    Futuristic Girls' Name?

    I've deviated away from novels for a bit to give my brain a break, so I'm starting a Doctor Who fanfiction. Trying to avoid fanfiction cliches, here's the synopsis:

    The year is 3682. The planet of Zhuleikhet (may change that, just kept the name from my last draft), colonized by humans a thousand years previous, has been ravaged by war and lays in dusty, dystopian ruin. Half the population is starving and homeless and the other half were soldiers or prisoners; traumatized and with the means to live given to them only because of their trade or government benefits. The unnamed main character is the daughter of a soldier. Her planet is a desert, so she has dark skin, dark hair, and dark eyes and dresses in the manner that will protect her from the heat and wind.

    I'm looking for something Sanskrit-sounding, slightly futuristic, and not long. Three syllables, max (So Abhyavarshini and Bhaktidayini are out). One hitch: I don't like names that end in E. A and I are ideal, and U is good if it goes with the last name, Demir.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here are some Sumerian names I tend to use for my futuristic names...
    Sometimes I mash them together to make more interesting sounds and meanings.
    They're Sumerian, as I said before, and I don't really know what gender is which... but...
    Eh, whatever. Some sound futuristic-y enough...

    I dig androgynous names and hate "creative" spellings. Since I'm not a kid person, I'm probably just here to name video game characters.
