Wow, thank you so much for the responses! I'm trying to compile a list of names that I might want to use as a pen name. I have a completed manuscript that I'd like to start sending out to agents asap but my name is completely unusable as an author's name--hard to pronounce, spell, and unique enough that my facebook page comes up first thing if you google my name. I have kids and that sort of exposure is not what I want.
I've been conflicted about what image I'd like to project to my readers (I write YA) your responses are definitely helping narrow down the direction I'd like to take.Inkling (28), strong single Mama of two mischievous kidlings: Lady Bug (7) & Baby Bear (4)
I'm a full-time Supermom and part-time Author, currently on the hunt for a new Pen Name to keep my past out of my future--something strong and edgy to symbolize my new start in life...

Not a Fan:
Penelope- cute but it's become trendy. I unfortunately associate it with the Kardashians.
Genevieve- I like this, but pronunciation might be an issue
Francesca- love. Pretty, sexy, romantic
suggestions based on first three names: Adelaide, Elodie, Marcella, Filomena,Lucia, Nathalie,Gabriella, Valentina, Evangeline, Georgiana, Antonella
Vivika/Viveka- reminds me of Viveka Fox-- prefer Viveca.
Eve- cute but Eve/Eva/Ava has become trendy.
Eliza- like it
Calla- love it Dahlia, Camelia/Camilla, Posy, Iris, Aster, Lilac, Lotus, Zinnia, Fleur
Briar- I want to add "Rose" to it.
Saffron- love this (I'm a huge Ab-Fab fan), but not sure a little girl would appreciate it Cora, Violet, Clover, Lark, Wren, Willow
Tatum- I associate it with Channing Tatum, which makes me think of strippers. Not a good thing.
