We are doing a non-medically assisted (UC) home birth.... bebe is "due" in Feb... we anticipate an Aquarius, but it could be close. I am just a radical momma looking for connection and friendship right now.
I want input, suggestions, ideas, and participation, please :) Pitch me some more names and please give me all thoughts on what I've come up with so far! Our other children's names are Zion Elijah Wolfe (male) and Sora Artemis Cascade(female). We are looking for suggestions for first, middle, and last names.... the kiddos all have their own last name. :)
Samus is the coolest video game girl ever. The fact that she is a girl makes it iconic. She was attributed qualities like athleticism, intelligence, and independence (she works alone). Her story through the Metroid games is totally epic. (http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/Metroid_Prime for example)
was an ancient, legendary Sumerian king of the city of Kish, and was, according to the Sumerian king list, one of the kings who reigned after the deluge. He is listed as the successor of Arwium, the son of Mashda, as king of Kish. The list also calls Etana "the shepherd, who ascended to heaven and consolidated all the foreign countries", and states that he ruled 1560 years (some copies read 635) before being succeeded by his son Balih, said to have ruled 400 years.
A Babylonian legend says that Etana was desperate to have a child, until one day he helped save an eagle from starving, who then took him up into the sky to find the plant of birth. This led to the birth of his son, Balih.
In the detailed form of the legend, there is a tree with the eagle's nest at the top, and a serpent at the base. Both the serpent and eagle have promised Utu (the sun god) to behave well toward one another, and they share food with their children.
But one day, the eagle eats the serpent's children. The serpent comes back and cries. Utu tells the serpent to hide inside of the stomach of a dead bull. The eagle goes down to eat the bull. The serpent captures the eagle, and throws him into a pit to die of hunger and thirst. Utu sends a man, Etana, to help the eagle. Etana saves the eagle, but he also asks the bird to find the plant of birth, in order to become father of a son. The eagle takes Etana up to the heaven of the god Anu, but Etana becomes afraid in the air and he goes back to the ground. He makes another attempt, and finds the plant of birth, enabling him to have Balih.
Here is a link to the whole translated Myth of Etana. Wow!
There is a lot of reference to Shamash in there....
I think my fav combo is Sol Creek Rainsong. I really like Rainsong as a last name especially for a girl :)

Rainsong is very apropos, considering we live in Oregon... And it is the title of a song I really love.
Someone on Facebook suggested Horizon as a name, and that really clicked with me. I like it! It has all of the letters of my 8 year old's name in it (zion) and he would get a kick outta that!
I think our tastes are pretty different, but my favorites from your list are Devo and Sparrow. Cosmos, Ember, and Escher are fairly good, too. I would avoid Allin because it looks like a misspelling of Alan, Windy because "wind" is a euphemism for ... , and Bliss because it conjures up some negative images for a female.
Odin Rogue Fox for a boy and Sola Ember Rainsong for a girl. (Is Sola too close to Sora?) Horizon is awesome for a boy or a girl, too! :)

Boy: Sol or Devo
Girl: Sora or Samus are my favs but I like to pair a more unique name with a slightly tamer one too...
I like Sola and Sparrow for a girl. Horizon is good all around. I also like Rama, Creek, Odin and Fox.

Awesome choices! I love original names & the idea of giving each kiddo their own last name is pretty cool too!
Here's my votes...
#1 Choice = Merlin Escher Rainsong
#2 Choice = Merlin Sparrow Rainsong
#1 Choice = Sowilo Guru Cloudkicker (you could call him "Sol" for short)
#2 Choice = Etana Odin Cloudkicker
Good luck to you during your pregnancy and birth in Aquarius :)
I really love the name Sparrow. Someone mentioned Genesis...Sparrow Genesis Darkstar. I like that. :)
Also, not on your list but I love the name Soleil.
I know you have a pretty long list already, but here are some more you might like:

I like Etana better for a girl, it's a Hebrew girls name, the feminine of the name known as Ethan in English. It's not a common name but I've known a couple over the years.
Etana Sol Darkstar would be lovely for a girl. (I don't really have an opinion about the last name though.)
Odin Felix Cloudkicker I like the idea of a happy god kicking clouds.
I would not use Feral, that's not a nice thing to call someone, I've mostly heard it used as an insult.
