    A baby born at 37 weeks isn't typically considered to be a preemie.

    Behind the Name is a great site to use to look up names by meaning.

    One of my favorites is Matilda, which means "strength in battle".
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    Decima

    I can't think of any witty name quotes, so this will have to do.

    Her baby might not be a preemie week-wise but the baby's estimated weight seems to be as low as a preemie's.
    Usually babies born at 37 weeks would almost be as heavy as babies born at 40 weeks.
    I agree that the previous suggestion Matilda / Mathilda seems really fitting for your baby girl.
    Or maybe Clementine, which means 'mild'/'merciful'; Clara meaning 'bright'/'clear'; Lucy or Helena both meaning 'light'.
    Something with a positive, strong meaning.
