Briseis pr . bri-say-is ( see above ) pretty
Persephone nice but will be difficult

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.
Best of luck!Jemima
