Faroese name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Faroese names and surnames.

The Faroese people are an ethnic group living on the Faroe Islands, which is a self-governing country part of the Danish realm and has a population of roughly 50,000 people. They have their own language, which is closely related to Icelandic and their ancestry is primarily Norse and Gaelic.

As far as Faroese names go their Norse ancestry shines through the most. They used to have the same -son and -dottir system for their surnames, but this is no longer the way surnames are created, they are now simply handed down like in most other countries. There are still plenty of -son and -dottir names though, just like there are still plenty of names in English like Johnson and Michaelson.
