    Sisters' names?

    Hello,
    I could use some help on religious sisters' names for a story I'm working on.
    Many sisters and nuns have the name Mary in front of another name (Sister Mary Angelica, Sister Mary Catherine),
    but I'm also looking for other names, like those of saints, esp. martyrs and beatified/canonized members of religious
    orders. Please, nothing "creative"--the names should be timeless and classic. Any ideas?
    Oh, and the religious order is the Dominicans (Order of Preachers); the community is fictional.
    ~Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.~
    ~Where charity and love are, God is there. Christ's love has gathered us into one.~

    I went to a Catholic convent school and we had some nuns who took male saint names.Sister Bonaventure was our principal. There are more common saints names like Theresa/Teresa, Sophia and Bernadette but here are other female saint names.
