Michard Lyonson / First name was random generated, last came from Edana, a Bresk faction member who he was a sibling to.
Xenthym Kane / First name came from Koko who named her after one of her OCs, last name from the WWE wrestler.
Rienna Rosewood / First name came from modifying the first name of the BattleTech character Ranna Kerensky, last from the character Billy Rosewood in Beverly Hills Cop.
Marissa Thorne / First name random generated, last name from the Red Dragon boss in Pools of Darkness.
Selena Vogel / First name from Catwoman, last name from the Gargoyles character Preston Vogel.
Angela Karnstein / First just liked the sound, last from Carmilla Karnstein in the eponymous vampire story predating Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Carmilla Tarasth / First from the same source as above, last picked by Koririn.
Ariel Mikain / First from Disney's Little Mermaid, last from Sierra Mikain, a vampire in Suikoden 2.

Tobin Sett - V3: Tobin Bell is the actor who played Jigsaw in the Saw films, always loved the name. Sett was the god of death or something, and I was playing a necromancer..
I normally flit between Tobin and Tomas as first names (the second a different spelling of my own name) and use a variety of surnames, some of my favourites:
Lusk: George Lusk was one of the suspects in the Jack the Ripper case
Koeseph: A play on Kossoff, the surname of the guitarist in the rock band Free
Vhekt: Just sounded horrid, and fitted the character.
Bhast: Stolen from an EFU NPC
Mharet: A play on Mahrez, a player for Leicester City (I just liked the name)
Ronya Smith - Based of Ronja Rövardotter, then I named her Smith cause it was a common name. I wanted a average, bland, ranger who didn't stand out.
Erihnienia Realan - NwN generated elf name with a few added characters
Cliff Diver - Generic NwN generated name, don't recall her name since she lasted 10 hours.
Carnelian Tourmaline aka "Gems" - Since she was a forest gnome, I just named her after two common gems. Hence her nickname, but she gave herself that nickname :P
Freya - I believe Savn helped me pick it. But it was based of the nordic goddess Freja, whose chariot was drawn by two cats, since Freya was a weretiger it was a nice connections. She didn't have a lastname, cause she was a bastard child of House Wyvernspur.

Philip Randles: My own name, I'm not creative and said "fuck it".
Loic Ehagra: @Vagabond3103 to thank for this. The amazing name of Low Orbit Ion Cannon. Fucking beautiful.
