Pls help me with spunky/feisty/spirited baby girl name ideas

We're having a bit of a complicated pregnancy this time around and we really feel like this little girl is a fighter. So we'd like to give her a more feisty/spunky/spirited name to reflect the situation. My DH and I tend to like shorter names and nothing too radical, though I favor less common names.

Ruby is on our short list, so that will give you an indication of our style.

Any ideas?

I appreciate ANY input. I feel like I'm just glossing over names in name books these days. Could really use some fresh ideas...

I love the name Piper! Not too common but not too out there, short and sweet. My DH nixed it though

Scarlett? That's the first thing that came to mind. Scarlett O'Hara is one fiesty lady.

Re: Pls help me with spunky/feisty/spirited baby girl name ideas

I love the name Ruby. It's my youngest dd's middle name. And Scarlett is great too. I think the "red" of the names makes them feisty!! I actually call my dd Ruby when she is being extra feisty.

Vivian? possibly with nickname Vivi
Livie
Abby - wouldn't nomally think of this one, but if you knew this little Abby I know - very fiesty - she has a serious heart condition, multiple surgeries, but keeps on fighting and coming right back through every obstacle. Incredible.

Any classically "boy" nickname on a little girl is also fiesty, IMO - for example, Charley, Tommie, or Frankie. You could always go with Charlotte, Thomasina, or Frances/Francesca but use the nickname for when she is little, but then she could have a more "formal" name, if she would like, for when she grows up to be a Doctor.
