Kryptonian names - DC Universe

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the Kryptonian race part of the DC Comics Universe.

Kryptonians are humanoid beings from the planet Krypton. In most iterations Kryptonians gain powers from a yellow star by absorbing their solar energy. This gives them abilities considered to be super human to people on Earth and it's thanks to our sun Superman is able to be as powerful on Earth as he is. The exact powers and weaknesses differ from storyline to storyline, but super speed, super strength, x-ray vision and heat vision are some examples of Kryptonian powers.

Kryptonian names follow a patronymic and family lineage system, but this again varies from storyline to storyline. Generally speaking, men have a short name with a suffix indicating their lineage. Kal-El is such a name. "El" indicates Kal is of house El, which translated to "of the star".
Women usually have a short melodic name followed by the name of either their father or husband. Lara Lor-Van and Alura Zor-El are two examples of this.
