A great place to find names for RPGs is the Medieval Names Archive. Not only are there standard old Italian or French ones, there are also ones of Iberian, Byzantine, Persian and Mongolian origin.

For female names, I've often used the early English ones found in this link here.
One can't go wrong with unusual apellations like Britheva, Ydonea or Galiene. :)

I tend to use the lazy way of naming, taking the character's class and using it. It's also a good way for remembering what you want to dual class to if you've a memory like a sieve.

You know: Monn (monk)
Cleran (cleric/ranger)
Thima Fi (thief/mage/fighter)

It works for KotOR too:
Sol Guard (soldier/guardian)
Sen Siass (sentinal/sithassassin)

Seems like a ton of naming sites have already been listed, but this is the one that I use alot; especially if I want my character's name to mean something specific.

I highly recommend this site.
