I start by reading books, and not baby name books. I notice which characters names stand out to me, in fiction, history, all kinds of genre's. I really let myself evaluate even the most out there names. If I notice I'm drawn to classics like Katherine or Elizabeth, I'd start searching classic names.

If however you notice you are drawn to more eccentric or unusual names, I'd head down that path. Say them outloud with your last name

Try Nymbler.com. You put in suggestions and it will give you more ideas

Try this quiz to see which group you seem to fit into the most and it will give you a list at the end that fits in your style
Name Nerds! categories

For example, I list as Classic Eccentric

Your personality type is: Classic Eccentric : 35%
Your personality type is: Modern Eccentric. : 20%
Your personality type is: Modern Unusual : 15%
Your personality type is: Classic Unusual : 15%
Your personality type is: Classic Conservative : 10%
Your personality type is: Modern Conservative : 5%
Your personality type is: Classic Outmoded : 0%

It gives me names like this:
Annabel
Adeline
Cordelia
Emeline

Alastair
Caspar
Jasper
Jamison
Finnegan

These have been my fave names for a few years so the results seem to fit
