First names (real ones!)

When I read the names of Melissa's kids (Aerys, Teleri and Rhys, iirc), I thought "gorgeous names" and "wasn't Teleri an Elvish race
in LoTR?". Where did you get these names? Do they have any second names?
I don't have a second name, but at least my first name comes from a book: Astrid Lindgren's "Bullerbu(e?)" series. As a child, I didn't
like my name very much (I think no one does), but later I got to be proud that it was a name from a lovely book.
But even though I think Galadriel or Arwen are nice names, I'm not sure that I would call my child that, because a) in Germany, you have to add a name
that indicates the child's gender (how would Arwen Maria sound?), and b) people would never be able to spell / pronounce it .
Any of your thoughts / feelings on names, your own or other ones?
P.S.: When my Mom was pregnant with me and asked my 6-year-old sister whether to call me Julia, my sister asked "what month will she be born?",
and then said "why not Novembia?" - clever, wasn't she?
 my parents have names like Veronika Lisa Hildegard and Werner Peter Klaus - so they're not too keen on second names.
 My boyfriend's called Collin, spelt with a double l on purpose so people will not pronounce it with a long o.
 Juli means July in German (in case you hadn't guessed).
