Is the answer to this

EDGEWORTH?

My compound name gives value to a geometric place

It gives worth (value) to an edge (geometry).

An economic box gives me a famous pace

Refers to the Edgeworth Box named after Francis Ysidro Edgeworth, an economist.

A female author less known but existed pretty well

This refers to Francis’ aunt, Maria Edgeworth, an author of children’s novels.

But many people know me fictitiously, sad to tell

The perhaps more famous Edgeworth is Miles Edgeworth, a character from Ace Attorney.
