How to name

Hey /lit/, was wondering if any of you felt like helping me with something that I have wondered for a long time.
I'm starting to make a little story for my fantasy character, and I'm stuck on choosing a name. I would like it to have meaning behind it, and have no idea how to do that.
For example, Kratos 'supposedly' means power in ancient greek. Any translator I try, I don't get anything like that. (and I obviously do not know anyone who speaks ancient greek to confirm).
I've tried translating 'strong' 'leader' etc in different languages and just messing around with the word to get a cool looking name, but, nothing seems to work.
If theres some special, secret 'root words for names' thing someone could show me, or something, so I could try to get just the right name for each personality of each character, that would be great.

Hey /lit/ when was the last time you left a book unfinished?
Mine was 15 years ago. I can´t help it but when I start something, I have to finish it no matter how shitty it is. It's like I'm afraid of losing something, and I'm afraid of judging a book for it's first half, or 100 pages, or it's cover.
Anyone feeling the same here? Any advice? I feel like I'm wasting time. It doesn't happen very often. I enjoy most things I read, but when it happens it's a royal pain in the ass.

I have like, 5 audible credits that I got for free.
I am looking for some interesting books. I am quite into more paranormal, horror, or weird stories. I am quite fond of gothic era literature more than anything.
I also really like science non-fiction kind of stuff, such as Oliver Sacks.
