Names
How do you come up with good names. I have a character atm that I essentially want to call Mrs. plot device (I'm Meta) but I can't just call her Mrs. plot device (I'm not that Meta/bold/a tard) but I can't think of a clever way of obfuscating the meaning. I can't just call her Mrs plot device in latin or something. How do other writers/ you come up with significant names that aren't completely on the nose?

It just works

trying to come up with a name that has a meaning will always be on the nose. just give them a name.

yeah, I tried to think about books i've read where the characters have had clever, significant names, the closest I got was professor lupin from harry potter. WUT LIKE HE'S A WEREWOLF AND HIS NAME MEANS LIKE A WOLF BUT MISSING AN E....DEEEEP

is it just not a done thing, I remember someone saying about Daisy from Gatsby: a daisy, white - pure on the outside (petals) yellow - coward on the inside. Is it just not a thing?
