Those names are only strong by association though Mind you, some names would ever be considered strong so I know what you mean.

(Didn't J K Rowling use her initials in order to cloud the issue of her sex btw?)

What about other surnames in your family - your mother's/grandmother's maiden name? You need something there's a story to I think.

Or [initials] French

How about a version of your MN name made to sound like a real person? Geraldine Pope, or Genevieve Pope for that French sound?
