For the Psuedonym

I'm attempting to rename myself, as my first name is too oft mispronounced and my surname is too common in the publishing world. The names below have either a meaning or family tie of importance to me.
  1. Berenice
    • Origin:

      Greek
    • Meaning:

      "she who brings victory"
    • Description:

      A name with a surprising amount of history--it was the name of the wife of Ptolemy I of Egypt, occurs in the New Testament, and belonged to a fourth century saint. In the US, it has long been spelled and pronounced Bernice. Nicknames include Bernie, Berry, Binnie and Bunny.
  2. Berenike
    • Copper
      • Eber
        • Edom
          • Ezry
            • Faust
              • Origin:

                Latin
              • Meaning:

                "fortunate one"
              • Description:

                Because the legendary Faust sold his soul to the devil, few parents would choose this for a child, although Fausto is commonly heard in Italy and Spain.
            • Genevieve
              • Origin:

                English from French
              • Meaning:

                "tribe woman"
              • Description:

                Genevieve is derived from the Germanic medieval name Genovefa, or Kenowefa, which consists of the elements kuni, meaning "kin", and wefa, meaning "woman." The medieval saint Genevieve, patroness of Paris, defended the city against Attila the Hun through her rational thinking, courage and prayer.
            • Gideon
              • Origin:

                Hebrew
              • Meaning:

                "hewer; or, having a stump for a hand"
              • Description:

                Gideon is a no-longer neglected Old Testament name, but still makes an excellent choice for parents looking to move beyond such overused biblicals as Benjamin and Jacob. In the Old Testament, Gideon was a judge called on by God to rescue the Jews from the Midianites, and the name was popular among the Puritans.
            • Greer
              • Origin:

                Scottish, contraction of surname Gregor; Latin
              • Meaning:

                "alert, watchful"
              • Description:

                This attractive Scottish surname choice, has a certain amount of glamour thanks to feisty British-born red-haired forties Academy Award winner Greer Garson, who was born Eileen Evelyn Greer Garson--Greer was her Irish mother's maiden name). Greer was chosen much more recently by Kelsey Grammer for his daughter and by Brooke Shields in the Grier form. As a surname, it's associated with feminist writer/activist Germaine Greer.
            • Gershom
              • Gnae
                • Gnaea

                    • Hezekiah
                      • Origin:

                        Hebrew
                      • Meaning:

                        "God gives strength"
                      • Description:

                        This name of an influential Old Testament king of Judah is one that would challenge even the most adventurous biblical name-seeker, but it does have the modernizing short forms Zeke or Kiah.
                    • Ira
                      • Origin:

                        Hebrew
                      • Meaning:

                        "watchful one"
                      • Description:

                        Ira is one of the shortest, non-biblical sounding Old Testament names, belonging to one of King David's thirty 'mighty warriors.' It was widely used in the US from the 1880s to the early 1930s (it was Number 57 on the Social Security list in 1881), but fell off completely in 1993. Although Ira is also a retirement-account acronym, it's back on the table for those seeking a short biblical name for their sons, and reentered the US Top 1000 in 2016. A musical namesake is lyricist Ira Gershwin (born Israel), a literary one is Ira Levin, and there are two prominent Iras hosting NPR radio shows.

                            • Meaning:

                              "beloved of the Lord"
                            • Description:

                              Blink and you’ll miss that the first I in Jedidiah was swapped for an E.
