Githzerai names - Dungeons & Dragons

This name generator will give you 10 names which will generally fit the githzerai of the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

The githzerai are descendants of an ancient race, which was once enslaved by mind flayer overlords. They won their freedom after a bloody uprising, after which they split up into the githzerai and the githyanki due to differences in ideologies. While the latter crave conquering, battle and war, the prior seek the power of the mind and soul through self-reflection and self-mastery.

The githzerai are quite reserved, they're cautious, proud, and, to an extent, quite self-centered. They consider most strangers, especially non-githzerai, to be weak and undisciplined.
A githzerai's status is directly connected to his or her merits. Each githzerai seeks to earn their place in history, and those who achieve greatness will be immortalized, their name will be attached to techniques or cultural elements, while they themselves will be revered ancestors.
While a githzerai's merit is important, he or she will not flaunt her status through possessions. A githzerai will usually only own as much as is needed, just like a githzerai will only speak as much as is needed.

Githzerai male names are usually quite short and fairly guttural sounding. Female names are usually longer than male names, and a little more melodic sounding.
