Well, Tom clearly has a value system where he rates his own self interest, and specifically his desire to have fun, above the feelings and interests of others. This is most obvious in his interactions with other children - think of the famous picket fence whitewashing scene.

There is also an interesting second interplay between the adult world and the child world at work in the book, whereby values are much more rigidly defined in the adult world and adherred to, whereas the children apply much more fungible values.

How did mark twain come up with the name tom sawyer?

I am not sure how he created the name, but Tom is usually believed to be modeled on Twain's own youth with some character traits of friends of his thrown in.
