Naming Five Characters!My story:
Genre: Sci-Fi Fantasy
Okay, so my story is centered around the elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air) and Time. I need character names (First, middle, last) for each character. I would prefer each character to have a name relating to there element.
Female. Blonde hair and grey eyes. Medium height. Irritable, competitive, easily hurt, seems unemotional, logical, clever, is capable of fighting with many different weapons including one sword, two swords, bow & arrow, mace, spear, hand-to-hand, etc.
Male. Light blonde hair, blue eyes. Tall. Lanky. Talkative, friendly, funny. Most-used weapon is sword.
Male. Dark brown hair, hazel eyes. Medium height. Competitive, logical, uppity, clever. Most used weapon is spear.
Female. Light brown hair, blue eyes. Medium height. Friendly, popular, funny. Most used weapon is mace.
Genderless. Hair color always changing, eye color emerald. Kind, gentle, sweet, capable of using any weapon. Please give unisex name.My favorites at the moment:
Clara Imogene;; Corinne Edana;; Jenna Imogene
Still working on some boy names!

I wrote a somewhat similar story and have assisted people writing element stories in the past, so these names should all have appropriate meanings.
Fire: Fiammetta, Risa/Rysa, Calida, Hestia, Vesta, Fina, Adena, Kenna, Seraphina/Seraphine, Azar, Shula. You could also go simple and just call her Fire, or a fire-related name like Ember, Ash, etc.
Water: Aquarius, Nile, Kai, Fjord, Atlantis, River, Lake, Neptune, Bayou, Caspian, Poseidon, Arlen, Calder, Irving,
Earth: Gaius, Adam, Terran, Demeter/Demetrius/Dimitri et.al, Joran. Atlas is a bit of a stretch (held up the earth).
Air: Anemone, Zephyrine, Aura (you could use Aurora or Aurelia with Aura as a nn), Haizea, Makani all have air/wind meanings, but if you'd be willing to go to sky/moon/stars/etc the possibilities are far more vast.
Time: Cronus/Kronos (traditionally male but similar to unisex Carys/Caris), Dor, Elian/EilianAmedeo - Enjolras - Dimitri - Victor - Leo - Nikolai - Mischa - Liam - Benedict - Milo - Frederick - Isaac - FitzwilliamRosaline - Mirabelle - Artemis - Piper - Coralie - Ophelia - Elisabeth - Titania - Elowen - Stella - Andromeda - Thalia - Astrid

Fire: Ember, Blaire, Ashe, Bridgid/Bridgette, Conley, Blaise, Kalama, Phoenix, Reese, McKenna, Pele. Names I think of being fiery but don't exactly mean fire: Valentina, Fiona, Faye, Rowan, Rory, Valerie, Scarlett, Adair
Water: River, Rio, Nils, Monroe, Dylan, Bay, Ford, Rain, Calder, Hudson, Harbor, Blue, Marshall, Wade, Frost, Jordan, Dune, Murphy, Pike, Tide, Cane, Teal, Cyan, Cerulean, Ronan, Marlow
Earth: Sterling, Ellery, Flint, Orion, James, Dagan, Oakley, Cliff, Kyle, Heathcliff, Birch, Wolfe, Grove, Lowell, Peregrine, Arthur, Lorcan, Auberon, Barrett, Channing, Conan, Leo/Leon. These are mainly animal names but I think some kind of nature name would work here.
Air: Merle, Skye/Skylar, Dove, Wren, Estelle, Stella, Cloud, Raven, Aurelia, Celeste, Celia, Aurora, Selene, Nova, Luna, Lyra, Vega, Capella. I think just names that are kinda lofty work too for example: Elodie, Leonora, Isadora, Elowen, Mirabelle, Annabel, Arabella, Genevivie, Lucia (loo-sha), Helena, Lydia, Rosalie, Cordelia
Time: I can't think of how any relate to time so I'm just gonna give unisex names. Nyx, Aubrey, Jude, Elliott, Auden, Fable, Neo, Arden, Penn, Blake, Calypso, Percy, Ellery, Casey,
Ember, Rain, Cliff, Skye, and Nyx - if you were going for obvious about their element kinda names
Ashe, Dylan, Flint, Celia, and Blake - a little more covert but not completely secret
Valerie, Ronan, Leon, Aurelia, and Fable - don't have an exact meaning of element but have some connection to them
** Fiona, Murphy, Oakley, Lucia, and Auden - my favorites out of all of them. Fiona makes me think of a fiery girl and the color red, Murph is an easy to get along with, strong, but kinda goofy name that means sea warrior, Oakley is long for an Oak tree which are strong and earthly, I think the sound of Loo-sha is a lot like the sound the wind makes when it passes by, and Auden is unisex and means old friend so I think it fits.
hope this helps a little! good luckMy Favorites:
Colette Kristine. Alice Evanna. Gemma Elizabeth. Mabel Verity. Rosalie Grace.
Jack Jeffrey. Carson Luke. Felix James. Leo Patrick. River Justin.
can't wait to marry my love!

This sounds like a lovely idea I don't know if you are looking for more "realistic" names or not, but if names more on the creative end of the spectrum are ok, I would suggest doing something like choosing a more obviously elemental-related name for the middle, and maybe a less so one for the first. Last names could be Latin-sounding or something? You could end up with something like Brisa Aero Caelum, which literally translates to "breeze air sky", for your air character, and there are certainly many other combinations possible.
Hope this helps
