    I have a challenge...

    ... Or at least it's a challenge for me. Can you make suggestions of names similar (in style) to each of my top 7 names for each gender. So names similar to Caspian, names similar to Phoenix etc.

    Caspian
    Phoenix
    Ptolemy
    Artemus
    Lorenzo
    Nikolai
    Evander

    Pandora
    Evanthe
    Beatrix
    Rowenna
    Phaedra
    Morgana
    Arabella

    But! There are some rules (this is the challenging bit). They have to be 7 letters long (if anything else 8), and for girls, preferably not end in an -a. Good luck (and thanks)!

    Mister Men

    Fae, Rue, Lyra, Clio, Clara, Lilac, Maeve, Pandora, Evanthe, Beatrix, Rowenna, Georgiana, Constance, Guinevere
    Little Misses

    Challenge accepted. I tried to go for similar sound as well as similar style:

    Caspian - Casimir
    Phoenix - ... man this one's hard.
    Ptolemy - Anatolio
    Artemus - Arturas
    Lorenzo - Fiorenzo
    Nikolai - Nicodemus
    Evander - Leander

    I really struggled with the not-ending-in-a rule, so sorry in advance.

    Pandora - Panthea
    Evanthe - Ariadne
    Beatrix - Lettice
    Rowenna - Lowenna
    Phaedra - Adrienne (as add-ree-en)
    Morgana - Morrigan
    Arabella - Amaranthe

    Some of them I have left out because I couldn't think of anything different from what @renrose said

    Caspian - Cassius, Cassian
    Phoenix - Gryphon/Griffin (because they're both mythological birds)
    Artemus - Perseus, Leander
    Evander - Ambrose

    Pandora - Theodora, Isadora (I know they end in an a, but it's really hard!)
    Evanthe - Amaryllis, Hyacinth (I know, too long), Juniper
    Rowenna - Ceridwen, Morwenna
    Phaedra - Phoebe

    Apologies, I kind of failed at following the rules
