Aside from the debate about strippers' motives, virtues, and socio-economic status going on here, this could be a decent name game. I'm going to answer this question as if Jonathan Larson was asking for suggestions for stripper / drag queen names for his new musical. (Funny, I don't like the names Mimi or Angel much at all, although I love most everything else about Rent.) I'm not saying that any of these are trashy or would be bad on a child; rather, I just think they would sound cool as stage names.
Cherry (I like the expensive wood aspect but perhaps the double entendre is just too much...)
Sapphire, Jade, Diamond, Amethyst, Ruby...any precious stone
Azure / Azura
Now that I think about it, Angel might be the most masculine name that would fit for that character...Charity and Charis are the only other things I can think of
I don't care for the completely ironic virtue names like Chastity, Temperance, or Virginia

And, like the op said, posters here often comment that a name sounds like a stripper name, when what they mean is that a name sounds trashy or hypersexual. I do think it's worth showing that strippers use many very cool and respectable names as stage names. The term "stripper name" is used inaccurately in the forums here. I def appreciate the op addressing that.
Features of a good stage name:
easy to hear correctly in a loud room
easy to say in many languages
easy for the dj to pronounce correctly
not used by another dancer in the club
conjures a persona that it is fun for the dancer to inhabit
Possible good features of a stage name
-doesn't remind customers of someone they know. This is a reason to choose something very rare/ made up/ new/ extravagant or a word name. (Alternately, some dancers deliberately choose names that were trendy in a previous era, bc this might remind customers of their first girlfriend, highschool crush, etc.)
-glamorous/ silly/ hypersexual/ fun (Alternately, some (many) dancers choose very real sounding names bc their hustle is making the pretense of authenticity.)
-versatile in vibe (Some dancers like to become a different person with every customer. Some dancers have one very specific hustle.)
