Names that would fit the Angel of Destruction

Searched: names + destruction, baby names + destruction, thinkbabynames.com, 20000-names.com, name + pit, names + pit, "names meaning pit"

One of my main characters is a teenage girl who has the ability to see reapers (angels/souls that help the dead move on) and slowly becomes obsessed with Sam, the actual Angel of Death (though she thinks he's just a reaper). It turns out, later on, that the reason she can see reapers and is so obsessed is that she is the reincarnated angel of destruction, Abaddon/Apollyon.

I'd like to give her a name that isn't obvious (which is why Kali is out), but has something to do with her true nature. Abaddon is said to be responsible for sealing Satan away for one thousand years, and rules over the Pit (assumed to be Hell)- which Abaddon actual means. Abaddon is rather ambiguous when it comes to being good and evil, so I also don't want a name that screams out good or evil.

So far, the names I've found are either too rare to saddle a seemingly normal teenager with, or too obvious. Any other suggestions? The ones I've found so far are: Kali, Eris, Lorelai, Laufeia, Deyanirea and Monica. Right now, I'm leaning towards Monica, but Monica would be after a woman who prays to save her son from destruction- and it doesn't really fit the character. I just want a name that kind of fits her character: someone who means well, but ends up causing a lot of, well, destruction.

Thanks for any suggestions!


Edit: Thanks everyone! The suggestions were awesome.
