Name The Character Contest

As many of you know, I've been working on book one in my Aumelan series, Aumelan.  It's been taking quite a bit of research, a lot of it set in vast caverns.  I've asked for opinions on Facebook about what types of pets they might have and got some great ideas. 

Now, as I revise, I'm finding I need one more character to fill a gap in the Aumelan household.  Let me tell you a little bit about her...

She's the older sister of Dee who is Chad's (the Main Character) favored server.  Approx 23yo, long dark brown hair, brown eyes, 5'6", very shy.  She's on the clumsy side and moves a bit too slow.  

She needs a name.  How would you guys like to help name her? This name should be a simple one.  Her people only have one name and are known by the family they serve.  For example, Dee is Dee of the Aumelans.  So this character would be _____ of the Aumelans.

I've decided to run a contest and take suggestions from all of you.  I've posted a Rafflecopter on my Facebook Fan page and added it here so you can just click and enter.  You can suggest up to 10 names. :)

If I find one I think fits her personality, the name will be in my upcoming Aumelan book.  And if you suggested it, I'll send you a signed copy of Aumelan when it's published!  

Those who offer suggestions but aren't chosen, I'll send a PDF copy of Cornerstones: The First Ten Chapters From Cornerstone Deep, a sampler booklet which introduces you to the Chronicles of Shilo Manor series.  So, everyone gets something for helping out. :)

Sound fun? Let's do it!

Aumelan blurb
Dee can stand before Chad and yet she is out of his reach, the love for his hostess forbidden. Seeking a way to her heart, he leaves his heritage behind and steps beyond the safety of his nation's borders to find a way to survive without energy from a host.
To Chad, love recognizes no boundaries. But can Dee see past her lowly status and find the courage to make her desires known?
