Okay, so I've posted about it before, and found some that I like, but none of them stuck. :/

 

My problem areas:

 

Memphis Haylie (love this first name, I'm just back and forth on middles!)

Leya Ryleigh

Kairi Hayden

 

Leilani

Athena

Rhea (pron. "Ray-uh")

Memphis Haylie is cute!

Leya Ryleigh- it's nice but not my favourite.

Kairi Hayden- Im not sure how to p/n Kairi is it like Kyrie? or Ky-ri? 

 

Lelani is cute, nice and underrated so less likely to have others around with that name.

Athena is nms but still a lovely name

Rhea-personally id p/n it ree-uh if i saw that spelling. I have a friend called Raer which is pn Ray-uh, which i find its a little nicer. Im a fan of easy spelling to get the preferred pronunciation (only because i go through it on a daily basis with my name).

Thanks Brittany! Kairi is pronounced like Kyrie, which I like a lot, I just prefer the original spelling. :) Appreciate your input!

Memphis Haylie - To be honest, I prefer Memphis on a boy, but I do think this is a cute combo. I actually have a female friend who has the occasional nickname of "Mem," though it doesn't pertain to her actual name.

Leya Ryleigh - It's not my style, but I think it's pretty.

Kairi Hayden Again, I prefer Hayden on a boy, but this combo is okay. 

 

Leilani - This sounds to me like the name of a Hawaiian princess, though I guess that's not necessarily good or bad. Leilani Grace would be cute, since it's a common short name to balance long, exotic Leilani. Other suggestions: Leilani Mae(ve), Leilani Kira, Leilani Cora, Leilani Willow.

Athena - I personally think this is too much for a child/person because Athena was such an important goddess in Greek mythology. But anyway, suggestions: Athena Vivienne, Athena Beatrice, Athena Gabrielle, Athena Kate.

Rhea (pron. "Ray-uh") - My first instinct is to pronounce it "Ree-uh," but this is a pretty name. This is also from Greek mythology, but not a main deity, so I think it's usable. Suggestions: Rhea Penelope, Rhea Corinne, Rhea Gabrielle, Rhea Isabelle. 

 

Good luck with your name list!
