Valyrian names - Game of Thrones (ASoIaF)

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

Valyrian is a group of languages of which High Valyrian is the original. Variants of High Valyrian are spoken in the Nine Free Cities, but these forms of Valyrian, which are often called Bastard Valyrian or Low Valyrian, have changed so much they can almost be considered separate languages, rather than separate dialects.

Valyrian names are melodic and usually quite long. The vast majority of names tend to have 'ae' in them.
Male names tend to end in either 'ys', 'on', 'or' and 'ar', but there are exceptions.
Female names tend to end in either 'ys' or 'a'. Since the 'ys' ending is part of both male and female names, distinguishing the gender of a name can be a little tricky, but female names tend to sound more melodic than male names.

Valyrian names seem to be used mostly by the Targaryen family, as well as some of the families which have Valyrian blood and some of the folk of the Free Cities wishing to accentuate their heritage.
Most of the people in the Free Cities tend to have different names though, hence why there's a separate name generator for them.

Unfortunately there aren't that many Valyrian surnames available from which I could create new surnames. But I think I managed to do so anyway.
If you wish to stick to an existing family with a Valyrian name, 'Baratheon', 'Celtigar', 'Qoherys', 'Targaryen' and 'Velaryon' are surnames which are definitely of Valyrian descent.
