    I swear by this website, you can narrow it down by selecting different categories. Hope this will give you some inspiration.

    I know of the website, but I often feel that the lack of meaningful results are because I don't know how to use the site properly. And then I give up due to frustration, as I am one of those people who need the perfect name for a character. :/

    Try selecting Cornish, Welsh and Medieval on the page above. What I did for my characters was picked a top 10 for each one of what names I liked or thought suited them and then modified the spelling or changed them a little bit to make the 'perfect' name for them. I find just trawling the names websites is the easiest way to at least get an idea of what sort of names you could use.

    No problem, there's also a filter at the bottom that you can select names by their meaning. You could try it that way too. For your first character for example, I put 'trust' into meaning and it gave me these lot http://www.behindthename.com/names/meaning/trust. If you follow the hyperlink and replace the word trust with any other word it will give you names with that meaning. Hope this helps :)
