    Another vote for Marian Illyria. It works very well, and strikes a great balance. You have the Robin Hood, maritime & mystical elements to Marian-- a great "normal" choice! I like the 4-3-4-1 syllable count and the stresses all fall in the right place.

    Now quick, go register her!

    Aphrodite Marian Illyria is quite pretty. Plus the initials spelling AMIE is adorable. Congrats!

    Aphrodite Marian Illyria is gorgeous!!! (Well ok, either way is gorgeous but this is my favorite.), I like the spacing of Marian in between the 4 syllable names for flow, and let's face it, I like that it spells a word. Yay Roo! Congrats on finding her three perfect names! <3

    Excellent choice Mr Otter. Marian is substantial and beautiful. It rounds out the name perfectly and it's very blue-green.

    At first I preferred Aphrodite Illyria Marian, because Illyria ripples along and Marian has a settling quality that's nice at the end of a name.
    But taking your last name into consideration, I like Aphrodite Marian Illyria. That way the more exotic Aphrodite Illyria isn't a separate unit from the more "normal" Marian Els. It's ABAB rather than AABB. Plus, I really see the appeal of those adorable initials.
    On the other hand, one could argue against putting Illyria and Els up against each other because of the A and the E running together... Just to be fussy.

    Both are great Otter. It's hard to choose.

    Congrats Ottilie, your boyfriend and Roo for picking such a wonderful name! I absolutely love both combos, though I would pick Aphrodite Marian Illyria. Marian's beginning as well as ending with a consonant makes it clear where the other names start and end; the "e" in Aphrodite runs into the "i" in Illyria a bit. Normally I don't really care about initials but AIME and AMIE are both so sweet! (I'm taking French at school so I noticed right away)

    It must feel so great to be [almost] there!
