Orc name generator

This Orc name generator will give you 10 names that fit the Orc race of the Elder Scrolls games.
The Orcs are like pretty much every other fantasy orc race; humanoid, dark, greenish beastmen.

All these names are generated with rules similar to how the names in the Elder Scroll games seem to be created, so most of the generator names will fit, some might even be the same as in-game names.

Both the male and female names share the same last names. In the Elder Scrolls, orc last names first start with either 'Gro-' for males and 'Gra-' for females.

The last names indicate the stronghold to which the orcs belong or belonged. They only use a surname when they leave their stronghold or when they present themselves to outsiders.
Orcs may also use the father's name as a surname if they're male or the mother's name if they're female. If the same-gender parent's name is unknown, the name of the other parent can be taken as well. The names are still preceded by either 'Gro-' or 'Gra-'.

This generator only uses stronghold surnames, but you can easily replace that part with any of the names found in this generator if you prefer the other style.

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.
