hana' = "scholar of happiness, one who is like to happiness"

    Boys
    Rubran - Chinese 'ru' + Welsh 'bran' = "raven scholar"
    Cadmor - Welsh 'cad' + Welsh 'mor' = "great battle"
    Braithmael - Welsh 'braith' + Welsh 'mael' = "speckled prince"
    Dellan - Welsh 'del' + Chinese 'lan' = "pretty orchid"
    Hendre - Welsh 'hen' + Welsh 'de' = "old south"
    Finlan - Welsh 'fin' + Chinese 'lan' = "white orchid"
    Asterin - Greek 'aster' + French suffix 'in' = "belonging to a star"

    Another NB: some names might be names in use already - sorry if so!

    Some of these are wonderful! I wish they were legitimate names. Love Asterin, Asterwen, Iridis, Linne, Cresmilia...
