Human name generator - Lord of the Rings

This Human name generator will give you 5 random names fit for the Lord of the Rings universe.
The difference between this generator and the Lord of the Rings Online generators is that these names are a lot more strict in terms of sticking to lore. The LOTR Online generators are less strict because most names will be taken already by other players, so you'll need more choice to pick from. But since human names are so versatile, both in LOTR and in real life, the difference between the two human name generators is fairly small.

There are 4 groups of humans in LOTR, each with their own types of names, although it's not out of the realm of possibilities for some members of each group to mingle, marry and have kids with names from one party while living among the other.

The 4 groups are the Bree-Landers, the Dale-Folk, the Gondorians and the Rohirrim. Of these 4, only 3 are covered in this generator. The Gondorians have Sindarin names and Sindarin-influenced names, so the Elvish name generator will cover most of their names. However, Gondorian names don't always have to mean something in Sindarin, so you could also use the Lord of the Rings Online Elf name generator for them.

Bree-Lander names are English and generally very short, names like "Nat", "Bill", "Kate", "Clare" and so on. The first 4 names in this generator are such names.
Dale-Folk names and the Rohirrim names are Anglo-Saxon in nature. The Dale-Folk have some Norse influences mixed in as well. The last six names in this generator are Anglo-Saxon in nature. Note that Rohirrim names tend to be longer compared to those of the Dale-Folk.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
