She sounds very much like a Hazel to me, Hazel Margery, but I wonder if perhaps that isn't unique enough for you?
I think Ruby could be a quick transition from Boo - to Roo or Rue? - and I like Ruby Aveline, Ruby Cordelia, and Ruby Gwendolen for you.
With Ulysses, Bishop, and Winifred, perhaps:
Alice - Alice Marigold Elspeth (Allie)
Lenore - Lenore Viola Julip (Leni, Lena)
Pauline - Pauline Eulalie Rose (Polly)
My favorites have combo ideas.

I think Beatrice or Beatrix would work very well on a sweet but serious girl, plus I love how it sounds with Winifred. Boo could easily become Bee.
UPDATE: OH! I just saw somebody suggested Eleanor! I *LOVE* that more than the rest for both your criteria for sweet but serious, the storybook aspect plus I think Eleanor next to Winifred, Bishop and Ulysses is just perfection!!

@lemon - Hazel is beautiful, I really like it. Not sure how I feel about it with Margery. Since Hazel is vintage, I might want something more fresh and modern to lighten it up. But I am adding Hazel to the list. It's one I'd kind of forgotten about, thank you. I've thought about something Rue/Roo for the "boo" connection. Any suggestions besides Ruby? I couldn't think of anything!
@bandksmith - Thank you for the suggestion! Serenity Grace is a lovely combo, but not for me.
@bibliophile - Yeah, I'm really, really unsure about the combos. I kind of threw a few names together, didn't even ask Himself. But Marjorie Simone is rather cute, idnit? I love all of your suggestions, especially Adelaide. I think that'd really, really work for her. I'm concerned about the rising popularity. I'm not fond of "Addy." Maybe Lacey as a nickname?
@pistachio - oh Reverie! I like that. Maybe as a middle.
@rkrd - Felicity Juliet has lots of spunky and sweetness. Will definitely think about that one.
