Sometimes consonant stacking is required. In my example, it is present in Ruritanian names to give them that "Germanic" flavor, and in Dark Elven names to make them sound more evil and menacing. However, you are right in that it should be avoided for plot important characters. In my game, the most often encountered Ruritanians are named Melle von Ruritania (party member), Roxanne von Ruritania (important NPC) and Solomon von Cid (party member, the airship engineer of the game). Little or no Schs and Tschs here, and easily pronounced. The most often encountered Dark Elf is named Lady Veyturi, similarly no "evil" Rz's and Rzh's that are often encountered in Dark Elven,I can only tell you what you shouldn't do. Try to avoid consonant-on-consonant contact. Compose your names out of syllables rather than individual letters.
Names like Midna dont roll off the tongue as well as Midina.
