Issues

I am writing a story, but I can't decide what to name my main character.  I've changed her name like three times now.  I want it to be something a little different, but not too weird.  And I want it to mean something.  And something cool, not something like "wheat field."  Which is apparently what the name Riley means.  AND I don't want people to associate her with a different character.  For instance: I like the name Ariel.  But obvs everyone is going to think of the Little Mermaid when they see that name.  I can't take this!

How am I even going to begin to name my kids.  This does not bode well.
