Cori from Denver:

I've been having a hard time coming up with the perfect middle name for my baby. If it's a girl I want to name her Selene, after the moon goddess. If it's a boy, Elio, after the sun god. I considered something like Luna, for Selene, but I feel like it doesn't fit it. As for Elio, no idea. Last name is Rios.

-Elio Aditya Rios (alternate name for the Hindu sun god Surya)

-Elio Giove Rios (Italian name for Jupiter/Zeus)

-Elio Izrael Rios (Izrael being an alternate form of Asriel)


-Selene Rhianna Rios (Rhianna is a form of Rhiannon, Celtic goddess of fertility and the moon)

-Selene Arianne Rios (Ariadne was a wife of the god Dionysus, multiple alternate spellings and forms available)

-Selene Indira Rios [Indira(h) is an alternate name for the Hindu goddess Lakshmi)


Best of luck, and please let us know what you decide!

Honestly, I just really like the name Selene Moon.... :)  Monday is good too, and also has both moon and day!


Do you pronounce the name Selene "seh-LEAN" or "seh-LEAN-ah" or something else (SEH-leh-nay?  SEH-leh-nee?  What other options are there?)?  Basically, two or three syllables?

Are you wanting exclusively names that have to do with sun for boys or moon for girls?  That seems to be what you want from the suggestion of Luna, but I wanted to make sure that was a limit you had set.  


EL-ee-oh, right?  Not eh-LEE-oh?


Elio Khurshid Rios (Khurshid = shining sun)

Elio Samson Rios (apparently Samson is derived from Sun at some point.  And it sounds lovely.)  

Elio Sorin Rios (Romanian Sorin is maybe from Sun?)


What about Elio Sky?
