A more appropriate meme might be those who condemn sensual heretical Western liturgical music while they laud the conservatism of their local ROCOR parish where nothing but modern Russian polyphony is heard.

You just ruined Agni Parthene for me.  Thanks.

I've heard that way too many times in real life.

Er, no. The resemblance is purely superficial.

The only way Agni Parthene could be conceived of as "Western" is its regularly metered, verse structure (as opposed to most Orthodox hymns which are prose-poems) but it's not like the West invented poetic meter either.

The vast majority of hymns in the Church (Canons) are regularly metered, verse structure hymns.

Some other suggestions; Nymphodora, Minodora, Theodula, Glykeria, Radegunda, Cunegunda (the last two only apply if she is western rite).
PS
Nicholas,
I wasted two good hours of my life searching for a picture but couldn't quite find a satisfactory one. I actually would have one, but she's an acquaintance and I can't do this to her.

I'd like to build a little house on her prairie, if you know what I mean.

And by "know what I mean", I mean living as brother and sister in an angelic marriage. Unfortunately I can no longer pursue monasticism. I know that demonic fantasies about her exposed neckline in this pic would surface years later during extended seclusion.

In monasteries . what name will u pick William?
I would have just googled the names of every Orthodox saint and then chosen the one with the fewest results.

That way I might be the first person in america to have a totally obscure one.
