Count me as another vote for Gwenllian Atalanta Elaine! I'm not very good at combinations but I've got some middle name suggestions to throw into the mix perhaps:
Olwen (I remember you considering this for Aphrodite!)
I especially love the idea of Gwenllian Eilonwy Adlais, but all your options are so lovely - good luck!

How very funny! Long before I saw this thread I thought, "Gwenllian and Proserpina are meant for each other." Your description, which I think may be my favorite so far, solidified this feeling. However, when I began to skim responses, what did I see? A suggestion for Proserpina! Gwenllian Proserpina Cyrene and Gwenllian Proserpina Elaine are stunning.
From your list, I adore Gwenllian Circe Eilonwy, although I may prefer Gwenllian Circe Atalanta - it has a more rounded sound while keeping a similar imagery, at least to me. Gwenllian and Circe go together incredibly well.
Other names that I think go well with Gwenllian/your description are Callisto and Artemisia. Suggestions!
Gwenllian Proserpina Clarimond
Gwenllian Proserpina Giselle
Gwenllian Proserpina Florimell
Gwenllian Artemisia Laudine
Gwenllian Artemisia Eilonwy
Gwenllian Artemisia Tamar
Gwenllian Callisto Titania
Gwenllian Callisto Niniane
Gwenllian Callisto Boudicea
Gwenllian Circe Artemisia
Gwenllian Circe Proserpina
Gwenllian Circe Ostana
Gwenllian Ophelia Atalanta
Gwenllian Oenone Lyra
Gwenllian Ostana Terpsichore (Gwenllian the dancing she wolf!)
Gwenllian Silvana Oenone

I wasn't able to think of any combos for Cleopatra, but Gwenllian seems easier.
Gwenllian Artemisia Elaine
Gwenllian Ursula Signe
Gwenllian Terpsichore Silvia/Sylvia (I prefer the Italian Silvia because it reminds me of Rhea Silvia, the mother of Romulus and Remus, and therefore tying in with your wolf dream.)
Gwenllian Ophelia Melusine
Gwenllian Verdande Silvia/SylviaProud mother to William "Liam" Balthazar, Catherine "Cate" Ophelia, Veronica "Vera" Seraphine, and baby number four, arriving September 2017 to complete our family!
