Dryad name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random dryad names in 3 different, but fairly similar styles.

Dryads are tree nymphs, which originally were the nymphs of oak trees. However, these days dryads refers to all tree nymphs, and not just nymphs, but often all female tree spirits in general.
Nymphs are usually sexual beings who will seduce both men and women, but today dryads can be a whole range of creatures as well, ranging from female botanic guardians of nature, vicious botanic beings, and pretty much anything in between.

The names in this generator are separated into 3 categories, the first 2 names are the Greek sounding names which are used for nymphs in general, and for many dryads in various works of fiction.
The next 4 names are Latin names of either flowers or flower specific elements, these tend to work well for dryads named after whichever tree or flower they are, but still wish to keep the ancient feel of the Greek names.
The last 4 names are flower and tree names, and altered versions of those names, names like 'Rose', 'Rosa', 'Rosea', and so on.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
