What's a powerful name for a character?

grandfather, they're a dictator (calls them self emperor) who great great grandfather took over dystopian America. Now, his entire government is corrupt with thousands starving, oblivious of how life could really be. He shields them from their own history and will do anything to keep the government living a more lavish lifestyle than it's people. Any good first and last name suggestions?

President Snow came to mind when I read your description. I suggest an old name

I like "President Snow". It's catchy and one you wouldn't think would work, but it does.
Report as
Thank you! Haha, they're rather similar only this one isn't quite so... chaotic isn't the word. Anyways, I love the last name Stone and I'd probably use it, but it's already the name of a hero in another book I'm writing. If you ever here about the character Justin Stone or the Six, that would be my writing :)
Report as
Where would your writing be? Justin Stone sounds cool.
Report as
Well, currently, my writing with Justin it it (the six and all I work on now) is on my computer and I don't feel like sticking it on the internet (I'm paranoid of people coming to take the story line and publish it for themselves.) Oh, and thank you! anyways, the basic gist of the story is an orphan, dropped off at an orphanage days after birth, discovers that his best friends he believed to be dead are alive living in a world of magic, mythical creatures, and mutants battling another high tech society so they won't wipe out the human race
Report as
I totally understand the paranoia; same boat.

So... sci-fi Harry Potter? Sounds pretty cool.
Report as
haha, along the lines of that, and thank you :)

Hi, Lydrv. I'm not very good at this, but here's a shot:

First: Andreas, Giovanni, Octavio, Rigoberto, Sebastian

Last: Angelucci, Botticelli, De Luca, Esposito, Giodano,

Report as
Really? Oh, my gosh!!! I was trying to come up with something that sounded like "godfather names" so that's what I was trying to look up. Thank you, Lydrv!
Report as
You're welcome! Haha, I never realized how much I liked the mobster sort of names! You just saved me a lot of time in the future
Report as
Thank you. I guess I'm just a mobster kind gal! LOL
I like the name you picked out. I'm just gonna leave the names I've got and maybe you can use one of them someday. I wish you the VERY best on your book, Lydrv!

I agree with Terilynn210. Marcus is a pretty good name for that.
