The tradition is for James to be the first name, so moving it to the middle is kind of pointless. I understand the concerns about too much mythology and too much star trek, but I don't mind things like that. :)
I know, but I don't mind. :)
I have an eight-year-old niece named Selene. I never thought twice about it.
Well, first of all, I'd like to reiterate, it's all subjective, whether or not others agree. Second given the UK's proximity to France, Za-vie-ay may be what you encounter most frequently. If you want a definitive pronunciation, I don't think an opinion forum is the place to look. This site's "namipedia" officially recognizes Za-vee-ay (as well as Eks-say-vier), so that'll probably be as definitive as it gets. In the end no one can tell you that you're pronouncing your baby's name wrong. What ever you like best is right. :)
I did not know that about Baelfire. A character in a T.V. show we watch had that name. I thought it sounded cool... even sort of elegant. :/
Just to let you know, we're not really set on a greek theme or anything. Nothing has really struck us as of yet, but some other things that we're looking for, multiple syllables, possibly with nickname potential. Story behind the name (or meaning or origin, for that matter) isn't as important.
@CeCe: We came across the name Delanynder in a video game and loved it. With our second one my husband suggested Icarus. We stuck the K in there so we can call him Ike for short. As far as theme goes, it's not really that important except that it would be pretty odd to have Delanynder, Ikarus, and James. Right?
