I usually come up with at least personality first and then choose a name with meaning that fits the character. Sometimes there are exceptions to this and the name comes first, but I think a character's name is very important. I'll either make one up or choose from a list I have already or I'll search for names on baby name websites and look at the meanings lol

I usually think of a realistic region on earth where the game might take place, look at their cultures names and maybe combine a couple or find one you like.

Job description and hair colour really, Blue haired Knight, Purple haired Healer, Orange haired Elf Chemist. I really don't like meaningful names unless its meaningful that the character have a meaningful name.

My new level features a Jellyfish character who cannot love, because he electrocutes everything he touches.
I prefer single roommates. After a hard day, all you want is sleep. I went to bed at 12. I was awakened at 2 because of my roommate laughing and whispering and stuff with her boyfriend on the phone. I didn't want to yell at her so I had to bear that cringy lovey dovey convo for half an hour, before I got so bored that I fell asleep again.
