Think it might have come from some mods and fan rules, but my group often goes with:
Rogar - Barbarian
Durgin/Killi Thackerson - Dwarf (or Dwarf Trollslayer)
Ladril - Elf
Telor - Wizard
Perrier De Chauncer - Knight (I know this one has come from a quest somewhere. Technically a villain if I recall correctly.)
Of course normal nicknames do then sink in at times- like Roger, Kylie, and Perry.

We also have always used custom names for the heroes.
But I remeber there was example names inside the istruction booklet (Sigmar, Grungi, Ladril and Zoltan). Other names in the Marvel Winter Special (Zull, Strom, Galadrus and Akron).
And if I am not wrong also the Merlin Sticker Album present names for the four heroes (but it's late and I am too tired to go and check this)...

Names in the booklet? I'll have to look again.

I always play as the dwarf, and I go by the name of Gro'in, the lost cousin of O'in and Glo'in from The Hobbit.

He wasn't kidding. Groín is the cousin of Oín and Gloín.
Would be funny if his cousins were named Kok and Bols.

I can find no mention of Gro'in the dwarf.
Kok and Bols are funny too.

I think that Groín joke was so common among me and my nerd friends that I mixed it up with reality.
The cousin in question was of course Loín.

The Fellowship of the Four novel uses the wizard Fortunato, the elf Eildonas, the barbarian Asgrim, and the Dwarf Anvil.

Another set can be found in the Legacy of Sorasil: Angor the Barbarian, Grimbeard the Dwarf, Ravenslock the Wizard, and Stormbow the Elf. The Fellowship of Four was already mentioned, but The Tyrant's Tomb features Asgrim the Barbarian and The Screaming Spectre features Osric the Wizard.

To clarify, Zull, Strom, Galadrus and Akron are found in the EU Rules of Play as you remember, but they are not in the NA Instruction Booklet. You're correct about the Merlin Sticker Album. It features Storn the Barbarian, Grugni the Dwarf, Ladril the Elf, and Chandra the Wizard.

Rogar, Durgin, Ladril, and Telor are all featured in Mentor's fluff story on p.2 of the EU Rules of Play and again on p.4 of the NA Instruction Booklet. Kili Thekkrsson is a Trollslayer from The Halls of Durrag-Dol (a Quest from WD 134), and Pierre Chancier is a Henchman featured in The Eyes of Chaos (a Quest from WD 145.)
