Name Suggestions Please


When I wrote my first manuscript, I knew the main character's name before I typed a word. Now that I've started my second story, I have a mental picture of my main character and what she's like, but every time I try a name, it doesn't feel right.

She's an ordinary girl in every way, the overlooked sidekick to a popular, beautiful girl. She's into photography, and everyone knows her as Natalia's friend instead of her name. So, I want her to have a good name, but I just can't think of it. In fact, I don't plan on saying her name pretty late in the book.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the suggestions!
I love names too...I used to check out babynames.com all the time. I would need about ten kids to use all the names I love.
I just don't have one for her yet, but I love your list. :)
Thanks again for the help.
