Dwarf names - Dragon Age

This name generator will give you 10 names fit for the dwarven race in the Dragon Age universe.

The dwarves in the Dragon Age universe are divided into castes. The caste a dwarf belongs to is inherited by their same-sex parent. So a son inherits his father's caste, and a daughter inherits her mother's caste. But changing castes is possible through marriage or when higher dwarves join lower houses.
However, the Noble caste and the Casteless are the only two castes you can play as, depending on which Dragon Age you play. The Nobles are the most powerful and wealthiest of the dwarves, which includes the Royal House.
The Casteless are the lowest citizens who live in the ghettos, and are generally seen as (descendants of) criminals. They're rejected by the other castes, and all those born as a Casteless are branded with a facial tattoo.

While the dwarves in Dragon Age share a lot with dwarves in other works of fiction, like their building skills and relation to stone and mountains, however, their names tend to be a little more melodic and more Norse-based than the stereotypical Scottish.
In game they also speak with mostly American accents, though this could also be a result of making it far easier to do the huge amounts of voice acting.

The names in this generator are heavily based on the names of the NPCs you find in game, including their last names. Do note that while you can choose your own first name, your last name will always be the same, Aeducan or Cadash for example, depending on which Dragon Age you play.
