I need multiple character names help and I'm hoping someone will be able to help me!  :unsure: 


The premise of the story I'm writing is that in a distant future, physical relationships have diminished due to the Internet to the point where the human race was in danger of extinction. To counteract this, a utopian government have initiated a program where everyone has an assigned soulmate. A screen on your wrist displays the number of days until you meet your soulmate. 


So on with the names! 

I want to keep the story relatable so I'd rather none of the names be too outlandish just because I'm worried it'll make the world of the story seem less like our world, if that makes any sense? So first I need some help with surnames:

Sophie ___ - the mother of the protagonist, who is called James Adachi. Sophie reverted to her maiden name after her husband (who was Japanese) died. She is of English and Irish descent but any surname will work !

Rhett ___ - best friend of our protagonist, a loud jock type. 

Noora ____ - mysterious girl he encounters on his eighteenth birthday. Noora is a Finnish name but any nationality surname is welcomed! If it helps here's the description of her I provided in chapter 1: 

"He hadn’t had a proper look at Noora since he’d gotten into this mess, he realised, not looked beyond the messy red hair and ocean eyes. Close up, her cheeks were flushed, probably from the exercise; her chest rising and falling rapidly suggested the same. She was pretty: not in a conventional way, her hooked nose and wide jaw set her out from the kind of doe eyed Insta girls guys like Rhett tended to date, but in a unique type of way. Her hair was falling down from its ponytail now, and close up he could see a small silver nose piercing. It was shaped like a tiny star, on the right side of her nose, the side he could see. "


First names:

I need names for: 

____ Adachi - James' father, deceased. He was Japanese but I'm fine with an English name as well, since he could have changed it. 


Full names:

I need full names for the following characters:

Jocks 1,2,3,4,5 - just filler names for Rhett's friends really

Girl #1, #2, #3 and boy #1, #2, #3, #4 - James' roommates at college. Any nationality is fine, go crazy! 

Match - the girl James is matched with. 


I'm sorry it's so much but I'd be grateful for any help!
