Mongolian name generator

This Mongolian name generator will generate either 10 male or female names depending on your choice.
The Mongolians use a patronymic surname system, which means the father's name is used as the surname. I didn't include surnames in this generator because of some of the double names, which could make identifying the surname a bit tricky.

Mongolian names usually consist of two adjectives or nouns, which in Mongolian grammar form a single word. This combination is supposed to represent qualities of the child.

Due to Mongolian traditions and beliefs, children would sometimes receive negative names. This was usually done to mislead evil spirits who may have taken a previous child's life.
If a son died, the next son could be given a female name to confuse those evil spirits or a new child could be given names such as 'Kh├╝nbish', which means 'not a human being', or 'Enebish' which means 'not this one'.
