    What do you think of these names? Opinions wanted

    Just looking for some opinions on these names. Nicknames in quotations. Some of the nns (like Cassandra nn Cassie, Thaddeus nn Thad, etc) I think are unavoidable, and some (like Artemis nn Missy or Persephone nn Posey) would just be pet names, I'd still probably use their full names most of the time. If you don't like the nns, they aren't set in stone. I'm looking more for opinions on the actual name.
    Girl:
    Artemis "Missy"
    Cassandra "Cassie"
    Cleo
    Elizabeth "Elsie, Libby, Lilibeth"
    Miriam "Miri, Mim, Mimi, Mira"
    Nina
    Persephone "Percy, Sephy, Posey"
    Boys:
    Matthias (I pronounce it kind of like ma-thy-us)
    Perseus "Percy" (PJO anyone?)
    Thaddeus "Thad"
    Also, I have one more question, what siblings would you use with Miriam? I just have a hard time pairing it in a sibset.
    Thanks for your help!

    Artemis - A strong name. Usable, but it would need a softer middle to balance it out
    Cassandra - Very pretty!
    Cleo - Not a personal fan, but it's not a bad choice
    Elizabeth - Great classic name. Only concern would be popularity
    Miriam - To me, it's a little dated but the nn Mimi would be so cute for when she's young
    Nina - I like it! Ages well and has some spunk
    Persephone - Reminds me of Stephanie, but better
    Matthias - Love it! Very handsome and fresh
    Perseus - It might be a little much as a first, but nn Percy is great
    Thaddeus - Lovely-sounding name. Would also work well as a strong middle
    Sibling for Miriam - I think Thaddeus and Persephone work best with it

    Girl:

    Artemis "Missy": Very cute, nickname would suit her when she's little. I prefer Athena

    Cassandra "Cassie": Love! Cassie would work with any age!

    Cleo: Not my style, I prefer Chloe

    Elizabeth "Elsie, Libby, Lilibeth": Unexpected as a first! Definite favorite, other nicknames could be Lizzie, Elle, Ella, Beth, or Isabelle

    Miriam "Miri, Mim, Mimi, Mira": Again, not my style. I love Mira, though

    Nina: I love it pronounced "Nine-a" instead of "Neen-a"

    Persephone "Percy, Sephy, Posey": Very cute twist of Stephanie. I only like Percy on a boy, but I love Posey

    Boys:

    Matthias: Cute, nn Mattie?

    Perseus "Percy": Love love love! (And the books ain't so bad, either! )

    Thaddeus "Thad": Ehh, maybe for a middle

    For Miriam, I'd pair Matthias and Nina

    Good luck!

    @bee49- with Elizabeth, popularity is my concern. The supposed dated-ness of Miriam is my concern too, but I think among the Jaylas and Kaitlyns, Miriam would be fresh. Thanks for all the positive comments!
    @silvercandles-I actually know tons of Athena's (I'm Greek) and it sounds really weird in Greek (it is pronounced more like ah-THEEN-nah); but I haven't met any Artemises. I pronounce Nina Neen-uh, but Nine-uh is cool too. Thanks for all help!

    Anyone else! Comments would be appreciated!

    Artemis - Hate Missy (long story) but I love the name by itself. Have met Athenas bbut no Artemis. A strong, beautiful choice!
    Cassandra - This name has been going back and forth from my list. Love the nn Cassia with it, but there are so many that she'd be able to choose from if she wanted when she was older
    Cleo - Nms, and doesn't exactly fit with your others
    Elizabeth nn Libby - Haven't seen this in the fn spot for a while. Maybe too long? It is popular, but nn Libby or Lilibeth are less common
    Miriam - One of my grandmothers names (in case you were curious, sibset was Libby, Ruth, Miriam, and Etta/Yetta). I think it'd be fresh with some of the names used today. If you're not sure can I suggest Moirah or Mariska.
    Nina - I watch too much Project Runway because all I can think of is Nina Garcia making fun of my clothes
    Persephone - I like it for the same reason as Cassandra

    Matthias - I've only heard it pronounced mah-TAY-hus but I think it's a great name
    Perseus - My fave of your boys!
    Thaddeus - I don't like it as a first. Prefer Matthias

    From your list, Elizabeth works with Miriam. I'd suggest for boys Ezra, Issac, Ephrain, Ellison, Winston, Donovan, and Augustus. Girls names I like with Miriam are Ruth, Begonia, Louisa, Emilia, Esther, Dorothea, and Estelle
    Lady Loves
    Marin + Elula + Salome + Odette + Naomi
    Manly Hugs
    Otis + Mayer + Leander + Ellis + Frank
    Guilty Pleasures
    Cassiopeia + Evander + Orleanna + Sterling
