    How about Merida? As the heroine of the movie Brave, people definitely think of it as a name associated with the meaning brave.

    Here are some connections to "brave" that I can think of:

    Merida- From the movie Brave
    Elizabeth/Cady- Fought for women's rights alongside Susan B Anthony
    Clara Barton- Ran to the front lines of battles to aid wounded soldiers
    Artemis- Goddess who represented independence, courage, confidence and physical strength
    Nellie Bly- A pioneer for women's journalism
    Ruby Bridges- Fought for school interesting at age six and has been fighting for human rights ever since
    Sybil Ludington- Rode through the night to warn of British Invasion. Her ride was much longer than Paul Revere's

    Merida, Elizabeth, Cady, Clara, Artemis, Nellie, Ruby, and Sybil. Hope this helps.
