Strong, non-frilly name

I’m looking for girls names that are feminine but strong with no frills. I don’t like unisex names so those are out. I would like them to be easy to pronounce and have strong women as namesakes. Also, I think I will would like to avoid cutesy nicknames, but I would still use the perfect name if it had such a nickname.
Any suggestions I may like?
Currently my favorites are
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f]
[name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Paige[/name_f]

[name_f]TIA[/name_f]!
