Half-orc name generator - Dungeons & Dragons

This half-orc name generator will give you 10 names that will generally fit half-orcs in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.
All of the names are orcish-themed, but half-orcs can also use human names, there's a link to that generator and all the other D&D generators at the bottom of this page.

As their name suggests, half-orcs are a species that resemble orcs and humans. Their exact origin is unknown or at least obscured by various legends.
Some say a hobgoblin empire created the half-orcs while others might say a tribe of humans chose to breed with orcs to strengthen their lineage.

Due to the large differences between orcs, half-orcs and humans, half-orcs are generally without a real home. However, they can fit in with both and the difference between them and the other races could often be use to their advantage.

Orcs are stronger, more brutal and savage than half-orcs, but half-orcs are more intelligent and resourceful.
Humans are weaker than half-orcs, which usually means half-orcs do the more labor intensive jobs in their human communities, but due to their difference appearance and their general personality, humans tend to look at the half-orcs with a fair bit of prejudice.

Because the half-orcs never truly fit in, many choose a life of adventure, often with or in search of a party of their equals, whatever their kind may be.
