Differentiating Character Names

Here is an essay about the importance of differentiating character names.  At its most basic, this means don't have multiple names starting with the same letter if you can avoid it.  (Sometimes you can't, if the cast is huge, the characters are firm about what their names are, and/or there are naming customs in play.)
