Dwarf names - Dungeons & Dragons

This dwarf name generator will give you 10 names that will generally fit the dwarven races in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

Dwarves were once a proud united race, but years of wars with orcs and goblins, internal conflicts, and other struggles have dispersed them across the lands. These new lands have given them new appearances, though many still share the typical dwarven look, no matter their size, hair or skin color.
Alongside their pride, dwarfs are known to be brave, stubborn, and tenacious. But, perhaps above all, they are known to be suspicious of others. A dwarf will not trust you unless you have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt you're worthy of their trust. Until then a dwarf will keep you at length, always prepared for the worst.
Dwarves also keep a grudge. If you betray their trust, they will get even one way or another regardless of how big or small the betrayal of their trust truly was. This has also fueled their hatred for orcs and goblins, whom they will slay with pleasure. Orcs, goblins and various other races are considered to be a plague which must be purged, before they can grow in numbers and become overwhelming.

Dwarf names are guttural sounding and followed by a clan name. The clan names fall into 2 types: a compound name or a dwarven-sounding name. Examples include Silverstone, Deepdelver, Torevir and Rakankrak.
Because male names always end in a consonant and female names in either a softer tone or a vowel, female names are more melodic sounding by default. But female names have softer tones throughout the rest of their name as well.
