    Thoughts on these character names?

    Okay, so I want to know what you think of these character names; do you like the sound, do they suit the description of the character, etc.
    The story is set in a 'recovering-from-an-apocalypse', steampunk future. Imagine there was some big disaster due to global warming or WWIII and heaps of people died and society collapsed. Well, this is set another couple hundred years on from that, so humanity has sort of rebuilt and is okay, but the world is entirely different.
    I want the characters to have names that are familiar, but also a bit weird. I want it to sound like a progression from today's names. Also they all need middle names.
    With that in mind, here are the names:

    Halloran Guernsey - 22yo, nn 'Hal'. A forgetful 'mad scientist' type with wide eyes and crazy hair. Sweet and shy, he can be a bit of a pushover. Biracial with sable skin, brown hair and amber eyes. Tall and skinny.
    Mateo Sangrante - 20yo, nn 'Teo'. Confident and flirty, but sometimes snobby or insensitive. A strong jaw and broad shoulders. Tanned with brown eyes and shoulder-length wavy dark brown hair. He comes from a very rich family so feel free to pile on the middle names.
    Ansa Tallemy - 20yo. Guarded and somewhat uptight, but fiercely loyal and a 'mother hen'. Curvy, with Middle Eastern heritage. Striking green/hazel eyes, and dark, straight, shoulder length hair.
    Stellan Class - 26yo. Serious but with a dry, sarcastic sense of humour. Very tall and muscular. Short, neat blonde hair, pale skin and blue eyes.
    Casendra Lendere - 25yo, nn 'Cass'. Very open and caring, but stubborn. She is sometimes willing to do bad things for 'the greater good' and needs the team to help her keep an eye on that aspect of herself. Athletic with ebony skin, up swept brown eyes and black hair in cornrows to her mid-back.
    ????????? - 19 yo female. Witty and 'pixie-like'. She always sees the best in people, but can be naive. Short and slender with an upturned nose. Pale, freckled skin, long strawberry blonde hair and dark blue eyes. I have know clue what her name should be but I want it to be 'mischievous' sounding.

    Okay, that's all of them! Please, be honest and don't be afraid to criticise.

    I love the middle name 'Yvaine' for Cass! It just feels right for the character. And I'll definitely have to think about Wynn and Penrose for my mystery girl, because they're both calling me.
