Au Ra names - Final Fantasy

This Au Ra name generator will give you 10 names that fit the Au Ra race of the Final Fantasy universe.

The Au Ra are a race of humanoids with dragon features, most noticeably curved horns and patterns of scales on their otherwise smooth skin. They're supposedly a distant offspring of dragons, but this is disputed by some scholars due to the big differences between the Au Ra and dragons.

There's an Auri myth which tells of a Dawn Father and Dusk Mother from which all Au Ra are descended, while both Au Ra share this mythology this is also where their differences stem from.
The Raen believe their veins run thick with the blood of the Dawn Father, which is why they have white scales and an iron will. On the other hand you have the Xaela, they believe their veins run thick with the blood of the Dusk Mother, which is why they have black scales and a fiery will.
Their differences don't end there. The Raen have settled down and live a peaceful life, while the Xaela live tribal lives full of conflict and war.

Raen names are taken from mostly Edo era Japan, but in the Final Fantasy universe male names tend to relate more to strong, agile, and sometimes uncontrollable elements of nature. Female names relate more to plants, birds, beauty, weather, and seasons. This makes it very difficult for any non-Japanese speaker to create fitting names, unfortunately I am one of those. However, this generator does generate Edo era names, so the names are still very close.
Since the Raen use surnames related to either battle and power (official surnames of the warrior class), or their professions (unofficial surnames), I only used surnames used in the game. Also note that there are 2 ways to write the name order, which is 'first name + surname' or 'surname + no + firstname'. The prior is used when Au Ra deal with non Au Ra, and is also the one I used in this generator.

Xaela names are taken from Mongolia, mostly from the 15th century, but there's a lot of leeway here if you need it. This makes finding and picking a name for a Xaela character much easier.
They also use tribe names instead of surnames, this generator contains the 51 tribe names that exist in game. There are a few more names, and new ones could pop up, but this will usually be the result of either a new tribe forming or an old one either being merged or killed by another.

The first 5 names in this generator are Raen names, the last 5 are Xaela names.
