Human names - Dungeons & Dragons

This name generator will give you 16 human names fit for the various types of humans in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

Just like the real world, humans come in many different shapes, types and sizes. They have countless different ambitions, dreams, and goals. What they lack in strength they make up for in determination, and while their hearts may not always be pure, many will do anything to get what their heart desires. As such, humans could make the perfect or worst party member. They could be a glorious leader or filthy backstabber. They could do what's best for them or what's best for the group.

As far as names go, human names are as diverse as humans themselves. I've covered each human race mentioned in the player handbook (5e), and each is represented by 2 names in the following order: Calashite, Chondathan, Damaran, Illuskan, Mulan, Rashemi, Shou, and Turami. So there are a total of 16 names.
You'll probably notice each of these races has names based on existing cultures, but they're often tweaked enough to be different from the names we use in real life. That doesn't mean you can't simply use real life names of course, it's a fantasy game in which you make up the world after all.

Old version: This name generator used to be simpler, generating only mostly English sounding names. If you prefer this type of name, you can still get them by simply using the buttons labeled '(Old)'.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 16 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 16 new random names.
