I know of these:

- Arwen (Tolkien)
- Ayla (Jean Auel)
- Miranda (Shakespeare)
- Pamela (Philip Sydney)
- Sabrina (John Milton)
- Vanessa (Jonathan Swift)
- Ronja/Ronia (Astrid Lindgren)
- Atreyu (Michel Ende) has already been mentioned.

Maybe Jessica also was invented by Shakespeare.

Do you know of more such names? Or did these names exist before the poet etc. used it?

"You sought a flower and found a fruit. You sought a spring and found a sea. You sought a woman and found a soul. You are disappointed."
"It does not become me to make myself smaller than I am." (Edith Södergran 1891-1923)
