I had completely forgotten Grace! How silly of me!

As far as virtue names go, Patience, Constance and Felicity were very popular in times past, though they're not used so much anymore.

Regarding plant names, I think Holly, Poppy and Violet are still popular. There's also Fern, the little girl character from the children's book classic Charlotte's Web.
