Elder Scrolls Dragon name generator

This name generator will give you 10 names using the dragon language of the Elder Scrolls, which is also how names in the games are created. Because the names are generated randomly, you may occasionally get a name of an in-game dragon, like Alduin.

Dragon names in the Elder Scrolls universe are (almost) always made up of 3 monosyllabic words, similar to the shouts used by the dragonborn. Each word has a meaning, which, in combination with the other 2, form a name, which may not always be easy to translate into its English form.
This generator combines 3 monosyllabic words to create the names, all of the words are actual dragon words from the Elder Scroll universe, so the names are authentic, although if you'd translate the names, some might be a bit odd. There are thousands of different possible names to choose from, so you're bound to find one you like and one that has a good meaning to it.

Dragon priests have similar names, but their names consist of 1 word, which could be any length. The last 2 names in this generator could be used for both dragon priests and dragons who have an exceptional name (no 3 syllable names in these last 2).
All these names will have 2 syllables, but dragon priests could also have 1 syllable names, as long as it's an actual word.

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.
