Golem name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for golems and similar beings.

Golems are beings created from clay, mud or similar materials, and then animated or brought to life with magic. They're often used as a labor force, guardians or simply as a form of intimidation, but their true uses tend to depend on their creators.
Golems don't often have names in most works of fiction, so instead I focused more on what I imagine golems would name themselves. Since they're large and clunky I used mostly larger sounds. In many cases golems also possess limited intelligence, in part due to the lack of magical powers of their creator, and in part because you don't exactly want a giant clay creature turning against you. Because of this I also included a lot of simpler elements, like shorter names, but this isn't the case for all of them.

The earliest records of golems come from Jewish scriptures. In the Talmud, Adam was a golem. Later, in some tales golems were also said to be activated and deactivated using Hebrew words. In this name generator you'll find Hebrew-inspired names as a result of this (the last 5 results), as well as more fantasy based names (first 5 results).
