This is usually subconscious and relies on word sounds.
For example, if you want to associate a character with energy and activity, you’d want to use a firm and short name.
Typically, protagonists are active go-getters– otherwise the story would be pretty boring, right? When you name main characters, you should also consider whether reading the name 25-75 times an hour will annoy readers.
Because of the cold ‘br’ sound, Brian will probably grate readers more than Harry or Gary. Single-syllable names are fine, but not all are created equal.
Readers would also visualize a different character.
The Manhattan Mangler is probably a loose cannon with tattoos, long hair, leather jackets, etc.
However, giving effeminate and insufferable guys names like Percy is annoying and over-done. Finally, names evoke an emotional response from readers.
If your character is a hero, an excellent name will make readers feel he is heroic.
