Make sure your character name is Genre Appropriate. Make sure if it's a Historical Fiction novel or takes place in a real time period that the name was used then. Or if it's a fictionalized place then you can be as creative as you wish.
Just have fun with naming your character. It is after all your story.

I am reading a book: A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer and one of the characters lived in London on Cheyne Walk, a ritzy neighborhood. I liked the look of the name Cheyne and once I researched the meaning I loved it even more. It's a strong and powerful name.
