    Ceridwen has a wonderful sound, but depending on where you live, it might be more fitting as a middle name.

    Briar-Rose is purely a fairy tale name to me, not usable on a real person, like Cinderella. kala_way said it perfectly, saying that it's an identifier, but not quite a name. Aurora is a much more usable choice.

    Ceridwen is too outlandish to me. I much prefer Briar-Rose. : )

    What do you think of Briar-Rose? I know a lot of people up here aren't a fan, and think it's unusable. But if you can name your child off of a literary character, a mythological God or Goddess, a celebrity/famous person, or a character from a movie, then I think you can use Briar-Rose. I think sleeping beauty is more known as Aurora anyway.

    Thanks for any replies in advance!
    I would have to say I like Ceridwen best as it's my three year old daughter's name. Though when we found the name it was spelled Cerridwen. Her middle name is Willow (Cerridwen Willow). Briar-Rose is neat, but I can't shake Sleeping Beauty, but that's just because it's not my cup of tea. I think it's totally usable.

    I love Ceridwen. To me, Ceridwen is running through lush forests, and dancing by firelight. She's shimmery and flowy; twirls of gold and silver, flashes of crimson red, hints of copper and orange. Her bright red hair billows around her pale face.

    Briar-Rose and I have a love/hate relationship. Sweet smelling roses lull you into unexpected thorn bushes. Briar-Rose is a beautiful name, but Ceridwen is my favorite.

    I like Ceridwen Eira.

    I love both.
    Honestly I never thought I'd be able to picture a Briar in RL but then I came across a very non-Sleeping-Beauty type character in a book.
    I think I prefer Ceridwen just because Briar-Rose = Thorny Rose and well I'm just not sure I'd want my first name to be Thorny. (equally while I know a quite beautiful Kennedy it's meaning completely turns me off of it as a viable choice for my future children).
