Question! How do you come up with names for fantasy characters?
Just like the title of this topic suggest, I would like to know how people are able to come up with some good names for characters and creatures in fantasy setting.
The reason I ask is that while I can came up with some ideas regarding the fantasy setting I would like to create in the future - probably very distant future, but still - I have serious problems with giving characters, creatures and deities some well-sounded and meaningful names. And since I would like to finally write down some of my ideas for (very) future use, it would be good for me to start using actual character's names than labels such as "Elven mage", "protagonist" "the litch" etc.
If you are able to share something interesting with me - I encourage you to do so. Thanks.
