    Niobe pr . Ny - oh - bee ( althought i pr . different ) pretty
    Briseis pr . bri-say-is ( see above ) pretty

    Persephone nice but will be difficult
    Juliet nice

    Nemea ( someone amazing suggest this to me with the nn Lion ) awful
    Lyonesse- horrid

    I know that a lot might seem strange to you but iam okay with them .

    Like the other list , you can be as brutal as you want

    Hopefully after that i can make my top 10 .

    combos or suggestions are always welcome .

    Thanks in advance .[/QUOTE]

    Your style is very different from mine so I don't really like any of them. Isabella and Juliet are the only ones I am neutral about.

    I like Juliet and Isolde best. These are unusual without being too off the wall, in my opinion.

    Aphrodite - love: different, pretty, but recognisable and pronounceable.
    Anastasia - I adore this name; but worry that I am too un-European (lol) to use it
    Artemis - this is brilliant! (For a boy I presume)
    Isabella - this is pretty for a middle name - I think it's too common for a first name for you. Isabel might work better as a middle, as most of these names are quite long, and Isabella might make the name look too 'heavy'.
    Dysis - not sure about this - the word 'dy' (die) is a bit off-putting to me.
    Eleusis - how would you go about pronouncing this?
    Niobe - I would hesitate if you're going to pronounce it differently - it will prove difficult for you and Niobe. I looove this name pronounced the original way though.
    Briseis - I think you'll have a lot of pronunciation difficulties.
    Cassandra - love this name. Sophisticated but still fun.
    Elektra - prefer Electra, but still not a huge fan. Prefer Echo.
    Persephone - I adore this name, but worry that poor little Persephone would be called "purse-phone" because not everyone is very cultured in the myths... still a beautiful name and not quite enough to put me off it
    Pandora - I love this! I worry about "Pandora's box" jokes, but it's so beautiful. I think the jewellery line Pandora will help 'normalise' the name. I like the nn Pan.
    Juliet - beautiful, but unfortunately becoming more popular
    Nemea - not a huge fan I'm afraid.
    Lyonesse - not a huge fan again, sorry. I LOVE Lysander for a boy, however. WDYT?
    Lupin - VERY Harry Potter; I love!
    Iole vs Isolde - definitely prefer Isolde - absolutely stunning.
    Hekate - can't get over the 'Heck' sound; and it also looks a bit like 'hate' to me.
    Orseis - this would get pronounced 'orses' (like horses without the 'h') a LOT.

    My favourites:
    Lysander (suggestion)
    Best of luck!

    Isabella - Meh, its okay
    Dysis - Interesting. I think its kind of pretty
