Thread: Renaming Cassandra...

So I have a problem. My main character is currently named Cassandra Atkinson, which I'm not happy with for a number of reasons. It's too long, it comes out like Cassandratkinson when you say it out loud and it's just a little too girly for her. She needs a name that's feminine but not too girly (and preferably doesn't end in -a) and a little bit unusual. The book takes place maybe 50 or so years in the future, and naming trends are different - but not too different. Other characters are named Livia, Emerson (boy) and Wren. I'm fairly content with her last name - it's the first name I need suggestions for. And if anyone would like to offer a few ideas for middle names, well, that wouldn't go unappreciated.
I've considered Astrid, Faith and Daphne. I like the 'feel' of Daphne for this character - it's soft and pretty but not frilly (in my opinion, anyway), but I just don't think Daphne is the right name for her. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
And for anyone who's feeling particularly helpful today, I need a name for another character, who used to be called Lucas. I'd like a strong name for him that doesn't say dumb jock (like Brock or Bruce might)... I'm thinking maybe Roman or Griffin.Teen writer, pianist, sci-fi geek, cat-owner and name enthusiast.
