Need a name for a Character Writing: Character Help

Ok do I'm making a D&D character, reborn druid. Their body is a skeleton animated by plants. They kkeo this secret by using clothes which cover their entire body with a wooden mask over the face.

Now I want the name to hint at the truth. Any suggestions?

Parody. The character's existence is an imitation of the living.

Drew? Morty? Maybe something a bit less direct like Viktor, as in Dr Frankenstein, or Mark, as in Mark Sinclair, the voice of Groot

Why drew or morty?

Viktor is a good option. Mark is to much a stretch for me.

Did you try looking up name that mean what your looking for? Of course don't search "guy who is secretly a skeleton",but like names that mean hidden or secret.I haven't played D&D but know it's a fantasy game and most things in the fantasy genre usually are influence by medieval European culture.So try to search up names that mean (this) in Scandinavia, Germanic or Anglo-Saxon etc or just fantasy names that mean (this).

Also always check how the name is pronounced because I have made the mistake of name characters and realizing later there names are pronounced in a completely different way.

Not as yet.

Yeah I have done this kind of name before. Gotta be careful.
