Selkie name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for selkies.

Selkies are mythological beings found in Faroese, Irish and Scottish folklore. Selkies live as seals when they're in the sea, but once they come on land they shed their skin and become human. They usually come on land to seek companionship and regular humans often find selkies incredibly seductive while they are in their human form. It's said they make great and loving companions, but since a selkie's true home is always the sea they always long for the waters. Should they find the skin they shed they usually can't help but to return to the sea and to any family they may have had before shedding their skin.

Selkies aren't named that often in folklore and in the cases they are named they often just have regular human names. But some works of fiction get a little more creative and I followed their example. The names in this generator aren't real, but they are heavily inspired by the Celtic languages from which these mythological beings originate.
