Struggling with name for main character female
I am the most indecisive person in the world but, I've been struggling with names for the last few days while deciding to re write the story. I've been playing around with a few names. I really love Lydia but, I'm not quit sure. I'm open to suggestions, guys please help me out.

Arielle - 1st thought Mermaid, 2nd thought aerial tower, gives a very ethereal airy bimbo-ish feel to me
Lila - I never know how to pronounce this! Lee-luh, Lie-luh, Lil-uh, etc., feeling of uncertainty is all I get
Willa - I much prefer this to Lila as I feel it has only one pronunciation. It was very uncommon for the last 50 years though, so if you want your character to be in her teens or an adult (but not in her 60's) it's something to consider
Arabella - same as Willa in terms of popularity , again a very airy feel but with a bit more dust than Arielle. This still feels a bit Harry Potter to me.
Lydia - very classic, but not super interesting. Solid name for a nice girl.
I think something like Aubrey or Audrey (from your signature) would be a great option.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

When I got older, I realized I couldn't find books that took me to all the places I wanted to go. To go to those places, I had to write some books myself.”

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
