Is there a meaning behind the names Nick Carraway, Tom Buchanan, James Gatz/JayGatsby? Like Daisy's name, since it's also a flower, can mean that she is just a trophy wife or something to look at.

1. Nick Carraway - Carraway, kind of like an "ordinary" seed
2. Gatsby - re-making himself to something from average to great.
3. Meyer Wolfsheim - organized crime, rather "wolfish"
4. Tom Buchanan - conservative, rich, white, dull
5. Daisy - a flower, a trophy to look at with little substance.
