What about Ismene? Pronounced Iz-mah-nay. It's my favourite Greek name.♫ I found a video from back when I was three, you set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me, its the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs... ♫

Gaia -- love it! You're saying it guy-ah right? I saw someone on here once who was trying to say it gee-uh.
Dylan -- Dislike this on a girl
Lucretia -- I think it has a beautiful sound, but the association is a little iffy for me
Hero -- I actually really like this one
Nausicaa -- I just think of the anime Nausicaa Valley of the Wind
Pandora -- I'll use Persephone, but Pandora is all negative to me. She literally is responsible for all the worlds hardships
Antigone -- I like the sound, but you'll probably get a lot of people saying anti-gone
Avalon -- So pretty! I love this one
Briseis -- I'm sure about this one
Arachne -- love it, but I prefer Ariadne
Amalthea -- Love Thea but dislike Amal-
Selena -- I think it's a little close, but I still like it a lot
Andromeda -- total GP for me ^_^
Victoria -- very tame compared to everything else on here. I like it though
Jupiter -- I don't like it on a girl. Jupiter is Jove/Zeus planet. I don't think he'd appreciate it on a girl. Why not Juno?
Guinevere -- as you can see on my signature...I LOVE it
Hermione -- I like it pronounced the Greek way, which is similar to hair-mee-oh-nee, but I think most people with think Harry Potter
Iris -- I really like it
Orion -- This is a boy.
Osiris -- I love it for a boy, but this is not a girl name
Electra -- I like it but I think it sounds a bit stripper
Diana -- very pretty
Xanthe -- LOVE
Morrigan -- LOVE I considered this one a while
Demeter -- I like it okay
Ligeia -- pretty
Eurydice -- nms
Igraine -- GP again. Love the sound
I like your taste, but honestly, I can't understand why you put some of the names on different genders (Osiris, Orion) when they're strong MALE characters, Please don't do that.

Gaia- Okay, might have some pronounciation issues. Kaia is prettier.
Dylan- Like this one a lot.
Hero- I think it might be better on an animal than a person.
Nausicaa- Sounds like Nautica... or nausea.
Pandora- LOVE this one!
Antigone- Might be pronounced an-TI-gon, which makes it sound like some kind of spray.
Avalon- Sweet, but reminds me of a car service.
Briseis- Not loving the sound.
Arachne- This is the girl who became a spider, correct?
Amalthea- I actually think I like this one a bit.
Selena - Might be too close to your name, but still sounds gorgeous.
Andromeda- Pretty, pretty, pretty!
Victoria- One of my all-time favorites!
Jupiter - Don't love it on a person. Maybe Juno is a better bet?
Guinevere- Cute, especially with nn Gwen.
Hermione- The Potter connection might be too strong.
Iris- Like it.
Orion- Sounds masculine, but I kind of love it!
Osiris- Not a very good name for a person. Like it better on a dog, maybe?
Diana- Love this.
Xanthe- Cute, maybe a little weird, but cute.
Morrigan- I love this, and I never thought I would.
Ligeia - Kind of cool.
Eurydice- Sounds like Eunice. Don't like it.
Igraine- Like migraine?

Gaia -- The meaning is nice but I honestly don't like the sound of this one.
Dylan -- Boy, yes. Girl, no.
Lucretia -- Sounds evil to me. nms.
Hero -- It could work as quirky middle name for a boy. I know in Greek mythology Hero was female, I just don't think it would work today.
Nausicaa -- Not a fan, I don't find it very attractive.
Pandora -- Love. Had this on my list for awhile but I'm not brave enough to use it.
Antigone -- It's okay, I feel like it would get a lot of pronunciation problems, usable maybe as a middle.
Avalon -- It alright, it's not something I would personally use but it is usable.
Briseis -- I kind of like this one, It has a nice sound.
Arachne --Not feeling this one at all.
Amalthea -- Same as above.
Selena - I feel it may be a bit to close to your name but it's very pretty.
Andromeda -- I like it!
Victoria -- Like.
Jupiter - I dislike this name in general, male or female.
Guinevere -- Love!
Hermione -- Can't get into this one, never liked it.
Iris -- Gorgeous, my favorite girl name!
Orion -- Love for a boy.
Osiris -- It would work only on a pet I think.
Electra -- I like the sound but I don't really think it's usable.
Diana -- Pretty.
Xanthe -- Like, very cool name.
Morrigan -- It's alright.
Demeter -- Dislike.
Ligeia - Same.
