Getting the Names Right

I'm really excited about the new project I've been outlining, but I haven't been able to name the hero yet. He has these contradictory elements that work well together in my head, but they make every single name I come up with seem a little too soft or too edgy or too stereotypical.

Part of me wants to plug in a placeholder name until I can think of something better. A bigger part of me is worried that if I spend enough planning time just calling him "Alphonso" then he's going to start acting like one.
