Can Someone Help Me Name My Character?

Ok well, so the girl that I need help naming plays a very emotional and important role in the story, as the main character's best friend. She is 16 and has curly black hair that is usually in a braid. Her eyes are a crystalline blue and she has a very pretty smile. She says that her past is a bit "hazy," as her parents were alcoholics, who were arrested and she was forced to live in foster care for the next 13 years. She barely remembers any of this though. She is very shy at first and barely speaks to the main character, but then, they become closer until finally they become best friends, each helping each other rise up from their pasts and look onto the future. In the end she is cheerful, sweet, optimistic, hopeful, and caring. Then she is executed secretly by the government because of her best friend's accidental meddling in the governments classified plans and her doing something that makes the government even more angry. This causes the main character to fall into severe depression.

Well, as you can see, I've figured out the character, but I'm not sure what to name her. I like the name Evie but I'm really not sure, if you have any suggestions please name them! Thanks!

Update:

Oh and um, I forgot to mention, it's a girl

Update 2:

Oh and Im sorry, I messed up with some of the sentences, I was nervous about something, she doesn't remember her parents, sorry!

    you didn't forget to mention she's a girl-you said 'she' so many times and the fifth word is girl!!

    It all depends on what kind of novel, Comics, medieval, fantasy, outerspace...

    Outerspace, you would do names like trilion and Jenicity, make up really I don't know, 'snazzy' names.

    Medieval, use old fashion names, google medieval names and you should find quite a few.

    Fantasy set now you would just use general names, Alex, Jack, Ben, Shane, Bryce, Julian, Kyle, Alyssa, Emily, Lana, Belinda, Jessica, Renee

    It all depends on what setting.

    Naming your character is really up to you. If you like the name 'Evie' then stick with it, because when you start planning or thinking of what happens in your story. You will relate more if you have a character with a name you like.

    Embracing the girl's life though what you have told me, I feel she has experienced a hard life and since her parents are alcoholics. How about naming her after one of names of Alcohol out there. I am thinking of her calling 'Jackie', but she got used to people called her 'Jack'. Parents named her after Jack Daniels, and coincidentally her surname is 'Daniels' too. Ha ha, but that is up to you. With 'Jack' other character may assume she is a boy.

    There are Serena and Margaritta.

    Another is alternate to Evie, the french name, I love to use is Eveline.

    Hope this helps

    Actually, you didn't forget to mention it's a girl: "Ok well, so the girl that I need help naming..." ;)

    How about:

    Caroline

    Maisy

    Dominique

    Rachel

    Jacquelyn (Jackie)

    Etta

    Emma

    Nicole

    I'm also a bit confused here: She barely remembers her time in foster homes, despite having lived in them her entire life and only gotten out of one three years ago?

    Sounds like a great story!

    How about Elaina, Juliet, Caroline, Mackenzie, Lindsey, Emorie, Lucy, or Violet?
