I agree that what makes a name a “literary name” is really very subjective. Any name could meet the definition, depending on why it was chosen. What makes a name “literary” is when it is specifically chosen for its literary significance - either in honor of an author that the parents have found inspirational, after a character, or even because of the symbolic meaning of the name as a word. Arguably, the process of naming is always literary; it is putting your child’s identity into a word, in consideration of what that word means culturally and all connotations derived from its sound, appearance on paper, and prior uses as a name or otherwise. Admittedly, though, I think most people associate the idea of having a literary name with being named after an author or character - but again, the literariness of the name is not inherent to the name itself, but rather is found in the reason it was chosen. There are lots of children named [name]William[/name], and probably only a few that are so named because of their parents’ love of [name]Shakespeare[/name] - only those few have literary names. Of course, when a famous author or character has a name that is otherwise extremely obscure, most people will think of the literary reference right away and the assumption will be that the reference is why the name was chosen.
Anyway, I’ve rambled on for too long, but my point is that you shouldn’t pick a name because it is a “literary name” - according to someone else - unless you feel you have a personal literary connection to the name; otherwise, it’s just a name you like the sound of and not literary at all. In that sense it is very difficult for anyone to actually recommend a literary name to someone else, especially without a lot more information.
Of course, if you would like to name your daughter after any important woman author (with or without feeling a literary connection) because you think that is a great type of person to be named after (and it is:) ), then here are just a couple of suggestions (in consideration of your preferred initials):
