We don't know if it's a boy or girl but we could do with some inspiration for names! This is what I've got on my list so far (although DH doesn't like lots of them....) - any thoughts on these or other potential names??

Girl:
Ariadne
Beatrice
Cecelia
Eliza
Gretel

I like Ariadne, but it's a bit a repeat but different of Persephone, if that makes sense.
Cecelia or Beatrice would be great, or even Cecilia/Cecily/Cicely or Beatrix?
Mariella is fab but a bit flat against a Persephone.

Felix or Gregory for the boys.

Other ideas:
Zenaïde, Athenaïs, Hortensia, Philomene, Circee, Azalea, Tessalie, Aphra, Andromeda, Artemise/ia, Brunehilda/Sunhilda/Swanhilda, Wilhelmina, Coraline, Cleophee, Castille, Domitilla, Bertille, Cybele, Nimue, Cephise, Eglantine?

Ferdinand, Ezekiel, Eustace, Gustave, Octave, Nestor, Arnold, Harold, Zephyr, Rudyard, Ephraim, Basil, Melchior, Joachim, Rufus, Emil, Elzear, Gideon, Gilbert, Hector, Herbert, Isidore, Leonard, Icabod, Jovian?

My mum wanted to call me Persephone, but was outvoted... I think it's a gorgeous name. Stick with the Greeks, I say. I vote for Cassandra too. Or maybe Cressida?

DD claims she is going to have twin girls when she is older called Persephone and Hermione

Athena for a girl, Oberon for a boy.

Andromeda

and

Septimus

Both my sons' names are on your boy list, so you might like what we're calling our third boy - Jarvis.

Ariadne for sure! Maybe Calliope?

Your boys names are all too plain. Ptolemy or Oberon would be great.

What about Ishtar (or Astarté)? She was a Babylonian goddess who went to the underworld, then came back.

Orpheus for a boy....
