A name for a character thats disconnected from herself

So, I've been having a this story idea involving how having various superpowers from a young age would influence people as the grow up. One key character has the ability to tap into her past and future senses and it gives her a disconnect from reality due to how it wrecks havoc on her developing social skills, and for the life of me I can't figure out a good name for her. She's been under the working name of Kayrin, however I'd like a name that can provide a little more insight on her character. Any ideas?

Oooooh. I like that name. However, I'm seeing if I can find find something that doesn't quite stick out as much. Something a little more common, but not as common as say, Emily.

Perhaps something like Mira, middle name Gemma? Or put them together as a double name: Mira-Gemma.

According to Behind the Name, Maya means "illusion" in Sanskrit.

Other ideas: Fay(e), Elfreda, Avery. (They all have "fairy" or "elf" in their derivations.) There's also the Hungarian name Tünde, which is a literary invention based on the word tündér 'fairy'.

Maybe Cassie, short for Cassandra? A little obvious, perhaps...Sage or Sibyl could give you a more generic but similar feel.

What about Faith? It sounds like Fate, which is tied into the past and the future, and being able to see the future would do weird things to faith in God and faith in oneself.  Do you have faith that the future will be better?

Thanks a ton for the input! (and sorry for the delay in getting back to this. Writers block is a thing)

I'm particularly fond of Avery, so I'm gonna go with that. :)
