Appropriate timing I know And no, not strictly a "baby" name.
I'm not pregnant, or likely to be anytime soon, but just about to kick off a a novella in this competition: http://www.kernelmag.com/editors-blog/4003...-of-nanowriwee/
So, I find myself in the situation where I will soon need to name a young, female, outback-based Aussie cop.
I want something that says "Aussie". But not Sheila, and that's all I can think of right now

For the character your describing I imagined a name that had quite a tom boyish style nickname
Beatrice (Bertie, like Bertie Blackman)
Maxine (max or Maxy)
Georgina/Georgia (george or Georgie)

How old is the character and is the novel set in current times or part? That makes a difference, because if it's set in 2013, you'd be very unlikely to find a young Cheryl or Sharon.
