    3 or 4 Syllable names for Olive MN

    I'm looking for three or four syllable names to go with middle name Olive.

    We already have a Phoebe, and her middle name, Patricia, is for my maternal grandmother. Olive is my paternal grandmother, and we'd use it as a middle name for a future girl.

    I/we liked Phoebe because it's ancient, mythological, vintage, quirky, connected to nature (a type of bird found where we live) and literature (Shakespeare, Hawthorne, Salinger), soft but lively, and has a lovely meaning. So really, it's hard to find something comparable that also happens to sound good with Olive!

    Nature names are a no-no, because they sound too descriptive with Olive, but everything else is a go. We would like something that has some connection to history/mythology/literature/art, even if it's obscure. Not really concerned with having the same "feeling" as Phoebe, i.e., the soft quirkiness.

    Other names we liked but will not use with Olive, for various reasons:
    Juniper
    Ruby
    Eve
    Paloma
    Ariadne
    Lavender
    Vesper
    Lydia
    Hazel
    Violet
    Valerie
    Bianca
    Inez
    Iris
    Minerva
    Jacqueline
    Roberta
    Frida
