Plain-ish (female) names that aren't overused?
I'm really not looking for anything weird and out there, but would like to step outside of the Emily, Sarah range. Thanks!

You could go plain Jane! Jane actually isn't that popular nowadays, so if the name is for a baby, she won't have a lot of other girls with the same name in her class.
Ava - another one that isn't really out there, but I don't know any Ava's, though you might.
Paige - sweet and simple, but I don't know any Paige's, either, but then again, that's just me.
Amelia - a little older, but still familiar, so it's not "out there".
Adelaide - again, older, but not completely unique and definitely not "new"
Clio - this was a muse in Greek mythology, and it's not as popular as Chloe, but similar enough not to sound "new"
Delilah - not super "plain", but it's sweet and will age well, if the name is for a baby
Eden - short and spunky but not unheard of...you could also go with cousin Edith
Evelyn - another older name, with a softer sound. Not mainstream but not alien, either
Holly - A bit more common than some other names, but not a staple in every classroom
Hailey - Again, a bit more common, but not up there with Sarah, Grace, Emily, etc. in popularity
Lily/Liliana - I don't have many encounters with these two names, though they're not far down on the charts
Luna - pretty and sweet, I don't know any Luna's but the name isn't unfamiliar
Lucy - older, again, and definitely not up there with the most popular names, but not so far down in popularity that people would have to process it :P
Morgan - I've known one Morgan, so it's a bit less common than the similar Megan, but with the same charm
Riley - this isn't a hugely popular name from my understanding, but it's getting closer to the top of the charts than other names on this list
Sadie - meaning "princess" in Hebrew, it's similar to popular Sarah, but not on the same level. Also, it sounds sweet and spunky at the same time!
Sage - I've only known one Sage, but it's not unheard of among popular names. It's a bit spunkier than sweet Paige, and has a nature feel to it.
