names from a fairy tale

I need to go back and re-name some characters.

I've got Snow-White. I've also got Boney. I need some other names of that vein. . . . Silverhair, perhaps. (If you have not heard of her, she was the main character of The Three Bears between the nasty old woman who was the first to appear in writing, and the Goldilocks we know today.) Or Catskin or All-Kinds-Of-Fur,

Not too many. I've got a number of men named some variation of John, of course. Vasilisa and variations on Catherine and Anne. But when you have one fairy tale character named Snow White, it's wise to show that it's a pattern, not a fluke.
