I can only imagine the issues. The few times I've written stories, I've had that same issue myself.

I used to keep phone books and baby name books in my classroom to help students come up with names.
One strong preference my students expressed was not having too many names start with the same letter. THE CRUCIBLE drove them nuts, but since it was based on history, we just had to deal with all the names beginning with P.


My favorite characters have just told me what their names are, and I've gone with that. Otherwise, I have to keep trying names until I find the one that works. It's funny how you know when it's right. I never tried two names before. I think that would confuse me even more.
