    Need sci-fi novel heroine name. Please help!

    I'm writing a sci-fi novel that's set about 100 years into the future. I've got names for nearly everyone except my main character (who's a fifteen-year-old girl); I need a name that's different and original, but not ridiculous. Something that could potentially have some meaning behind it, like Katniss. Please help!

    What do you want it to mean? Katniss is a water plant. Do you mean you want it to be a nature name?
    Every name has 'some meaning behind it' whether it will match your character is the issue.
