Help with girl names...?

I'm writing a skit inspired by "The Wizard of Oz" and I'm looking for three girl names in replace of Huck, Hickory, and Zeke (Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion, respectively). I would prefer them to be of Parisian/French origins.

Two of them need two start with "H" and the third with the letter "Z". I would also like them to mean something that describes each character. For example, intelligent/clever for Huck/Scarecrow, loving/compassionate for Hickory/Tin Woodman, and courageous/strong for the Cowardly Lion.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks!

Update:

Also, if you have any suggestions for a name similar to Alimira Gulch, the Wicked Witch of the West, I would be most grateful to hear/read them.

And to Suzanne, forgive me if I sound rude, but my script is for a church camp. Nothing serious. So I will disagree with you in saying my idea will work. But even if I were writing a movie script, it would still work. There are many Wizard of Oz spoofs or remakes as there are for many other award winning films, musicals, books, and television shows.
