Help! Indian Girl Names

Hello Berries! I need some help from you guys.
[name_f]My[/name_f] name is Amitha, which I don’t love too much. I always hated the fact that I could never find personalized key chains or pocketknives in souvenir shops, and how I always had to correct people’s pronunciation. So I want my daughters to have traditionally [name_f]Indian[/name_f] names with easy, recognizable nicknames (like Sarojani nn Ginny).
Any ideas??
