Liking both of these but a bit concerned about potential for teasing.
What do you all think?

I like them, but then again I go for unusual girls names! I also like Iolanthe.

I love them both. I know a little Ianthe, she doesn't get teased at all.

I like them too, it's not like they are unpronouncable just unusual.

I was thinking of Ian- the as potential for teasing and Ione is a bit like IOU. Am I over analysing?!

I have always liked Ione since reading a book as a child with a girl called this. Think it is unusual without being wierd and also quite easy to guess how to spell it right! Think Iona, Iolanthe & Ianthe are good too, and prefer them all to Xanthe.(Book was this one if you are interested!)
