Leap day/ February/ Sun names

Our baby girl is very likely to be born on leap day. We are looking for a middle name that has some significance either to this day or related to February or the fact that leap day is sun related. As its a middle name, we're willing to be quite creative so all suggestions are welcome (draw the line at Frog though!)

Please help us come up with something!

I love Seren but can't use it. Astrid doesn't flow great with our first name. Keep them coming though!

Delta - Greek for 'four' and Leap Days are every 4 years

Olympia - ditto every 4 years

Delta is the 4th letter of the Greek alphabet, but I've never known it used for 4 (willing to be corrected). Four is tessera - NN Tess?

The first name we've chosen is pretty unusual (8 born in 2014 according to ONS) but sounds similar to Ella. I think it rules out other 'a' or 'er' ending names.

We like Robyn, Juno, Margot but none hold any significance or meaning - hence looking for something relating to leap year. It's just harder than I thought to find a name we like with a connection. Thanks for suggestions so far though!

We have come up with many Leapified names. Some are a bit, well, you'll see. Some are quite cute.

And in case you do have that little Leapling, we have a Parents Page:

I Leap, therefore I am,
Raenell Dawn, Cofounder
Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies

Anyone can be born in a Leap Year. We were born on Leap Year Day.
But, it's not only our birth day, it's everyone's extra day! Do something good with it.
