It's interesting to read Joseph Campbell on the subject, plus study as many different indigenous folktales and myths as possible (not just the obvious ones, but African, Aboriginal, Native American and Middle-Eastern as well).

Some Greek names were better. Zeus, Athena, Poseiden.

Some Roman names are better. Mars, Venus, Diana, Mercury, Vulcan
