Mike, I suggest that you also include the designation “Byzantine Greek” to fill in the gap of Hellenic names spanning from late antiquity up to the Ottoman Empire.
Here are a couple of suggestions:

AMINTA f and AMYNTA f => Ancient Greek (Anglicized) Variant of Ancient Greek AMYNTIA (f) and Ancient Greek AMYNTEA (f)
ARGYROS => Byzantine Greek. Name of Byzantine military.
ARIANA – contemporary Greek concoction.
ARISTA f Greek Mythology, Deity related to Artemis
ATHANAS m Ancient Greek Historian 4th Century BCE
ATTICUS m Ancient Greek (Latinized) form of ATTIKOS
CLETUS m Ancient Greek (Latinized) form of KLETOS (m). Related names include KLETIAS (m) KLETE (f) and KLETA (f)
CYPRIAN m - Byzantine Greek
DELPHIA f – Ancient Greek
DELPHINIA f - Greek Mythology
DEMI f Greek
ELPIDA f Greek form of Ancient Greek ELPIS (hope)
