Snow and Stars: Replacing Hespera
I need to replace a name on my list. After much back and forth and thoughts and conversations, we're letting Hespera go as a first name. I still very much want to use her as a middle, so I'm searching for a name that will work with Hespera (as none of the names I've already got works too well with her, in my opinion).
Hespera's snow, stars, throws, fairy lights, fires, cinnamon, hot chocolate, harps and joy.
I don't want names that begin with A, G, I, and T, and I'd like to avoid names beginning with C, E, M, O and P.
Our girl is named A p h r o d i t e. Possible brother and sister names are Casimir, Endymion, Galileo, Oberon, Orpehus and Théoden; Callisto, Isis, Morgana, Pandora and Tinúviel.
Thought number one is Vespera, this would obviously be instead of Hespera.
This is my list:
So which of these do you like, and do you have any suggestions for me (us)?
... and thanks for reading and keeping up with my craziness!!My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

Instead of Hespera I love Belladonna , Elbereth , Sylvana & Vespertine .
Some new suugestions ( sorry for any previous repits ) :
Catkin : (pronounced "KAHT-ken")
Kore : Kore is a Greek name meaning "maiden." The goddess Kore is later known as Persephone when she is taken into the Underworld.
Erigone. Another myth identifies Virgo as Erigone, the daughter of Icarius of Athens. She hung herself after the death of her father, and Dionysus placed them both in the night sky.
Demeter/Ceres. Virgo is strongly associated with Kore/Persephone's mother, the goddess of the harvest. Demeter might be Greek for "barley," and Ceres means "to grow."
Glimmer. One of the nicknames for this constellation is the "dark sign."
I hope you like some
EDIT : I just saw that you want names not starting by some letters . Just delete the names with the letters you dont want'and so, being young and dipt in folly, I fell in love with melancholy,.'- Edgar Allan Poe

Ooo, Vespera! Love! I've actually always wanted to suggest that for you, but since you were so in love with Hespera, it seemed kinda pointless. And Vespertine is gorgeous, too. I actually can't decide which one I like better.
But if you really want to use Hespera in the middle, then Vespera/Vespertine is obviously not an option. Out of your current list, I love Juno, Sylvana, Verdande, and Zephyrine and think they would pair very well with Hespera. Halcyon/Halcyone, too, but I'm not sure I really like it in a combo with Hespera. Alcyone would be better, but that's an "A" name, so that won't work.
The only new suggestion I have for you at the moment is Euterpe, the muse of music and lyric poetry.
