Tag, you're it

I've been thinking about re-doing some of my fic related tags lately and would appreciate your input. Currently, I tag characters just by their first name (or last, in Giles' case). Pairings seem to change how they're tagged by which characters are being shipped.

I'm always curious about other people's preferences - both as writers and readers. So, poll...
