Definitely Ophelia Catherine Jane. You just managed to smoosh my top 3 girls' combos. I don't really dislike Millie, but there are so many Millies and Tillys and Lilys about it doesn't feel that special. Also, its basically Northern Irish for a female chav when spelt with a -y, which is something I can never quite see past, although it's fine if you don't live in NI.
And regarding Ophelia getting bullied - how many kids would know that Ophelia in Hamlet committed suicide? I daresay they would never have heard of her. I've never heard of a Juliet getting teased based on the same reasons, and she's much more famous.
Btw, I agree with Whillemina above that Beatrice is just perfect with Ophelia.My furry darlings ~ Bodie the border terrier & Portia and Penny the guinea pigs
