    As long as we're on a Shakespeare bent:
    Titania (Midsummer Night's Dream)
    Celia (As You Like It)
    Audrey (As You Like It)
    Ophelia (Hamlet)
    Cordelia (King Lear)- I really do love this one and I think it would go so well with your other names. She could go by Cory if she's more of a tomboy, or Delia if she's more of a girly girl, or you could use the full name in all its literary glory.
    Rosalind/Rosaline (Romeo and Juliet, Love's Labour's Lost, As You Like It)...Shakespeare really liked this name. I like Lindy as a nickname.
    Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing)
    Margaret (Much Ado About Nothing)
    Bianca (Taming of the Shrew, Othello)
    Desdemona (Othello)
    Emilia (Othello, A Winter's Tale)
    Katharina nn Kate (Taming of the Shrew)
    Ariel (in Shakespeare, most often a boys name, as in The Tempest. Now most associate it with the Disney princess)
    Iris (The Tempest)
    Juno (The Tempest)
    Miranda (The Tempest)
    Silvia (Two Gentlemen of Verona)
    Lucetta (Two Gentlemen of Verona)
    Verona (place name, Two Gentlemen and Romeo and Juliet)
    Florizel (Winter's Tale)
    Hermione (Winter's Tale)
    Paulina (Winter's Tale)
    Juliet (do you even have to ask?) also Juliette, Julietta

    or if Shakespeare's not your thing, here are some Jane Austen names:
    Harriet (Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Alley)
    Anne (Pride and Prejudice, Emma)
    Charlotte (Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Alley) Lottie as a nickname would be adorable!
    Maria (Pride and Prejudice)
    Mary (Pride and Prejudice)
    Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion)
    Louisa (Pride and Prejudice)
    Lydia (Pride and Prejudice)
    Catherine nn Kitty (Pride and Prejudice)
    Emma (Emma, The Watsons)
    Clara (Emma, Sanditon)
    Bella (Emma)
    Jane (Emma)
    Augusta (Emma, Mansfield Park, The Watsons)
    Selina (Emma)
    Sally (Sense and Sensibility)
    Eliza (Sense and Sensibility)
    Elinor (Sense and Sensibility)
    Anna-Maria (Sense and Sensibility)
    Marianne (Sense and Sensibility)
    Margaret (Sense and Sensibility)
    Henrietta (Persuasion)
    Alicia (Persuasion, Lady Susan)
    Jemima (Persuasion)
    Sophia (Persuasion)
    Penelope (Persuasion)
    Lucy (Mansfield Park)
    Betsy (Mansfield Park)-a little old fashioned, but it would make a cute nn for Elizabeth
    Rebecca (Mansfield Park) Beck makes a cute nn
    Isabella (Northanger Alley)
    Alice (Northanger Alley)
    Emily (Northanger Alley)
    Dorothy (Northanger Alley)
    Eleanor (Northanger Alley) if Elinor isn't what you're looking for. Personally, I love Eleanora nn Nora
    Matilda (Northanger Alley)
    Frederica (Lady Susan)
    Susan (Lady Susan)
    Diana (Sanditon)
    Esther (Sanditon)
    Letitia (Sanditon)
    Agatha nn Aggy
    Cassandra nn Sandry
    Sandrilina nn Sandry (not Austen, but Cassandra reminded me of it)

    Other literary names:
    Emerson nn Emmy
    Harper (what about double barreling this? Harper-Mae, Harper-Lynn, Harper-Beth or Harper-Rose are cute)
    Mallory nn Mal or Lory

    hope this helps!

    I immediately thought of Minerva nn Min. That's an unusual one I absolutely adore

    Some others that you might consider:

    Rhonda or Rhoda
    Corinne or Coralie
    Annis or Enna
    Danica or Danae
    Deena or Deneen

    I just ran across a Buffy Allison and a Mildrena at work the other day. Thought they were inspiringly unique....

    Your style and prior references caught my eye because both Ruby and Logan are our niece/nephew. Ruby's sister is Lexi Morgan and had Logan been a girl, he would have been Mya.

    Make sure you don't forget to give us feed back if we are hot or cold with our suggestions!!

    I think the perfect girl name is: Arden!
    I love the way it looks & sounds- it's feminine without being too sweet, I can see a lawyer or teacher or SAHM with the name Arden.
    I used it for my daughter! I broke the Berry rules (sorry Berries!) and gave it a alternative spelling: Ardynn (her name is Ardynn Jubilee- but mn Juliette was a close second!).
    I loooove it and I thought it may appeal to your southern sensibilities!

    Harriet - Harriet the Spy, Harriet Beecher Stowe

    Ramona, Beatrice - Ramona the Brave
