Gnoll name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random names for gnolls and similar creatures.

Gnolls are creatures first used in Dungeons & Dragons, but have since been used in many other games and works of fiction as well. They resemble humanoid hyenas or other canines, and are more often than not fairly crude and barbaric in nature. In games they tend to pose threats for lower level characters, but are usually too weak to pose any threat at higher levels.

Gnoll names tend to be as crude as the gnolls themselves, but there's usually at least a little variation between each work of fiction. The names do tend to be more guttural sounding in general, often with elements that might resemble growls and other noises a hyena or other dog-like creature might make. I focused more on these kinds of names for this generator, but there are elements of others too.
Surnames are in the typical fantasy style you find in most games and works of fiction, names like 'Blacktooth', 'Bloodsnout' and 'Mudeye'.
The male, female and neutral names are more based on what's often considered to be either one of those in English and similar languages, but since gnolls generally don't speak languages you could pretty much use any name for any kind of gnoll.
