    Re: Edwardian Names - Araminta, Artemisia, Aspasia, Anastasi

    Yet another excellent list! I was particularly interested in middle name pairings with "Aspasia" -- a Victorian/Edwardian name that was often given the nickname of "Spash."

    Many thanks, Elea!

    Re: Edwardian Names - Araminta, Artemisia, Aspasia, Anastasi

    Boy, those Edwardians sure loved the ancient Greek names (Araminta is the only English choice in the bunch). These names are multi-syllable so I prefer one or two syllables in the middle spot unless the pairing is just too divine to veto! Great list, Elea!
    Araminta Catherine - Gorgeous
    Araminta Eliza
    Araminta Elizabeth
    Araminta Grace - Love the way it sounds!
    Araminta Lavinia
    Araminta Louisa
    Araminta Rose - Beautiful pairing!

    Artemisia Julia

    Aspasia Elizabeth
    Aspasia Irene
    Aspasia Jane
    Aspasia Louisa
    Aspasia Marguerite

    Anastasia Clare
    Anastasia Eliza
    Anastasia Elizabeth
    Anastasia Emily
    Anastasia Eveline
    Anastasia Frances
    Anastasia Irene
    Anastasia Ivy
    Anastasia Josephine
    Anastasia Katherine
    Anastasia Lily - I like this pairing very much.
    Anastasia Lucy
    Anastasia Magdelene
    Anastasia Margaret
    Anastasia Mary
    Anastasia Matilda
    Anastasia May
    Anastasia Ruby
    Anastasia Violet
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Ah! Yes of course! I remember Withycombe saying thta about Aspasia but had completely forgotten. Thanks for reminding me. Spash makes the elaborate Aspasia amusingly whimsical

    There was an entry for an Aspasia born in Egypt but a Greek national (married to an Englishman) but I can't quite make out her middle name. It looks a bit like Agllonki maybe?

    That's a tough one to decipher, all right. Perhaps the census taker misheard or misspelled the name that was given to him? I know that Aggeliki is a common feminine Greek name (the English equivalent being "Angelica").
