Ottilie - I love Aphrodite for little roo.
My faves from you list
Aphrodite Illyria Rose - but maybe this is too much like her original name & therefore doesn't quite have the qualities you are looking for to match her spirit
Aphrodite Tabitha Wren - just beautiful though Tabitha to me is dark green & velvety not sea green & light.
Some other suggestions
Aphrodite Sylvia Wren
Aphrodite Sylvie Willow
Aphrodite Lucy Miranda - these middles are all light to me
Aphrodite Felicity Lark
Good luck, there are some amazing suggestions on this thread. Little too will be well named when you have decidedMum to Jude Michael

Aphrodite Illyria Celeste is stunning in writing, sound, and image. However, I do understand the desire for two 'normal' middles to go along with the more fanciful Aphrodite.
I'm somewhat rooting to see either Miranda or Vanessa somewhere in her name - Miranda because she's such a great Shakespearian namesake and Vanessa because she's a family name for you and I've seen you mention how much you like that name is other pepole's posts. Both names are familiar yet complex and beautiful and give me images of a vast, beautiful sea.
I do like Cressida, Nerissa, Viola, and Olivia for their Shakespearean nods. However, Olivia and Viola give me dissonant imagery - Olivia is so earthy and Viola is, well, so purple. Cressida and Nerissa have the proper imagery for me, but I rather like that Vanessa and Miranda don't have their roots in Greek mythology; they don't bring a lot of novelty to the table, so to speak. Most people know these names (especially Cressida) from Shakespeare though, so perhaps I'm being silly (and a double dose of mythology is definitely not a bad thing!). Aphrodite Cressida does sound very nice. A final nature/celestial (Willow, Laurel, Celeste, Estelle) or family (Lettice, Poline) name would be a great capper, as others have said. Is Elaine still on the table? She could also be a nice third name to infuse the combo with a bit of Arthurian legend. With such beautiful names, you really can't go wrongAfter two years of trying and one miscarriage,

I am still so deeply attached to Illyria, so I'll try to come up with some normal-as-possible-yet-still-magical ideas to round out the combo. I think Wren, Laurel, Rose, and Olivia match this description the best, although I find Rose completely incongruous with the imagery.
Aphrodite Illyria Eve - the new Pandora?
Aphrodite Illyria Isobel
Aphrodite Illyria Phoebe
Aphrodite Illyria Selene - so silky! I love it
Aphrodite Illyria Faye
Aphrodite Illyria Marion
Aphrodite Illyria Meredith - love the pithy sound, the nautical meaning, and the lilting 4-4-3 meter
Weren't Elaine and Louise on your list of normal names?
Nautical green/blue oceanic magic:
Nerissa (my favorite of those previously mentioned)
Waverly (literal, I know, but I loved it paired with Morgana and Zephyrine)
It's always so hard for me to come up with "normal" names. I guess I have both feet firmly planted in Midsummer Night's Dream-landZion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____
