What should I name my side character?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! Right now I am writing a quest story, but am really stuck for a name for the side-character! He is very courageous and brave, whereas the main character (Xena, female) is quite shy and timid. He helps her on the quest. Any name suggestions? I’m looking for something either cool and casual or maybe unusual and quite fantasy in a way. Thank you!

Out of the last two I like [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] best. [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] goes best with [name_f]Xena[/name_f]? [name_u]Blaise[/name_u] is cute, but doesn’t fit in so well.
