    Desire
    Deliverance
    Prudence

    I love a lot of Colonial names(biased, I know). Primrose was on my short list.
    I also like Prudence nn Pru, as in Charmed and Patience. I think Remember is usable too but think about the conversation: "Hey, what's your name?" "Remember". Sounds funny, like she wants everybody not to forget her name but actually that's not a huge problem. You can always use it in the middle name slot.
    And from virtue names I also like Constance and Vera(faith).

    The only one I would caution you against is Deliverance. It's nice in theory, but the movie connotation is just too much. I wouldn't go there.

    I very much like Patience and Constance. Two of my favorite combos are May Constance and June Patience!
