Dragonriders of Pern name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names fit for dragons and dragonriders of the Dragonriders of Pern universe.

Dragonriders of Pern is a very popular book series with 22 novels and several short stories, as well as various game adaptations. The story is about life on Pern and the constant threat of 'Thread', which is a spore that rains down from the skies whenever the red star orbits passed the planet. These spores are capable of consuming organic material, including animals and humans, and thus pose an incredibly dangerous threat.
The people of Pern use dragons whom they have a telepathic bond with to destroy these spores and minimize the damage they can do.

There are a few naming rules in this universe and they're mostly based on the way dragons talk. They lisp due to their forked tongue and this is why all dragon names end in 'th'. This lisp also lies at the root of the tradition that shortens male names, as dragons would slur their names to make them easier to pronounce. For example, "Famanoran" became "F'nor".
I didn't include the shortening of names in this generator, mostly because names can be shortened in various ways so I decided to leave it up to you to pick whichever short version you like best.

Dragon names seem to be mostly unisex, but I did separate the names into and female names. The first 5 dragon names are based purely on male names and the last 5 names purely on female names. But you could easily use the names for either sex.
