Fremen names - Dune

This name generator will give you 10 names which will generally fit the Fremen part of the Dune universe.

Fremens are humans native to the planet Arrakis, a harsh planet with few resources and even less water. Resource management was a key to survival and combat knowledge was integral to both surviving the planet's hostilities and those coming from other planets seeking to conquer them. The harsh conditions of Arrakis made most Fremen look skinny with tan, leathered skin. Their entire eyes were blue due to constant exposure and ingestion of Spice Melange, a natural narcotic found on Arrakis.
Spice Melange, often referred to as "the spice", was able to expand people's consciousness and allowed space pilots to safely guide ships through warp space, but was also used to more explosive chemicals, paper and fibres, and a range of other uses. Spice Melange was incredibly expensive, which is why Arrakis is a target for conquering.

Many Fremen names are Arabic in nature, but given twists to be unique to Dune. Others are simply unique to Dune. Female names are more melodic than male names, and male names can often be on the shorter side. Freman also possess two names, a regular name and an intimate name only used by those closest to them. An example of this is Chani, who's intimate name is Sihaya.
Fremen don't seem to use surnames, but Stilgar Ben Fifrawi does seem to use a patronymic system since Ben usually means "son of" in real life in Hebrew and Arabic. I've excluded this from this name generator as Stilgar's a leader, leading me to believe only higher ranked people use this system, but you could use male names with the Ben suffix to get similar names. For women, Bint is used in real life, so the same could be done here should you wish so.
While Chani does have a surname (Kynes), it comes from her imperial ancestry rather than her Fremen ancestry.
