A good last name!

Hey guys! I am beginning a new book called "The Sun's Medallion" and am looking for a fitting last name for my protagonist who is a young, independent woman who is an ER doctor in the Colorado Rockies who gets thrown into an international treasure hunt one cold night. Her first name is Venice, although I am open to changing it to make it fit her last name. I need a last name that sounds good after the word "Doctor". Please get back to me on this ASAP. Thank you all so much for your help! :)

Perhaps something common given the "exotic" first name. A simple surname "Smith" also contrasts well with the treasure hunt "glamour" or "fast paced tale". My 2 cents !

Awesome! Thanks for your feedback guys! Daniel, I really like your thinking! I never approached it from that angle. Although I'm not sure I love the sound of "Venice Smith", I'm thinking I might now try for a simpler last name following your train of thought. Ideas?
