I consider my name taste be similar(ish) lol
Persephone was a contender for me as well.
I'll admit I know very little about the gods and my mythology is very limited as well (I used to be into it but my memory is horrid).
So, these are solely based on how they sound.
Aurelia (though I saw you said no more A's) was my first option. It was a very strong contender with Cordelia
Ophelia- was my #1 choice had Donovon been a girl.
Helena- I prefer the He-len-uh pn, and think it'd be lovely with Persephone
Sapphira- This is probably my favorite paired with Persephone. I had a friend in highschool named Saphira (she pn it Suh-fear-uh), Sapphira is typically "sa-FYE-ra". Both were on my short list had Donovon been a girl, I considered one of them for Cordelia, but I moved back to the town Saphira is from and thought people would assume she was a namesake, when really I just loved her name... (sorry, I like to talk lol).
Kerensa- I recently fell in love with this but Matt said no without hesitation. Boo.

I haven't bestowed my full-blown-magick list on anyone in quite a while, so here you go!! Sorry for any repeats, or if the descriptions don't apply to you...they're there to remind me why I love these names ^_^ Hope you find something you like!

Delphine - dolphins and delphiniums
Eirene - goddess of peace, daughter of Poseidon
Elentari - elvish, "queen of the stars"
Elidi - "gift of the sun"
Elowen - "elm", which I love. I'm a sucker for tree names.
Evangeline - "bearer of good news," the epically beautiful Longfellow poem and the star (reincarnated firefly) from Princess and the Frog
Faerydae - no idea why I'm so obsessed with this name...I just am
Fairuza - Turkish word for turquoise...bohemian bliss
Faline - "catlike", Bambi's dainty girlfriend (this is part of my dance name!!!)
Fantasia - fan-TAY-zha (Disney) or fan-tah-SEE-ah (operatic); means "imagination"
Farasha - gorgeous sound...means "butterfly" in arabic
Felicity - "good fortune, happiness, luck;" my favorite of the American Girls
Fenestra - means "window"... I own the Fenestra tarot deck and the art is exquisite. I will always associate this name with the briar-rose motif on the back of the cards
Firenze - Italian for Florence and the name of the centaur divination teacher from Harry Potter
Forsythia - dainty yellow flowers and all my favorite sounds
Gwyneira - "white, snow, fair." the ultimate fairytale name in my opinion, as it makes me think of Guinevere and Snow White
Illyria - Shakespearean name that actually refers to an ancient region along the Adriatic Sea.
Lirael - popular theory is that it means "my song" or "my joy"...but really it was made up for the Abhorsen character
Lumiere - means light... I love that it looks and sounds just like soft warm candlelight. I don't like that it's the candelabra from Beauty and the Beast
Luneira - I was told this means moonlight, but I can find no evidence of it, so it's on shaky ground.
Luna - the moon. favorite variation: Luneth
Luthien - elven princess...can be translated "enchantress" in one dialect and "blossom" in another
Melusine - water fairy/freshwater mermaid who lived on the Isle of Avalon

Naima - "tranquil"
Namine - "born from air and water", Kingdom Hearts reference
Nephele - cloud nymph
Nerine - a type of lily, but sounds so much like Nerida or Nerise or all the other nymph/Nereid/"of the sea" sorts of names.
Nerissa - Shakesperean gem meaning "of the sea"
Nimith - "transformation" or more literally "to cause to appear by magic." some confusion over whether or not this is technically a boys' name
Niviera - "stream or river"
Ondine - spirit of the waters, means "little wave," a favorite movie
Ophelia - "help, aid"...the mysterious Shakespearean heroine who spoke the language of herbs
Oriel - "golden", angel of destiny (also a type of window)
Orithyia - nymph, nereid, and wife of the north wind
Paravel - the Narnian castle
Primeveire - French for primrose. not the strongest choice, but so lovely
Reverie - "to dream", one of my favorite pieces of music ever

Sereia - mermaid
Soraya - "bright starlight", the Pleiades
Serenity - peaceful, zen...and Firefly associations
Tanith - Phoenician goddess of the moon
Thalassa - "of the sea"
Thisbe - conflicting info on meaning...could be "where the doves live" or "a vessel;" Pyramus and Thisbe was supposedly the basis for Romeo and Juliet, and their story is also played out in MSND, making them doubly Shakespearean. Thisbe will forever be a spunky, sassy, bohemian punk sort of name for me, due to the Pyramus and Thisbe song from Were the World Mine.
Tifareth - "beauty", the central Sephirah of the Tree of Life. Also Tifa is a Final Fantasy reference
Tinuviel - Luthien's other name, meaning "daughter of the starry twilight" and "nightingale"
Titania - queen of the faeries!! how much more magickal and mischievous can a name get? :P
Virelai - "to turn" or "to twist"...a medieval form of poetry and songs
Vivendel - honeysuckle, and the phonetic similarity to Tolkien's Rivendell makes it sound delightfully elvish to my ears
Wisteria - beautiful, draping, fragrant flower; symbol of devotionZion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
Alice Willow ~ Ophelia Wren ~ Juliet Snow ~ Lucia Pearl ~ Eve Wisteria nn Evie ~ Cosima Rose ~ River Seraphine ~ Elowen Briar
Narnia Rose, Astoria nn Story, Illyria, Serafina, Soraya, Faerydae
