    First name for...

    Hey!

    I’m loving Ianthe (eye-Ann-thee) right now! I wouldn’t use it as a first name, but I love it as a middle. What first names would you put with the middle name Ianthe?

    TIA!

    One of my own favourites, I adore Ianthe! Personally, I tend to lean toward the ee-ANN-theh pronunciation, as it's softer in sound. I do also like (and use too, being the more likely English pronunciation) the eye-ANN-thee way, though I do find it harder to pair combos with this pronunciation (perhaps as it tends to take out all names containing both a prominent EE and a long I sound.)

    I'm not sure on your style generally, but I'll give it a go (based on the long I pronunciation of course, as you like)..
    Sabine Ianthe
    Willa Ianthe
    Vivian Ianthe
    Cora Ianthe
    Georgia Ianthe
    Eliana Ianthe
    Anouk Ianthe
    Juno Ianthe -- this is one I myself adore, though I wonder if together it's too "Greek/Roman Mythology"...
    Mila Ianthe
    Isobel Ianthe -- I like the alliteration, and it has great flow.
    Tess Ianthe
    Magdalene Ianthe
    Eva Ianthe -- the long EE on each end of this combo I think actually works really nicely.
    Florence Ianthe -- probably the best here in regard to flow.

    I think it's a totally useable first name, just saying Don't feel you have to stick it in the middle because it's different. It's beautiful!
