I'm fairly certain I am having a girl,
and these are some names that have been running through my head.

Lillian Jolie Cummings--Lilly Jolie Cummings
Lillian London Cummings--Lilly London Cummings
Lillian Brontë Cummings--Lilly Brontë Cummings

Amelia Jolie Cummings
Amelia London Cummings
Amelia Brontë Cummings

(It's such a shame I have such an awful surname. hopefully I marry a fellow with a nice surname lol)

Meanings of the names:

I tend to gravitate towards somewhat traditional first names with odd middle names lol
I definitely wouldn't give my child a biblical name (Sarah, Rebeka, Mary)
but any suggestions?
mixing the names around perhaps? or something completely different that you think I may like?
and because I don't know for sure if its a girl or boy, you can throw out some boy names as well.

Yeah my sister just had a baby and she named him Hephaestion Case. no middle name. I could go that route but I like middle names. and Amy is too common for my taste. :/

I like Lillian, it sounds pretty. I'd agree about traditional first names - it's certainly worth going with something that doesn't make people say "what?" or "how do you spell that?". I hate being asked to spell my (last) name, though I laugh if asked how to spell Michael.

Roman Citizens had three names! I also see people with three names use their middle name for various things. Either as a first name if they don't like their real first name, or as a last name if they don't want to give their real last name for reasons of privacy (though of course neither of those can be done in a legal setting). I think London sounds nice, being the name of a city it carries a lot of meaning and history, but I'm from the UK so I'm biased.

Yeah I have never been to the UK, I have always wanted to go though. I have the British flag hanging on my wall lol

I don't want my child to have a difficult name or one they will be made fun of for. But I want it to be somewhat unique not Ashley or Jennifer

and yes hephaestion is alexander's very good friend lol. It is unique and quite the huge name for a child, my poor nephew will never be able to spell his name! I do call him Feisty for short, its cute and appropriate!

I never understood middle names. I'd like for my children instead to carry their mother's maiden name in lieu of a middle name.

I think both first names you settled on are lovely.

Maybe it's not your real surname, but Jael looks and sounds wonderfully exotic to me.

If you're looking for unusual names from ancient Greece, I suggest Lysistrata. It means "army-disbander".
