    If you want to use a different letter, what about x?

    Xia? Xiomara, Xyleena, Xylona?

    If the last thread of suggestions didn't bring anything up that really struck you, I'd forget the "do I like this name enough to use it" stuff and take a different tack. E.g. actively looking for references and/or meanings you like - for example, if you're into Shakespeare, look up Shakespearean names [like the suggestion of Hero, btw!], or if you're into TV shows, look up the full names of some characters you really admire. You could maybe pencil in Iolanthe as the middle name and look for a name that you love in the combo, or, better still, just toss all your rules, start with a clean slate, and gradually reintroduce some of them when you feel you're getting somewhere. It definitely sounds like they're making it difficult!

    PS. I recall thinking that Phaedra [FAY-drah] seemed like a good fit for you - did you not like it / drop it? I can't remember.

    Also, I skipped your list - oops! I really like Avalon, Aravis, Kerensa, and Iolanthe. Iolanthe could work as a FN, but I suspect you'd need a nickname, and with Io off the table and Annie uncertain you'd have limited options. Iola, Lola, and Thea spring to mind.

    Congratulations! I'm sorry to hear you're struggling to find a name, though, but I'm sure you'll get there. You'll find a name you love! My favourite name from your list is Cressida! It's so beautiful! I also like Una and Juno. They're both so sweet! Good luck!
