Day Three-Character Names

My main character in the Ganzfield books, Maddie Dunn, has a rather matte, drab name. This just seemed to fit, especially since it made her the opposite of Bella Swann. I wanted Maddie to have a name that acted as social camouflage, blending her into her surroundings. It made her specialness seem all the more amazing, since she was such an everygirl.

So, what do you like in a character name? Rowling's all have deeper meanings, e.g. Remus Lupin. Many YA books have characters with unique names that make them stand out even before you get to know them.  Got a favorite?

BTW, the launch day giveaway will be open through tomorrow: http://thedisgruntledbear.blogspot.com/2011/08/book-launch-day-1.html, so please check it out if you haven't already.
