I really like Cleopatra Sophia Selene, Cleopatra Veronika Yvaine and Cleopatra Cissea Selene, they're all so wonderfully and the names are gorgeous. As long as Cleo and Selene aren't right next to each other, I don't think that the association will be too hefty and the names are stunning together, so I wouldn't say it's a problem anyway. But I have Alexander *name* Helios on my own list, so I guess I'm slightly biased :D
Cleopatra Cissea Josephine
Cleopatra Eira Giselle
Cleopatra Eyja Selene
Cleopatra Sága Celeste
Cleopatra Sophia Undomiel
Gwen; thanks, I love Cleopatra Sophia Noor, Cleopatra Atalanta Celeste and Cleopatra Laurel Ondine!
Tori; Interesting that you don't think Persephone's overpowering. To me that's such a heavy, powerful name. I like Cleopatra Guinevere Laurel a lot, thank you!
Boy&girl; Thank you!
Castles; I like Cleopatra Giselle Veronika.
Whirlie; Nah, I'm thinking more like... Kent, I guess. I like Ursula and Morwenna, but not with Cleopatra. Belphoebe, Ondine and Una could all be middles though!
Sorceress; I like Cleopatra Melusine Daphne a lot.
Zelia; Yay, great! I've got you on my side, then I'm content. I think Cleo and Selene sound gorgeous together (as do Alexander and Helios, by the way!). Oh, I love your combos! My heart fluttered at Cleopatra Sophia Undomiel and Celopatra Eira Giselle! Saga Celeste is absolutely stunning too! Thanks so much!
I've been trying to find a fitting place for Hespera, and I think she needs to go with Cleopatra or Zenobia. What do we think of Cleopatra Hespera Selene or Cleopatra Hespera Giselle?
I love Cleopatra Hespera Selene!
Hespera is so winterey to me, fitting for a little girl making snow angels in the front yard, and catching snowflakes as they fall. And Selene is so magical, and sparkly. Glistening moons, and shimmery silver light. I think it pairs well with Cleopatra. Giselle is gorgeous too, but Hespera Selene is definitely magical.
I like Cleopatra Hespera Ondine, and Cleopatra Veronika Hesper too.
In my humble personal opinion, Cleopatra and Hespera don't really go together at all. I just get completely opposite feelings and imagery from these names. Hespera is heather and honey, and she'd be smashing with one of your airy woodsy choices like Gwenllian! Cleo is gold leaf and red velvet, fire and passion. When you write your imagery, I can see the little seaside sprite in her, sunken pirate treasure and ropes of mermaid pearls, as well as the haunted soul on a ocean cliffside swathed in a hooded cloak. But none of these images coincide with Hespera for me. I think of names like Vashti for the red and gold, Tamar for the fire and passion, Nerissa or Alcyone for the seaside girl, Melusine for the mermaid pearls, and Elbereth or Aradia for the mysterious shadow figure. Don't know if I'm making any sense :)
Aww, sessh. Hespera feels so wintery to me, but I definitely see what you mean. I think Alcyone would be lovely with Cleopatra.
What about Cleopatra Alcyone Niniane, or Cleopatra Sophia Celeste, or Cleopatra Melusine Veronika? So many possible combinations.
