Coming up with names for fictional characters

Not sure where to put this so I thought advice seemed like the right place.

Most my life I have created various characters and various stories. Most never made it to paper. But the main problem I have always had was coming up with names for most of the characters. So I was wondering if anyone know or have some crazy idea of a way to come up with names for characters. Any help is appreciated

I often like to use surnames from my family tree, names like Maynard, Ricketts, Scowcroft and McKenna that I know a bit about in terms of meaning and origin. I think what would be a good idea is to write down any first or last names you find interesting and build up a bank of these names that you could use to help you name your characters.
