Reverend Mother names - Dune

This name generator will give you 10 names which will generally fit the Reverend Mothers and other Bene Gesserit part of the Dune universe.

Reverend Mother are those members of the Bene Gesserit who have completed enough training to reach this advanced level, they are also the ones responsible for choosing the Reverend Mother Superior, the leader of the Bene Gesserit. The Bene Gesserit are a somewhat religious order of woman in various roles across the universe, such roles often include spies, scientists and nuns. They use genetic engineering, political influence as well as religious (social) engineering to achieve their ultimate goal of furthering the human race with the coming of their chosen one: the Kwisatz Haderach. This was supposed to happen through a selective breeding program cumulating in the birth of a daughter to Leto Atreides I, who then in turn would give birth to the Kwisatz Haderach. However, Jessica Atreides instead gave birth to Paul Atreides, throwing everything for a loop and setting off the main story within the first Dune books.

Reverend Mothers have three names: the first is a masculine Roman-Latin surname, the second a (usually older) English name, then lastly an Arabic-inspired surname. These naming conventions change throughout the series as the story is set over tens of thousands of years, so it's only natural naming conventions change. The changes are usually no more than the dropping of one or more of these names, usually starting with the Roman-Latin names.
