Default How do you choose a character name?

Names are an important part of a person’s identity, and that is no less true than for the characters we create. So how do you go about selecting a name for a new character? Do you have a list of favorite names that you refer to? Do you choose a name based on its meaning? Or do you select one because it sounds cool? And at what point in the creating process do you choose a name? Is it one of the first things you decide on, or do you develop other aspects like personality or history before deciding on a name?

Tell us all about your process for choosing a character name here!

Let you tell you I have the WORST time picking names. LAST names please don't even get me started on those. I don't really have a process... but I do. Sometimes I start by looking up unique baby names. Unique? Why you may ask? I have a very common girl name, in a class of a little over 150 students there were exactly 12 Sarahs. Crazy right? Maybe it's my birth year or something.

Anywho... I look up unique, Uncommon and least used/popular names. For the most part I match names with personally. Cinnamon = Spice. Cinna is a bit spicy. Sometimes I pick names based on what some family members are named. Caroline, Phillip, Emma, Katerina all old names. So on and so on. Sometimes I get inspiration from a current book or television show or movie that I'm watching. That's normally how Characters pop in my head. It may be a huge headache to choose names for our characters but it is one of the things I love the most about creating a character.
