Girls names having to do with intelligence?
I was wondering if anyone could come up with girls names (besides Sophia) that have meanings or significance relating to wisdom or intelligence.
I'm looking for names that are feminine and have pleasant sounds, but connote strength and brains. I used to want to use Sophia as a middle name because of its beautiful sound and strong meaning but its place at the top of the popularity charts has dampened its "specialness" for me.- current loves -
Harriet - Flora - Violet - Clementine - Matilda - Wilhelmina - Josephine - Cordelia
Milo - Frederick - Dashiell - Gus - Atticus - Felix - Theo - Harrison - Jack

Ramona (Wise protector)
Sage (wise, healthy)
Alden (old wise friend)
Orinthia (to excite/stir the mind)
Imala (strong minded- not exactly smart, but similar)
Kaya (my elder sister- a name that does suggest wisdom)
Names meaning leader/ruler (suggests wisdom):
