    Revising my name lists. Help!

    I'm just not feeling a lot of the names on my list anymore. They're not terrible, they're just not...great. I like interesting, unique, look-at-me first names with interesting, generally positive meanings. My middle names tend to be more traditional and serious with historical meanings, but I'm not so stuck on that anymore.

    I still *love* Ksenia, Cosima and Caspian. I'd like to move away from the "C/K" names because it gets a little repetitive after awhile! I'm having a particularly difficult time with boys' names.

    Names I like, but aren't on my signature list yet:
    Merida
    Eileen
    Maeve
    Saoirse
    Lyra
    Aderyn
    Aerona
    Linnea
    Bryony
    Ceridwen
    Carys
    Elysia


    Ronan
    Ciaran


    Signature names:
    Élodie Rosamund Clara~Ksenia Margaret Jane~Beatrix Anna-Louise~Aurelia Charlotte~Eloise Matilda~Genevieve Amaya~Coralie June~Cosima ???
    Augustus Johann Milo~Cyrus Donner~Albert George~Emery Thaddeus~Alistair Everett~Caspian Hugo
    Proud furmom to:
    Pepper, Kuno, Mia, Rosalind, Gwendolen & Cecily
    Currently loving:
    Elysia Maeve~Marina Isolde~Linnea Violetta~Minerva Sophronia~Merida Ianthe~Eleni Finola
    Tiernan Hugo~Felix Lysander~Orion Casimir~Caspian Milo~Evander Anslem~Leonidas Gavin

    Well I’m glad to hear that Ksenia isn’t going anywhere. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. (I have such a girl crush on Ksenia Solo and her character Kenzie in Lost Girl - but I just don’t ever see me seriously considering it).

    I love these names that you are considering:
    Merida, Maeve, Elysia, Ceridwen & Linnea

    You could also consider:
    Lyonesse, Mavis, Talitha, & Iris.

    Your “new" boys list isn’t quite as exciting to me. I do really like some of your old ones. Have you considered Cedric, Thiago and Torsten?

    But when I see your signature, I see different names. From your signature I really like Marina Isolde, Elysia Maeve and Cosima Helene. But from your post I like Elodie Rosamund Clara and Caspian Hugo.

    Yes, I posted this a week ago and didn't get any replies, so I did some looking by myself. Ksenia Solo is so gorgeous and also incredibly talented. That's where I found the name, but I'm also half Russian-Jewish, so I like the origin of the name.

    Lyonesse--hmmm, intersting. Is it pronounced like "lioness"?
    Mavis--Too masculine for me
    Talitha--I like it! Unfortunately, it's quite similar to my name. Same beginning, end vowel sound, and number of syllables.
    Iris--I've always loved irises! I tried to change my name to Iris when I was little. :P

    My girls' list:
    Aderyn
    Aerona
    Anthea
    Basilia
