As someone who writes fiction, I always choose a name that fits the character's personality. With that in mind, I did a little research today and discovered the following:

Selena- (Greek) 'Moon'

Nigel- (Irish) 'champion' but also 'black'

Bianca (Italian)- white.

Kara (Russian) is a variant of Cara which is Latain for 'beloved'

Ethan (Hebrew)- 'firm' and 'long lived"

Lucy (Latin) - Light

With these meanings in mind, I think that the characters names are very fitting. Selena was very temperamental and changing like the phases of the moon. Nigel, taught Selena 'black' magic. Bianca balanced Nigel and tried to get Selena to slow down b'c Rome wasn't built in a day. Ethan was ahem....firm and Kara was loved by Ethan, her parents and even Zaltar.
