Name That Character!

Ok, people, I need help. I’m renaming my female character YET AGAIN, and I can’t make up my mind. I’m trying to find something that’s not über-common, yet not so outlandish no one can pronounce it. I’ve listed a few choices below that I’m considering, although in the end I can’t guarantee any of these are going to make the final cut either. What I’d like to know is your choice, and in the comments below, please let me know if you’ve heard of any of these being used recently in a situation where it might cause someone to say “She stole that name from Book X,” or “there’s a character on Soap Opera Y with that name”, or any place else you might have heard it. Obviously “Bella” is right out. Pretty much anything that can be found on any “Top 100 Names” list is also disqualified.
