Wow, there are so many names. How about taking names from your favorite show. And use the one that your character is most like.
Go to a name generator and you can find silly names, all different kinds. You can use mystical names, Bible names, hero names, etc.
Sookie (for a girl, one of my favorites. from true blood)
Jacob (from lost)
Sam, Dean (From supernatural)
Delilah, Dahlia
Are you looking for a male or female? What's their characteristics?
Hope this helps!

Search on the internet, that's what I do when I can't come up with names. I'm writing a story that takes place on Grece and I found a very extense list of Greek names with their meanings!

Oh, I am sorry, but you all are not getting what I meant. I am looking for names that you like (full names) and have some strong meaning in them. Yes, I could use a name generator, but those names never have any background or outside meaning. I also do not want to use names from TV or books, because it would look as though I am copying the characters.
