Elf names - Dungeons & Dragons

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

Elves are one with nature, and will do anything they can to protect it. Their archery and tactical skills are among the best, which they gladly use in combination with their often superior agility and cunning to protect what they love.
Elves are uncomfortable in (civilized) cities. In their eyes, the lack of respect for nature apparent within these cities is unsettling. But they find peace in the knowledge these settlements won't last forever and that one day they will be taken back by nature.

The elves themselves live in forests. Their homes are made through rituals in order to form living wood structures. They only take from nature what they need, and even though they sometimes kill an animal for resources, they make sure they use everything.
Elves are very calm and patient; elves won't let their emotions run out of control. This makes them great fighters as they're always able to assess a situation calmly.
Many elves aren't very fond of other races and only work with them to ensure their own survival, bit friendships can grow from these forced cooperations. Out of all the other races, elves tend to prefer gnomes and firbolgs, but it's not uncommon to see cooperation, forced or otherwise, between individual elves and one of many of the other races.

Elf names are melodic and can be on the longer side. Female names are generally more melodic, but this difference can be minimal in some names. Elves also have a family name. These names are normally in elvish, but they sometimes use translations of their names in common to make communication easier. In this name generator you'll find the first 5 names with such translated compound names, while the last 5 will have the elvish style.
The elvish surnames can vary quite a lot as well, both in length in style. Official examples include Mystralath, Floshem, Caphaxath, Xistrith, Ofandrus and Netyoive.

Because of the elves' long lives, elves before the age of 100 are considered children. These elves also have a child name before being given their adult name when they come of age. These child names are short and unisex.
