    Majorly....wow.

    The thing is, all feminine names in Latin end in the letter a. So, you have to take the Latin name and place it into another language. For example, Rhoda/Rosa is Latin, then there's Rose. Amelia/Emilia becomes Emily. Julia becomes Juliet. Lucy, Estelle, Tristesse maybe? I don't know, this is hard.

    Mirabelle
    Mireille
    Montserrat
    Natalie
    Noelle
    Olive
    Pax (saw a database with it listed solely as a girls' name--I always thought it was a fabulous nn for Paxton for a boy, though... but it is an intriguing option for a girl!)
    Primrose
    Rosalie
    Ruby
    Sabine
    Seraphine
    Sibyl
    Sylvie
    Valerie/Valentine
    Viatrix (a form of Beatrice, I'm guessing?)
    Vivienne
    Violaine/Violet (the prior is said vee-oh-len, I think? I thought it was intriguing and the nn Viola or Lola would be sweet)

    Good luck!

    This. If you're talking about Latin as in Roman, not taking other languages adaptations into account, there are no feminine given names that end in A. You could take another language's variant based in Latin or a Latin word that isn't normally used as a name. Some examples:
    Pax (peace)
    Lux (light)
    Ceres (a goddess)
    Juno (also a goddess)
