Sibling for Lysander
I don't actually have any children at the moment. But I do love the name Lysander, and I couldn't picture naming my first son any other name. What I was wondering was if anyone had suggestions for a sibling name that goes well with Lysander. I thought of Aurora, and Astoria. I love Aurora, but I guess I don't think it flows too well. And nobody I know can even pronounce Astoria. For some reason I can't think of any other boy names either. For some reason Klaus comes to mind, but my boyfriend can't stand that name. Could anyone possibly help?

Firstly, Lysander may very well be my favorite name of all time, so great choice.
Clio -I like Clio with Lysander because they are both of Greek origin. Clio means "glory" and is the name of the muse of history.
What about Gwendolyn or Ariel?
I also really like Everett and Nathaniel. I think they sound nice with Lysander even though they aren't the same style. Maybe Rafael? Daniel?

Lysander is beautiful, romantic and magical! I hope you get a chance to use it.
Astoria is difficult to pronounce? Since when? It's uh-stor-ree-ah/aas-stor-ree-ah (the first syllable being like the word as), no? Aurelia is similar in sound and goes well with Lysander.
Suggestions for siblings:
Other Shakespeare names :

Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Scarlett, Felicity, Juliet
Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Oliver, Darcy, Orlando

From your list, I like Aurora, Rafael and Nathaniel. They go best with Lysander in my opinion.
Lysander and Ophelia would make a gorgeous sibset. I love this name, and think it goes well with Harry. (Harry Lysander is one of the combinations mentioned in my sibset.) Other names you could consider are:
Lysander and Adeline
Lysander and Beatrice
Lysander and Amalia
Lysander and Tabitha
Lysander and Theodora
Lysader and Balthazar
Lysander and Julian
Lysander and Octavius
Lysander and Lucian (this one might be a bit of a stretch since both names begin with 'L')
Lysander and ClaudioTeenberry, amateur photographer, name enthusiast & royalist

☆ Leo Xavier + Alexander George + Isaac Peregrine + Harry Lysander + Jasper Ellis Theodore☆I pronounce the ending of Peregrine as "green" and not "grin"
Antonia + Felicity + Carlos
Songbird + Morning + Catalene + Remus + Marcellus
