Although you didn't choose the names to fit your theme, Basil and Cyril are actually names from Greek too - Basil means "kingly" from the Greek word for a king 'basileus' and Cyril means "lordly ".I mostly have ancient Greek/Roman god(dess) type theme going.
Jupiter- he's the dad of 2 babies so thought either Zeus or Jupiter. He has a couple of red patches on him like the planet. So Jupiter it was.
Eileithyia-Eris- Eileithyia being the goddess of labour pains and birth, Eris being the goddess of chaos. As she came to me pregnant, I felt it fitting.
Dysnomia- the daughter of Eris (also in Greek mythology). She's the demon goddess of lawlessness and my Mia is a law to herself. Seriously doesn't care will do what she what's when she wants.
Apollo- god of music and dance (amongst other things). Even at a few days old he was wheeking and pop-corning. Like he was singing and dancing. Still the same now a year on.
Basil- he's a rex and the first thing my mum said was he looks like a brush, why don't you call him basil brush?
Cyril- rhymes with squirrel. He looks like a squirrel and red like a squirrel.
Originally Eileithyia-Eris was called Oreo as she is black and white. Jupiter was originally called Chunk as he was dwarfed by Eris. Literally chunk sized. When I realised that Eris (formerly Oreo) was pregnant, I changed the names to something more fitting and the babies followed suit.
(A St Cyril was one of the Greek saints who took Christianity to Russia and also gave his name to the Russian alphabet, Cyrillic)
