    Dixie needs a new name!!!!! Help!

    Ok so let me explain a few things before I lose the nerve to do this.
    I have been working on my book for a good three years now and I'm not close to half way yet.
    I'm in highschool and it has been hard for me to find the mind set and place to write more than 100 or more in a single sitting.
    I'm VERY ADHD....on meds. So I will get super focused sometimes and came be really productive but if I get distracted in between or interrupted it talks a long time for me to get in my tunnel focus again. Hence the book Isn't finished.
    I'm calling this a mid book naming crises.

    Nuf said on that, now about Dixie and a little bit about her...
    Dixie is quiet, sweet, gentle, shy, a deep thinker, kind, selfless, and protective of things she loves.
    She is quite similar to Jane Bennet in Pride and Prejudice.
    Dixie lives in the future.....the year 5000 to be exact.

    She is one MC out of Four teens that have to save their world...blah, blah ,blah. All you need to know for that..It's a secret.
    My issue with Dixie's name is that it sticks out too much from the others and a boy in the four teens is named, Dion which clashes too much and I don't want to confuse the reader with the similarity in their names.

    My ideas for her new name are something like:

    Cora - Really like this one
    Elaine -
    Inga - or Ingrid
    Sally -
    Mae - or May
    Mabel -
    Britta -
    Emmy -
    I'd love to hear what you Berries think of my ideas and many new suggestions
    Thank you soo much

    What are the other characters names? Without knowing any of that, I love Cora.

    If it's set in the year 5000, I think Dixie and Dion are the sort of names you want to go for if you're sticking with existing names, that is to say, not futuristic made up by you sort of names. They're pretty uncommon and have a 'hippy' sort of feel to them. Comparatively, most of your other names sound more present day. I like Inga best - it's got a familiar sound, easy to read, is close to a more familiar name of Ingrid but also sounds perfectly plausible for a girl 3000 years in the future. The only other one of your names that sounds like it vaguely fits that is Britta, but that's also the name of a water filter so I wouldn't use it.

    What are the names of your other main characters?

    Anna Katherine * Lydia Ellen * Zoe Madeleine * Phoebe ___ * Imogen ___ * Emilia ___
    Samuel * Thomas * Charlie * Reuben * Oliver * George

    Elaine and Igna sound best

    A lot of the names you have on your list sound either old-fashioned or current-day. Why not go with Beatrix, which ties in the "ix" sound, but sounds different from Dion?
