As far as naming goes, I tend to pick names (usually just single words) from songs for some of my characters names. I'd suggest just finding a name that you like; it doesn't have to be race related! :)
I generally find names that have a tendancy to piss people off....it was hilarious on heroic Lich King right after the name change
Me: Shambling enraged, stuns on DR
Raid leader:BIG HEALS ON DONTHEALME
Me: Out of Cds, shambling at 10%
Raid leader: DONTHEALME HEAL HIM NOW, HEAL DONTHEALME
Shortly after though he took to calling me DHM and the majority of the fun was gone, although the irony in it still draws many comments in pugs etc.
I don't even remember what my priest's initial name was, but when I went from undead to troll when I main switched I took worldboss because of a joke that lasted for all of t12 and most of t11 from a take over of the TB quest area where I led our guild to have the alliance pinned in their base for over 3 hours, and spent the majority of it tanking all the guards in the whole base...it started then with some pugs who joined calling me a Worldboss since thee guards raped most people.....it pisses off the alliance which makes me happy because they really can't resist going after me which gives me free Hks.
