Names like Cordelia

I like how it is unusual, with roots and sounds slightly fancy...but the sound is not exactly what I am looking for. Any suggestions?

Note: I would prefer to avoid names ending in -a, just a pet peeve of mine.) Other names I am fond of; Genevieve, Rosalind, Beatrix, Calypso. Also please don't suggest any more Shakespeare as I have been through all of them!

Thanks! smile

Cordelia reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. Cordelia was the name she wanted to call herself.

Watch Angel instead, she is less of a bitch then.

OP - William the Bloody?

I loved Cordelia. DH did not...
We called DD Romily, which I think has a similar feel!
I too went through my complete works of Shakespeare grin but other names on my shortlist were Aurelia, Aeris, Kennedy, Viola (I know, Shakespeare again!).
