So we both love the idea of a little Sadie. It feels so spunky and sweet at the same time. We've been planning on using Sadie as a nickname for Isadora. My only concern with that is if we use Isadora, it takes Isabeau, Pandora and Thora out of the running, which makes me sad. Are there any other names you can think of that Sadie could work with? I won't use just Sadie, it's a nickname only to me. I don't want a Sarah/Sara, although it's a beautiful name. I've been considering Serafina nn Sadie, which doesn't seem too much of a stretch. Any other suggestions?
Can't you use it for Isabeau? You will need to choose between Isabeau and Isadora at some point, and because of Pandora, it seems like Isadora will fall off your list.
I love Isadora!! I would go with her!!

I'd go with Isadora it's so lush.
This is a beautiful list and I love Melisande, Cassandra & Lysandra

Corisande and Lysandra are names I'll have to think about. I love them both, but never really considered them for the list. They've always been on the writing list. Melisande is a favorite, but SO's longest relationship (ended very badly) was with a Mel, so he's not fond of Mel names. As always, thanks for the beautiful suggestions. :)
Tori: We love Isadora, too. Pandora and Thora are closer to my heart, but Isadora is a serious contender, and when I toss in that adorable Sadie nickname, she really makes Thora and Pandora fight for the top spot. Sadine is interesting, I'm not familiar with it. I'll have to look it up and see what comes up. Cassandra is great, always loved everything about her, but I think the battle with the Cas/si nickname is one I'd lose. I'm hoping to have a Caspian nn Cas, so Cassandra is out. Thanks for the suggestions!
Rollo: I love all three of those as well. :) Lysandra especially is going in the pile of names to think over.
