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.

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!
