Etruscan name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Etruscan names and surnames.

The Etruscans were a civilization in the region of what's now known as Tuscany in Italy. While the Etruscan civilization did eventually assimilate into the Roman Republic, they were very distinct before that time. Much of this is due to their unique language, which is still not fully understood today, and which makes understanding their culture fully much more difficult.

Etruscan names are somewhat similar to Roman names however, which isn't too surprising as their culture was influential during the founding of Rome.
Names are gendered, men often have a patronymic (son of), and surnames are common, but only among those higher up in society.
For simplicity's sake I didn't include patronymics, but they can be added in 3 ways:
- Simply use two male names, the second of which will be the father's name.
- Use two names, but add 'clan', meaning 'son of', in between them.
- Add a suffix (-isa, -sa, or -sla) to the end of the father's name.
