Kenku names - Dungeons & Dragons

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

Kenku are anthropomorphic crows or ravens, similar to the tengu of Japanese folklore. The kenku are unable to fly due to a terrible curse, and spend much of their time trying to regain their lost gift. On top of that they're also incapable of normal speech, but instead mimic the sounds of other creatures and the sounds of life in general.

Kenku have no wings anymore, instead they have arms and hands like most humanoids. Their ability to mimic sounds also translates to an ability to mimic objects through crafting. Unfortunately kenku lack an imagination to create original works, but being able to copy objects with incredible precision is a valuable skill in and of itself.

Kenku are often named by others, and are usually named after the sounds they make, which means they tend to fall into one of three categories. Battle sounds for the fighter types, like 'Cleaver', 'Smasher', and 'Chomper', animal noises for the criminal types who seek to communicate without suspicion, like 'Snaker', 'Squirrel Chitter', and 'Owl Hoot', and profession sounds for the more artisan inclined types, like 'Saw Wobble', 'Clanker', and 'Potion Swirl'.
