Valkyrie name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for Valkyries.
The Valkyrie are battle-maidens who choose who lives and who dies in battle. Among those who die, half of them are chosen by the Valkyrie to join the god Odin in Valhalla, while the others will join the goddess Freyja in Fólkvangr.

Both Fólkvangr and Valhalla seem to be fairly the same, though not much is known about Fólkvangr, especialy compared to Valhalla.

The Valkyrie are part of the Norse mythology and thus their names are Norse. However, because the Norse alphabet is different from the English (Latin) alphabet and because Valkyries have been used in so many different works of fiction, the names in this generator only sound Norse, in some cases just a little.

The names have been heavily inspired by the few named Valkyrie of the Norse mythologies and it's possible the generator will generate a name of an actual Valkyrie, though there are thousands of different name combinations.
However, those who speak a Norse language will probably be able to tell where many of the names have been changed or where they're incorrect in terms of fitting in with Norse languages, but this is done in many works of fiction and it makes it a lot easier for those of us who don't speak a Norse language.
