I'm writing a story set in the future where a monarch is the head of power and lands have been redistributed into Kingdoms. The Kingdom in which the story is set is being overthrown and so are its rulers. I have a couple names I'd like to run past you guys and then I need a few more!

Queen: Ember-She is named this because her Kingdom and power are fading and dying like embers in a fire.

Commoner: Lina-She is the savior of the Kingdom and also the true Princess of the land, I thought the name was fitting because Lina means light.

Commoner: Bae-Lina's best friend, who may end up becoming something more. I just really like this name for a boy and I hadn't gotten the chance to use it yet. If you think of a different name that you think I'll love more, suggest it!

So now I need some help. I need a name for another princess who has been taken hostage in exchange for the Kingdom, so she needs a name that means weak or captive. I also need a name for two men, both are trying to take over the Kingdom, so just some bad guy sounding names will do for them unless you think of something symbolic! Your help is greatly appreciated! Let me know what suggestions you have, thoughts on what I already have character name wise and plot wise. Thanks!

I think Bae works for the guy but I prefer the spelling Bay for a boy.
