What’s in a name?

So I’m starting the rough outline of my next book series (it’ll probably be a trilogy set in the Ria Miller universe but in a different part of America) and one of the hardest parts is coming up with a decent name for my main character. I kinda feel like the main character’s name helps set the tone for the entire series.
For instance, in the earliest outlines of the Ria Miller series, Ria was actually named Cadence. Somehow I don’t think Cadence Miller and the Monsters would’ve had the same ring to it, and I don’t think Cadence Miller would be the same foul-mouthed, big-hearted character.
Also, in the very, very, very earliest drafts of the Demons of Sedona series, back when I had no idea what I was doing, Tobin was named Geru. I’m pretty glad that didn’t happen.
Anyway, I’ve got no idea what this character will be named yet, and I’m excited to see how it all shakes out.
