Please help us name our rescue kitty!

We adopted a 1 year old cat from our local shelter on Sunday. They had named her Batsy, although the name doesn't seem to suit her and I've no idea why they chose it. She is a beautiful grey with amber eyes. We want a name that suits her but that is also a bit unusual so this is her back story that may help:

She was taken to the shelter last October and it seems she was spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and then rehomed. Last month she was taken back to the shelter having been attacked by a dog so she is shaved all over her back and has some pretty big scars. She's doing really well and recovering, just has a bit of a scab left now that should fall off in the next few days and I'm pretty sure most of her fur will grow back. So, she is obviously a lucky, tough kitty!
As you can see from the pictures, she enjoys lying with her humans and she responds well to the kids stroking her, when she has had enough she goes into our room for a little while. She's a pretty affectionate cat and she's warming to us more and more as the days go by, spending more time in rooms with the family than alone in our room.
Please help us come up with a name for her! We have a few (Smokey, Shadow, Cinders, Ember) but they just don't seem to completely fit with her, if you know what I mean.
Any help appreciated!

Well, she reminds me of my cat who passed a year ago today. Her name was Sabrina. Do you like that?

I've always liked the name Greyson. Or Gracie.

Goodness, what a beautiful girl! But then, I am very partial to grays ;}

My friend named my cat 18 years ago - "Wintressia". I always liked the "Winter" association even though she's gray, not white - you could go with a variation of that.

Or something to do with "ash" - or even Phoenix since she's risen anew out of her past :}

Granite? Shale? Diamond (because she is, even if a little rough)?!
