this is my kind of question to answer! I love mystery's and such things. That's what I'm gonna be when I'm completely grown up. Okay my ideas are:
main character- Roxanne Rite or maybe Joanne Bender
2 bff- guy names- Luke Winter or Brandon Mathews
girl names- Nicole Andersand or Rebecca Johnson
Swindl. Couple- Max and Amber Robinson
main char. Family- DAD- John or Ralph (whatever her last name is)
MOM- Lauren or Cheyenne (whatever husband's name is)
Sis.'s- Emily, Wendy, Alexus, Tiffany, Brittany (whatever last name family has)
hope it helpsSource(s): I'm good with names and am also writing a csi book of my own

when writing a mystery murder you should include clues for the reader throughout but make sure some of them are misleading to keep the reader guessing right till the last page. that is probably obvious but that is my only advice on the subject.
as far as names go, i used to name all my characters either sally or julia so i know where you are coming from there. i have invested in a baby names book and i just open at a random page and pick one name from that page and stick with it. after all the name is not so important as to spend hours deliberating it.
for surnames, its a simular process, i pick a random page in the phone book and pick the best name on there.
hope this helps!

Well, how OLD are your characters? You know, you should go to the Social Security page, and based on the age of the characters, you could search for popular names at that time. For example, if you characters are 20 this year, they were born in 1989. So, you search for popular girl names in 1989 and go from there. You can do that with last names, too.Source(s): I do that! :)
Hope I could help

common names would be all right, if the story is good. if not, you can name your character Caesar and Cleopatra, nothing would get out of it.
