    My favorites of the girls names are Esme, Evangeline, and Aurora. I love "Othello" but Desdemona is not very usable because of the character...she's falsely accused of adultery and murdered, and that's not a good association to bestow upon your little girl. Plus, it means "ill-fated" and has the word "demon" in the middle of it. Here are some combos for my favorites:

    Esme Annabella

    Esme Arabella

    Esme Christine

    Esme Daniella

    Esme Felicity

    Esme Julianne

    Esme Kathleen

    Esme Lavinia

    Esme Leonora

    Esme Veronica

    Esme Vivian

    Aurora Blair

    Aurora Celine

    Aurora Christine

    Aurora Diane

    Aurora Faye

    Aurora Giselle

    Aurora Julianne

    Aurora Kate

    Aurora Louise

    Aurora Lucille

    Aurora Michelle

    Aurora Noelle

    Aurora Paige

    Aurora Phoebe

    Aurora Shea

    Aurora Stephanie

    Aurora Therese

    Elizabeth Aurora is on my own list, if you like that.

    Evangeline is a difficult to match to a middle name. Why not put it in the middle? You'll have more options:

    Alice Evangeline

    Bianca Evangeline

    Carys Evangeline

    Charlotte Evangeline

    Danica Evangeline

    Grace Evangeline

    Heather Evangeline

    Isla Evangeline

    Kate Evangeline

    Lucy Evangeline

    Margaret Evangeline

    Mary Evangeline

    Monica Evangeline

    Ruby Evangeline

    Sarah Evangeline

    I love Milo, Tristan, Holden, Rhett, and Silas on your boy list. I don't think Sebastian is usable because of The Little Mermaid and it's very grand and a little pretentious, IMO.

    I also love For Esme: With Love & Squalor <3 it's a shame that name is more associated with Twilight now because I'm very tired of being accused of a Twilight fan for wanting to use the name...

    I also love Imogen, Atticus, Milo, Sebastian, and my very favorite, Silas!

    Esme Cecelia

    Imogen Layla

    Aurora <3 Aurora Maie?

  • 4 years ago

    My call is Danny. Severus Snape + Danny = Daneverus Snape. Lucius Malfoy + Danny = Danielucius Malfoy. Quirinus Quirrell + Danny = Danirinus (or Danuirrell). Willy Wonka + Danny = Danilly Wonka. Silas (from 'The Da Vinci Code') + Danny = Dilas. Grima Wormtongue (from 'Lord of the rings') + Danny = Drima Wormtongue. Any call is greater advantageous than Renesmee!!

    Imogen - because Cymbeline is actually where the name originally comes from, and it's my name!

    Sebastian - I just like it. I think it ages well too.

    Imogen Rose

    Sebastian Oscar
