I'm just starting on a new idea for a story, and I've finished my character sketch for my main protagonist.
But she still needs a name.
My story takes place a few hundred years into the future, after modern civilization breaks down and a new one is formed. So I want her to have a name that no one would use today, but that's also easy enough to pronounce.
She is tall and tan, athletic, and doesn't fit the roles of women in her society. She has long dark hair. She's reserved and doesn't let anyone close to her.

I have a few ideas to give you a feel for what I'm looking for.
Freya, Aster, Lexis, Arden, Starling, Irina, Signe, Rowan, Seren, and Rheya are what I have so far.

I think for a character such as this that name meanings should be considered...

Nyx- means night (my favorite)
Lux- means light
Alexia- means defender
Nia- means radiance; brightness; purpose
Neve (NEEV)- means radiance; brightness; snow
Eden- means delight
Pax- means peace
Isis- means woman of the throne
Nadia- means hope
Nya/Nyah- means purpose
Anaya (Ah-nah-yah)- means God answered
Anika- means grace; favor; army; face; brilliance; form
Asha- means hope; life
Astrid- means God+fair; beautiful
Echo- means echo
Shadow- means shadow
Jinx- means magic charm
