I agree. When I come up with names, I'll usually look at the names of NPCs of that race to see if there are any common letters or sounds that are used. Orc names, for example, have a lot of hard sounds, while goblin names often use Xs, Ks, and Zs.Because many of the races have real world analogues, you can also check out baby name lists for that culture. Undead usually have Victorian sounding names, while Dwarven names are often Scottish or Irish inspired.Obviously this takes a little more work than just naming your rogue Stabface, but I find the results are a little less eyeroll-inspiring than most names you'll come across.
