    Talking Girl Names from Poems?

    I am looking for girl names that are either titles of poems or appear in poems! NOT non-proper names like Sonnet, but ones like;

    "Evangeline" by Henry Wordsworth Longfellow
    "The Rape of the Lock" (Arabella) by Alexander Pope
    "Eulalie" by Edgar Allen Poe (plus all of his other lady poems like "Lenore")
    "Maud" by Alfred Lloyd Tennyson


    I have already perused Shakespeare and the popular Greek epic poems!
