Name for 4 month baby in Short Story
So, the baby girl has a full head of dark hair and large blue eyes--she is an easy-going baby (as much as babies at this age are)who is born in August and is a Virgo. The mom calls her 'Blueberry' or 'blubear' as a nickname definitely not her name. Not that I'm against it but it doesn't go with the more traditional father who likes romantic names like--Elizabeth, Isabella, Gwendolyn, Guinevere, Catalina, etc. The mom is more open to many names.
Here are some considerations
Ballou (not traditional)
November (a bit long?-- and she's born in August which won't be changed)
Mae (too short not enough bounce)
Ruby, Pippa, Piper (too much bounce)
Bunny (too sweet)
Bruna, Beatrice (not enough sweetness?)
--So, I have taken out all El-names and Mel-names from consideration.
Something that is perhaps smooth with a bounce in sound like November.
The story is current, more of a family drama-edy--the baby is a supporting character not too prominent.
What do you think? Your feedback is much appreciated.

Ballou - I think that this name could work! It's unusual, and Blubear and Blueberry could work as good nn' s.
November - I don't think the length matters...but with your description I don't think it fits.
Mae - Mae is the southern woman who sits on her porch all day...not a good choice for a non-rural setting.
Brier - My second favorite! I can picture a modern-day baby with this name perfectly.
Pearl, Pierette - Pearl, maybe. Pierette, definitely not.
Bunny - Cute, but I agree that it's a little too sweet.
Bruna, Beatrice - I actually think that they are both very sweet! Especially Bruna.
I'll put my top three...
Hermione • Cassia • Rosalie • Sofia • Katarina • Kiona
Leo • Matthias • Espen • Bennett • Avery

Maya came to mind, mostly because I knew a baby Maya who had dark hair, large obviously blue eyes, and very clear pale skin.
I love the Blueberry/Blubear nickname. Love it.
I think Isabella is a perfect idea as well! November on a Virgo just feels wrong to me. lol.
Brier is nice as well, I prefer Briar though.
I think December would've been cute, if she was a December baby. But she's not so.
