Gnoll names - Dungeons & Dragons

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

Gnolls are vicious, hyena-like creatures with an insatiable hunger for killing other creatures. The weaker the creature the better, as strong creatures pose a threat, which is often dealt with at a later time. They will attack any creature stronger than them only if they can outnumber it, and thus turn the tides into their favor, or when they're commanded to. They have no honor of any form, killing is their only desire.

Gnolls work together in war bands, but their tactics tend to come down to killing anything in sight, going after those that flee, and killing them once they've been captured. They can be stealthy, and they possess some skill with other weapons, like bows, but, as you may have guessed already, they simply use this to kill those that avoided being killed by their main onslaught.

Gnolls don't often have names, their language is primitive, and they have little use for names anyway. But some leaders do have names, which are always 2 syllables long, and always start with a vowel. They're also fairly rough sounding, but there are some more softer tones as well.
Gnoll war bands are simple and descriptive. Names like Forsaken Mongrels, Dread Defilers, and so on.
