    Some of my personal favorites are the Greek names Alethea (meaning truth) and Airlea (ethereal). Alethea comes with the nicknames Allie, Lettie and Thea; while Airlea can be called Ari, Air, Aira or Lea.

    This site is an amazing archive of Medieval Names from all over the world. I've taken a small selection of feminine Gothic names used from the sixth to tenth centuries that could be used in the modern world.

    Melita (nicknamed Mel, Lita)
    Adosinda (Addie, Indi, Sinda)
    Alabera (Allie, Abi, Era)
    Alatrudia (Dia, Allie, Tru/Trudie, Dia)
    Zenecida (Zen, Zenna, CiCi, Cida)
    Fredesinda (Freddie, Des, Dessi, Sinda, Indi)
    Eldontia (Ellie, Eldi, Donni, Tia)
    Elduara (Eldi, Ara)
    Leuvina (Vin, Vina)
    Leudesinda (Leu, Des, Sinda, Indi)
    Sunildi (Sunni)
    Sesoira (SiSi, Soira)
    Teodoriga (Tay, Dori)
    Teodosinda (Teo, Tay, Dosie, Sinda, Indi)
    Vilocia (Vil, Villi, Lola)

    Here is also a direct link to feminine names given in England between 1000-1500. Just scroll to the bottom for an index.

    Good luck!

    I know it ends with an uh sound, but Caieta ("kye-ETT-uh") would fit your criteria - it was the name of Aeneas' wet-nurse in Virgil's Aeneid (so far as I know), so it has that ancient connection, and it is nothing if not obscure. Nicknames could be Caia (which also means 'rejoice'), Aia, Etta, Ettie etc. (it's one of my favourites that I am selling hard...) Good luck!
