Question: vs. Is it a bad idea vs. to combine names?

My husband and I both had sisters who passed on when we were children. We are finally having a girl after three boys, and we would like to honor our sisters in our daughter’s name. My sister was Daniella, and his sister was JoyAnna. We have considered making both names our daughter’s middle names, but then we came up with Joyella (no, we don’t want to use Joella/Joelle). What do you think? Is this a bad idea? We thought it would be a nice way to honor them. We also like that it is unique and meaningful. Please comment and help us out! - The Greys

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
