Minotaur name generator - Dungeons & Dragons
This name generator will give you 10 names that will generally fit the minotaur species in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. Of course, the names might fit in with other works of fiction as well.
Minotaurs are bull-like humanoids with both a strong urge for violence as well as a strong conscience. These two contradicting aspects mean a minotaur often has to try to balance between the violent urges and temptations, and between the will to do good.
Not all minotaurs manage to resist the temptation of their more violent urges, but those who do possess great self-control are respected, which is reflected in their society and daily lives. Perfecting skills and mastering techniques give minotaurs great pleasure and is perhaps one of the most important parts of resisting other urges.
Labyrinths are also important to minotaurs in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. The labyrinth stands for the journey and struggles a minotaur must go through in life,a and only with enough persistence and strength will a minotaur reach the end.
Minotaur names tend to be fairly guttural sounding, with a few hints of ancient Greek name parts.
During my research I also found that depending on which minotaur you play (or perhaps which D&D version), minotaurs also have surnames, which are based on a minotaurs deeds or merits. Names like 'Ironhide' and 'Orcslayer'. I've included these names in this generator as well.
