I love the name Persephone and I was just wondering how you could place it in a sibset, particularly an all girl sibset. So what would you name Persephone's sisters?
So far I have Nell, Viola and Mary Grace but these are just ideas.
what names come to mind when you think of Persephone?

Persephone has that huge connection to Greek mythology that Nell, Viola, and Mary Grace do not have. They're more along the lines of vintage and would sound so out of place next to Persephone, imo. I think that if you're going to go out of the box with Persephone, you might as well go out of the box with her sister's names as well! They don't necessarily have to be from Greek myths. I think maybe something Irish/Gaelic could sound wonderful, especially if the names are connected by their meanings. (Orlaith meaning "golden princess" would make sense, considering Persephone is considered more beautiful than even Aphrodite and she is the queen of the Underworld.)
Other examples, Caroun means "springtime," Rabia means "spring," and Persephone was associated as the goddess of Spring growth. Also associated with the harvest, you could possibly use Arista which means "harvest" and is of Greek origin. Flower names would be perfect. Amarantha and Persephone sound amazing together!

I agree with the others. Use odd names with an odd name (if that makes sense).
Persephone and Zipporah
Persephone and Astoria
Persephone and Eglantine
Persephone and Andromeda
Persephone and Fiametta
Persephone and Apollonia
Persephone and Romilly
Persephone and Tallulah
Persephone and Sophronia
Persephone and Gwyneth
Persephone and Amaryllis
Persephone and CeridwenI can't think of any witty name quotes, so this will have to do.
