Puppy Name Help | One Syllable Girl Names!

We are in search of a name for our (female) puppy! We have a (male) dog named [name_u]Gus[/name_u] (short for [name_m]Augustus[/name_m]) and are looking for a one syllable name for our girl coming home in a couple weeks to match [name_u]Gus[/name_u]. Extra points if it’s short for something long and old to match [name_m]Augustus[/name_m]. For example, a name that we have been considering is [name_f]Bea[/name_f] (short for [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]) but would like other options as well. I also love [name_u]Sage[/name_u], [name_u]Rue[/name_u], and [name_u]Lou[/name_u] (short for [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]) but my mom isn’t crazy about those. I attached a photo of her for reference! If relevant, she will grow up to be very small in size (6 to 7 pounds at the most) and ginger in color.

Anastasia is simply gorgeous, I can’t believe it didn’t cross my mind. It even matches perfectly with [name_m]Augustus[/name_m]. Right on the list it goes! Thank you so much.
