Sanskrit or Pali names

I'm writing a short fable for a class, and I'd like to give two of the characters names in Sanskrit or Pali. One of them is clever, so I'd like to name him "clever", and one is very compassionate, so I'd like to name him "compassion." Or something along the same lines. If it matters, both of them are male.

(The names are supposed to be obvious, in case you're wondering.)

I've tried looking up names on my own, but I'm mostly finding names of gods and mythological figures, which I'd like to avoid, and the dictionaries I've found are too confusing for someone who's not familiar with the languages.

Can anyone help?
