Mind flayer name generator - Dungeons & Dragons

This name generator will give you 10 names which will generally fit the mind flayers of the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

Mind flayers, also called illithids, are powerful humanoids with tentacled faces who possess horrifying mental powers with which they dominate or destroy others.
A lost encounter with a mind flayer tends to end in one of two ways: The mind flayer will either eat your brain or turn you into a mindless, obedient zombie.

However, the 'gifts' of the mind flayers are also a curse. When mind flayers eat the brains of their victims, which they need for sustenance, they also acquire part of their memories and knowledge, which in turn forms the overall society of those mind flayers. Thus the mind flayers require intelligent creatures or risk becoming nothing but mindless creatures themselves. This brings plenty of risks of course, and has resulted in the near extinction of their race in many regions.

Mind flayer names are diverse, but overall they tend to have both melodic and harsh tones as part of their names. On top of this their names can also vary in length as well, ranging from single syllable names to four syllable names.
Names often tend to start more melodic, and end in harsher tones, but this isn't a strict naming convention.
