Dothraki names - Game of Thrones (ASoIaF)

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the Dothraki part of both the Game of Thrones tv show and the A Song Of Ice And Fire book series.

Creating the Dothraki name generator was a little challenging, mainly because there are very few known Dothraki names. There are only 2 female names. But even with the limited amount of names there were some patterns I could use.

Male names always end in an 'o' and female names always end in an 'i'. The Dothraki language only has 4 vowels (a, e, i and o), although the 'u' does exist in combination with a 'q'.
The known male Dothraki names only had an 'o', an 'a' or the 'ae' combination. I stuck to that as well. The two female Dothraki names only have an 'i', but I decided to use the 'e' and 'a' in their names as well, but there's a higher chance to get an 'i'.

Some Dothraki names are most likely alterations of Dothraki words. For example, Drogo probably comes from Drogat, which means to drive (animals), and Irri probably comes from Irra, which means trout. These names can probably be seen as 'He who rides' or 'She who is like/looks like a trout', since the 'i' and 'o' indicate the gender.

Unfortunately only the minority of the existing Dothraki names can be traced to words, but I did think it was a cool idea, so I went through a Dothraki dictionary, picked out all the words that could be used for a name, and altered them to form Dothraki-style names.

The first 5 names in this generator will be such names, I also included the word and meaning from which I created those names.
But to extend the amount of possible names, and because even many of the existing Dothraki names have no traceable meaning, I also added randomly generated names, some will fit Dothraki better than others of course.
To make things a little more complicated, some of the existing Dothraki names have components which aren't found elsewhere in their language, like the letter c (only found as ch), b and p. All of these are only found in names.
