Ferengi name generator - Star Trek

This generator will generator 10 random names at a time, fit for the Ferengi species of the Star Trek universe.

The Ferengi are a race of short humanoids with reddish brown skin, huge ears, ridges across their nose and forehead and a skull which looks as if it fits tightly around a brain. Their brains are actually four-lobed and cannot be read by telepathic species.
Their huge ears also give them excellent hearing, allowing them to tell what gender and species somebody belongs to, even if the sound if that voice is distorted.

Ferengi society is very male centered and based on greed and profit. Female Ferengi had virtually no rights. They were not allowed to make a profit, they were not allowed to have political views or opinions, let alone any real thoughts, as that was neither expected nor desired of females.
Despite their treatment of their women, the Ferengi males never resorted to slavery or other atrocities when it came to business and making a profit, which they thought made them superior to races which did resort to it.

Not surprisingly, only a few female names are mentioned in canon, but an abundance of male names. Male names are 1-3 syllables long, although 3 is fairly rare. The names often sound a little guttural, although some are quite melodic.

Female names tend to sound more melodic and can be up to 4 syllables long. They do contain guttural parts once in a while, but the melodic aspect usually is more dominant.
