If I remember correctly, Puritan and Biblical (especially Old Testament) names were popular during that time period, so virtue names of all sorts and classic/old fashion names would have been the norm.

I love a lot of Colonial names(biased, I know). Primrose was on my short list.
I also like Prudence nn Pru, as in Charmed and Patience. I think Remember is usable too but think about the conversation: "Hey, what's your name?" "Remember". Sounds funny, like she wants everybody not to forget her name but actually that's not a huge problem. You can always use it in the middle name slot.
And from virtue names I also like Constance and Vera(faith).
