Gelfling names - The Dark Crystal

This name generator will give you 10 random names fit for the Gelflings part of The Dark Crystal universe.

Gelflings are slender, elf-like beings with a variety of powers. For one, they're able to share thoughts, emotions and memories through touch. They were also able to transfer these thoughts into objects. Female Gelflings have a pair of wings strong enough to allow them to glide through the air even with another Gelfling holding onto them. These wings can be folded easily to be hidden under clothing.
Gelflings live in clans at the hands of the Skeksis. At first they lived in relative peace as the Skeksis helped advance their technology, but eventually the Gelflings learned about the true nature of the Skeksis and their darker secrets.

Gelfling names are generally short, but a few longer names exist here and there as well. Male names are more guttural than female names, but female names can be longer than male ones. Clan names seem to always be 2 syllables long and are somewhat guttural, but only 7 clans exist, so this could be a coincidence. Either way, this naming convention is the one you'll find in this generator as well.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
