This name generator will give you 10 names that will generally fit the half-elves in the Dungeons & Dragons universe, but most names could be used for other types of elves as well.
As the name suggests, half-elves are half elf and half human. They perhaps have the best of both worlds in terms of their physical being, as they share similar physical aesthetics with elves, but have the muscular strength of humans.
They share the love of nature and a sense for magic with the elves, but just like humans they're very ambitious.
Although half-elves are the off-spring of humans and elves, they're seen as a separate race, and are often shunned by both humans and elves. The elves tend to call them half-humans, and humans call them half-elves in order to distinguish them more from their own race. However, half-elves generally have an easier time fitting in with humans who tend to be more open and welcoming in many cases.
Due to the fact half elves have no place to call their own, they've grown a keen sense for diplomacy, so it doesn't come as a surprise that half-elves are at ease with most races and vice versa.
Half-elves are more adventurous than the elves, which is something they've picked up from their human side. This, together with their bravery and charm, makes them great travel and adventure companions. However, there are plenty of half-elves who feel burdened by their heritage, and never feel truly at home no matter the friends that surround them. Many people also expect them to be fun and lovely because many of them are, but those who aren't can succumb under this pressure, which sometimes leads to darker paths.
