    Tough -- but not boyish -- girl's names?

    I'm looking to build a list (mostly for character purposes, but as I have no specifics I put this here instead of the author's forum) of tough girl names that are still 100% GIRL. So far I have,

    Eliza
    Roxanne
    Adrienne (I know this can be considered more neutral, but I can't see it on a boy at all)
    Helena
    Macerine (I think I made this up?)
    Hazel
    Minerva

    I'm not too big on more 'common' names, but if you think it really fits, by all means suggest it. My style tends towards vintage (clearly...), but I'm kinda looking for more variety so everything is welcome.

    If it helps anyone, I want names that strike a certain personality. All of the above names give me a distinct impression, though that might be the writer in me, and I like having that.

    Please and thank you!

    Nobody's messing with those girls.

    I probably took this too literally, but the toughest girls from my childhood: Stephanie, DeeDee, Desi, Shannon, Sandy (and obnoxious adults: Kathy, Mary, Mabel). My favorite strong girls' names: Alexandra (Sasha), Victoria, Catarina, Diana, Athena, Jordana, Lucrezia, Odetta, Valeska.
