A more appropriate meme might be those who condemn sensual heretical Western liturgical music while they laud the conservatism of their local ROCOR parish where nothing but modern Russian polyphony is heard.

You just ruined Agni Parthene for me.  Thanks.

Er, no. The resemblance is purely superficial.

The only way Agni Parthene could be conceived of as "Western" is its regularly metered, verse structure (as opposed to most Orthodox hymns which are prose-poems) but it's not like the West invented poetic meter either.

The vast majority of hymns in the Church (Canons) are regularly metered, verse structure hymns. 
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Some other suggestions; Nymphodora, Minodora, Theodula, Glykeria, Radegunda, Cunegunda (the last two only apply if she is western rite).
PS
Nicholas,
I wasted two good hours of my life searching for a picture but couldn't quite find a satisfactory one. I actually would have one, but she's an acquaintance and I can't do this to her.

I'd like to build a little house on her prairie, if you know what I mean.

And by "know what I mean", I mean living as brother and sister in an angelic marriage. Unfortunately I can no longer pursue monasticism. I know that demonic fantasies about her exposed neckline in this pic would surface years later during extended seclusion.

In monasteries . what name will u pick William?
I would have just googled the names of every Orthodox saint and then chosen the one with the fewest results.

That way I might be the first person in america to have a totally obscure one.
