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!!!No Reserves. No Retreats. No Regrets.

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?tea drinker + cat lover + ever-evolving baker+cook...positive realist who loves beautiful words, names, and images.
Feel free to ask me about Sanskrit-based names.
