'Important' sounding girls names?

My favourite girls' name - Arabella - has been vetoed by DH, so I'm now starting from scratch.

I'd like DD to have a 'big' name, something strong but feminine, sounds important, but still quite pretty...

Also nothing too popular if possible.

Thoughts?

Boudicca?

More realistically: Artemis, Emmeline, Virginia, Charlotte, Ariadne, Hermia, Titania, Rosalind, Lucinda, Penelope, Constance, Willemina, Clementina?

I always felt that a name that ended on vowel sounds of e/i appear'soft'
So names like Eleanor, Megan, bromwen, Logan, Morgan, Harriet, alicia, Sarah, claudia etc sound more important than
Lily, Lucy, Anne, Katie, Sophie..
I think so...smile

I also think Madeleine is a strong, feminine name.
