Character Name Help!
My newest novel is futuristic, almost sci-fi. Think Divergent meets Hunger Games meets Harry Potter (but without magic). All characters have been trained as elite soldiers, and are all extremely intelligent.
Protagonist: 18-year-old girl. 5'6", but very slender, athletic build. She is strong, and able to sneak around easily. She has green/hazel eyes and long dark hair (that is always pulled back). She has a sister who less than one year younger, named Aila. Last name is under consideration. She keeps to herself most of time, only confiding in a close friend named Cora, her best friend/unspoken love (unnamed and will be listed next) and Aila. She will do anything for her sister, and is always noble and moral. She hates fighting, yet does it because she is trained to and must. However she is extremely good at what she does (think special ops and hand-to-hand combat). Her name should be unique, and almost dark.
Best friend/ other main character: Male, 19. Comes off as brooding, but is actually just good at keeping to himself. He rarely lets out his emotions don't show unless he is angry, but he keeps his temper in check. He is head over heels for the protagonist, but they are forbidden to date because of their schooling/training, however, they are able to begin seeing each other, and he really opens up in front of her. He has a soft heart. He is extremely tall, dark, and handsome. 6'3". Light green eyes. Muscular, but can move swiftly and quietly. He is very good at understanding mechanics, but is also extremely opinionated. Once he starts something, the only thing that can stop him is protagonist, and only if she is in danger. Again, he needs a different name. I need a full name for him.

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

It'd be helpful if you listed a few other names of minor characters just to get a feel for the kind of style you want. Dystopia is so broad; there's ones with names like Katniss, Peeta, etc., and there's ones where all the names are vaguely Southeast Asian.
Going off of Aila and Cora:
Vulcan (a nod to the mechanics ability)
