I am writing a story and need help with character names?

I am writing a story and I cannot think of names for the two main characters. I have got names that I like but don't think they would match well. any other ideas?

1. Molly (name idea)

redhead that is daring and brave, but is loyal and patient as well.

2. Grace (name idea)

girl with black hair that is cunning, resourceful, intelligent, and witty.

name ideas besides Molly and Grace?

    1. don't use Scarlett for the first one because that has been done so much.

    Think about what the parents were thinking when they were born. No-one is names after their future attributes. What race are the children? That plays a huge factor. Also are they well educated, traditional?

    If so then think about that. If you want your character name to be important and well thought out, then I suggest http://nameberry.com/list/96/Girl-Names-That-Mean-... - clues in the title

    A few names from that is Audrey, Marcella or Rainey

    For the second one, I suggest http://www.meaning-of-names.com/search/index.asp?n...

    A few names from that are Alvie and Cassidy.

    Look up on the internet for more ideas!

    I like Grace a lot. It's classic. I don't really like Molly though...

    What about Alice? Or something cool like Blue? I like Olive, Lena, Teagan, and Violet with Grace too :)

    I think Molly should be Grace. And Grace should be Olive - short for Olivia.

    For (Molly) I would recommend Rebecca (becca or Becky) - meaning outgoing and adventurous

    For (Grace) I would recommend Cassidy - it means clever and intelligent
