    Names meaning Brave/Courage

    I've gone through pretty much all the lists I can looking for GIRLS names that mean brave/bravery or courage/couageous and there are not a whole lot that I love! Looking for something outside of the box, maybe a "girl version" of a boy name (like I found Evera is supposed to be the girl version on Everard which means "Brave One"

    Possibly could go with a name that has a "brave" connotation too...like Amelia reminds me Amelia Earhart, but I don't love Amelia.

    Thanks!!!

    Only related names I could think of - Matilda/Maude meaning "strength in battle" or "battle ready", and Audrey/Etherdred means "noble strength". Clotilde "famous battle", and Isolde "ice battle" are related to battle, which evokes bravery...

    Would you consider religious figures - i.e, Esther or Judith, who acted bravely? Or goddesses, like Artemis? Or perhaps mythological figures, like Atalanta?

    Feel free to ask me about Sanskrit-based names.
