I'm going to play a Monk character soon and I'm stuck a little bit with choosing a proper name for him. The character is calm, considered, has a buddhist type personality. I'm looking for a (probably chinese) name for him what is sounds "cool", but also have a meaning related to his attributes.

Could you give me some examples to choose from or a good source to look at?

The internet is full of name generators. You can use them for inspiration or even take a complete name if you like it. Chinese fantasy name generator.

You could also use a translate site like Google translate to translate words into, for example, Chinese and use that as a base for your name.
