    Magnolia was my first thought as well, but I think other quirky floral names would also work, like Azalea (not with Azilee, of course) or Gardenia, Begonia, Freesia, or Hyacinth. Oh, Tansy or Zinnia might work!

    The one girl I can think of who I know in in real life with "old Southern heritage" is named Zanna.

    Lousiana could work if you're looking for something super-Southern. It has the -anna ending that you like, and loads of nickname potential - Lou, Lucy, Louie, Louise, Louisa, Lula, Luana, Luna, and so on ...

    Here is a thread I started a long time ago of church cookbook names. The names I listed were all from my grandmother's very very southern church cookbook, so you might enjoy those:

    I live in the South. My last landlady was 91 years old (she's 92 now) and her name is Camelia.

    Most "ette/etta" names, "dora" and "belle/bella/elle/ella" names are good contenders. Double first names are also quite common (Ellie May, Marybeth), as well as double first names that include both a boy and girls name such as Billie Jean and Bo Kate.
