Elf names - Dragon Age

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

The elves in the Dragon Age universe have been divided by war with the humans. To keep things short: Tensions rose between the humans and the elves, who had kept to themselves and didn't help the humans in a time of need. These tensions lead to war, and the humans won. The humans forbade the worship of elven gods. The elves would be offered a truce, as long as they accepted 'The Maker' as their god.
Some elves accepted this offer, these became the City Elves. Others didn't, they refused giving up their dream of their own homeland and the worship of their gods, these became the Dalish Elves.

The City Elves live in 'Alienages', which are essentially city wards assigned to these elves in which they live their lives without any help from the humans, who live in the other part of the cities. While City Elves can move to the human parts, they're usually met with extreme hostility.

The Dalish Elves hope to recover and preserve the treasures, wisdom and knowledge of the fallen elven kingdoms. Their lives are nomadic, and they're proud of their heritage, usually considering themselves to have the purest blood due to being descendants of the old leaders of the Dales.

Depending on which Dragon Age you play, you can choose between either elf. Although the Dalish Elves, like many humans, consider the City Elves to be lesser beings, and there are quite a few differences between the two, the names of both the Dalish and City Elves are pretty much the same, which is to be expected.

Unfortunately there aren't a lot of surnames available, so I didn't add them to this generator. You can't pick your own surname in the games anyway. Depending on which game and which elf you play as, your last name could be 'Surana', 'Tabris' or 'Lavellan', among others.
