Started Writing, but one question....

So, I guess I will do the go ahead and ask some advice for the story I am working on, so far only in the first chapter and about 230 words. Not in any rush. but.....I have two main problems I am running into with it.
Problem #1: This is my biggest issue when it comes to writing. I won't say I have a lack of creativity, but for the life of me, I cannot come up with character names. Any advice on how the best way to come up with names?
Problem #2: Character description, not other characters, but my own. There never seems to be right timing to place in a detailed description of my character. I don't want to info dump and I don't want anything to seem forced. Is there any sort of unwritten rule that states a description of the main character needs to be done ASAP? Or can I just slowly put it in over the course of a couple chapters? In case it helps, I am trying to write it from first person.
These are the only two things really holding me up and any advice would be much appreciated. I also do have to say it does help tremendously to deal with my depression currently. I've always been so afraid in the past to attempt to write, but this story I am able to put in a lot of my actual feelings and get stuff out.
