    Athénaïs or Athenaïs is a beautiful name, and its uniqueness would be attention-grabbing. If you live in the UK though, there might be a lot of spelling or pronunciation issues, and the accents would often be forgotten or ignored. You could get a feel for how often spelling/pronunciation would be an issue by saying it out loud to people you know and asking them how they'd spell it, or getting them to read it off a page.

    Nicknames: Thea (tay-ah), Anaïs (though this is a name in its own right), Issie (from the ending -is)

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Scarlett, Portia, Felicity, Juliet
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy

    I know an Athenais! Well, not personally but there is a celebrity here named Athenais Nega. I think its a very beautiful and unusual name.

    I love Athénaïs a lot! I think it's beautiful and sophisticated, I have it on my own list. I think it goes really well with Appoline and Arabella - continuing the A theme of your daughter's names is a cute idea. I can't think of any nicknames, but I like the suggestion of Anaïs.

    I have Athénaïs Lenore on my list, but am not sure if you would like Lenore or not. Some more suggestions:

    Athénaïs Sophia
    Athénaïs Cordelia
    Athénaïs Louisa
    Athénaïs Miriam
    Athénaïs June
    Athénaïs Elizabeth
    Athénaïs Victoria
    Athénaïs Emilia
    Athénaïs Isabelle
