>Polly Pepper in The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew by Margaret <!> Sidney is really Mary (not Paula or Pauline) Pepper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Little_Peppers), and I've never heard of Polly being a nickname for Paula or Pauline.  But then she's got a sister named Phronsie, which has got to be one of the more unusual character names I've ever run across.

At a guess, Sophronia.
