Getting started with a new Dungeons and Dragons game will involve having to come up with a character. You may have a trusted orc that is now ready for retirement or you might be playing for the first time. Coming up with some cool name ideas for D&D characters can be difficult if you don’t have much fantasy lore to draw on.
This post aims to provide you with a collection of Dungeons & Dragons character name generators for all of the different races available in the game. Since most of the races available are common fantasy character options, the generators here could be used for many different scenarios.
Each of the name generators here is designed to give you names that sound like they belong to the races. Orc names tend to be quite harsh sounding and aren’t often based on the same core principals as human names. Each generator will give you a first and last name to use. You can easily substitute them with other name ideas you have or just mix and match them. Using your own first name and an Orc surname is a cool way to make a character more specific to you while still fitting the theme of the game.
