    Name for the girl next door

    I am thinking about a new idea involving a boy named Will who has a crush on a girl. It is not a fantasy novel. The girl is somewhat popular, and pretty. She is nice to the boy, but they aren't really a couple (but they could be). She's supposed to be somewhat normal with a playful, youthful and radiant spirit. The book really isn't about her, but she is a major secondary character. I want it to sound like someone you would know and the girl next door, but not very popular or ordinary.
    Here is what I have so far, but none of these seem quite right:
    Kaelyn (sp?)

    Nathalie

    Marilyn

    Belinda

    Robyn

    Zaria

    Ruby

    Antonia

    Greenlee

    Lilly

    Garnet

    Ireland

    Do you think any of these work particularly? Are there a few names that stand out? Feel free to suggest others.
    If it helps these characters would be born in the 1990's. (not sure what year yet)

    Thank you so much for your time and opinions.

    Lilly and Nathalie (though Natalie spelling looks less exotic and French), possibly Ruby, are the only names that have a plain-Jane "girl next door" vibe. Some others that are girl-next-door to me:

    Jane
    Alice
    Emma
    Mary
    Lynn
    Charlotte
    Amanda
    Emily
    Miley, Kylie
    Vivien
    Bailey, Hayley,
    Tayla, Kayla,
    Sabrina
    Clara, Farrah, Tara, Mara, Sara
    Adele

    Less exotic or funky versions of your names:
    Kaelyn - Lynn, Kaylie
    Nathalie - Natalie
    Marilyn - Mary, Marie, Lynn
    Belinda - Belle, Bella, Linda
    Robyn - Robin
    Zaria - Aria, Daria
    Antonia - Andrea nn Andy, Toni
    Greenlee - Lee/Leigh, Violet (Green's a color...I don't know)
    Garnet - Ruby
    Ireland - Holland nn Holly, Brooklyn, Sydney, Carolina, Charlotte
    Amedeo Enjolras Aristotle Leonardo Archer Olivier Mischa Liam Caspian Benedict Theodore Fitzwilliam
    Rosalie Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Alice Elisabeth Stella Titania Artemis Cicely Margarethe Thalia Astrid
