What was that eye tower? - you can use it's name for a mage
I like to pull my names from mythology.
I re-skinned my basic multiplayer starter team to be all female, and named them after the norns - Skuld, Verdandi, and Urdr
I've got another team that's all names from the legends of Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool) - Fingal, Finnegas, and Oisin
There's lot's of great names to be stolen from mythology, and lots of great trios, if you want them to be related -
The Furies: Alekto, Megaera, and Tisiphone
The Graces: Aglaea, Euphrosyne, and Thalia
The Lords of Xibalba: Hun-Came, Vucub-Came, Ahalpuh, Ahalgana, Chamiabac, Chamiaholom, Ahalmez, Ahaltocob, Xic, and Patan
Wikipedia is great for this sort of thing. Just pick a culture, and find a legend you like, or that fits your concept.
I just completed renaming all my original EWiz-1 etc. characters and here is what I came up with:
Dwarf Priests: Urist McBlesser, Urist McBuffer & Urist McHealer
Dwarf Warriors: Needle, Pin & Thorn
Dwarf Wizards: Urist McConjurer, Urist McMagician & Urist McSorcererer
Elf Priests: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Syrah
Elf Warriors: Boogie-woogie, Jitterbug & Lindy hop
Elf Wizards: Bromine, Chlorine & Fluorine
Human Priests: Marie Cure, Panacea & Remedy
Human Warriors: H. Oster, H. Scholl & H. von Dohnanyi
Human Wizards: Hecate, Nostradamus & Sir Isaac Newton
I do this as well. Depending on the characters.
When I play three elf warriors they are Legolas and the two sons of Elrond.
When I have a mix of the races, that is the fellowship, of course, with Gimli, Legolas and Aragon.
For dwarfs you could take some of the chars of the little hobbit. Also I favor than names like fatso, fatty, ...
"Tension", "Apprehension", and "Dissension" is a rather geeky trio of names that amused me.
Haven't bothered otherwise naming much, but I could see being comically, openly misleading (naming a dwarf wizard "Elf Priest" or "Lizardman Sorceror", say) so it's clear I'm just being absurd.
I do have a farm team that maybe should be named something like "Old McDonald", "Beanstalk Jack", and... oh crap, "Cate O'Leary" would be a ridiculously appropriate name given that my current farming tactic relies on burning all the things.
I got triggered here again somehow,
how about: Burger, Fries and Coke,
Salmonella, E.Coli, and Tetanus,
Eyes, Wide, and Shut
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Knife, Spoon, and Fork,
Oh the list doeth go on
HAHAHA I love that one
Would be good on 3 warriors
I got 2 sets of names - thought them up yesterday.
BVD, DVB, BEEVEEDEE
(for cat figure users) Wiskaz, Kitten, Hidden Claws (like hidden blades but for cats)
@BlackVoidDeath you could be unoriginal and go
If you haven't already. Not fully interesting, but it's there.
For the characters I allow others to see, they are somewhat fantasy related in name. For the dozen characters that only I see, the names are as filthy and suggestive as the game allows.
My vampires are named after vampires (Kurt Straker, Jesse Hooker, Irina von Karlstein), otherwise my characters just have dumb cliched RPG names that fit their appearance and function. All my dwarves are Scottish.
My current ranked party is named after Binding of Isaac tarot card pickups, each according to their function on the team...
Invincible warrior: The Chariot
Damage-buffing priest: The Devil
AoE wizard: The Tower
Since names in general are generally made from words or word elements in obsolete languages, that's what I use. For elves, I refer to a Sindarin word list, humans, Old English and dwarves, Akkadian.

I've got way too much time
That'll be the name of my next control wizard or radiation priest.
My friend named his character my penorz. When we play coop, the battle log was filled with stuff like xxx stabbed my penorz or my penorz took 8 fire damage or my penorz went into a frenzy.
With a few exceptions, and for different reasons, what I do is that I randomize a name and then add some sort of epitapth in front or behind it based on my build (Shortening the name if necessary), I like coming up with them and I'm sure my opponents appreciate it as they can sort of figure out what I'm to up to, though it probably isn't that easy: When my Elf Priest is the "Relic Warden", my Human Wizard is the "Lorekeeper" and my Human Warrior is "The Addled Wisp", there's a lot of guesswork to be done
Currently mine are all taken from the Snorri's Edda.
Random trivia: Gandalf was a dwarf.
My 3 dorf war team is currently named Bop It, Twist It, and Pull It.
Separate names with a comma.
