Griffin name generator

This name generator will generate 10 names, which generally fit all creatures like griffins (or Gryphons or Griffons or whichever spelling you prefer).
There's a choice for male and female names, but this will only affect the first 3 names.

Griffins are mythical creatures with the body of a lion, and the head and wings of an eagle. But throughout the years, especially recently, many different variations have been created. Like the hippogriff, which is a creature with the body of a horse and the head and wings of an eagle.

The names have been divided into 3 different categories. The first 3 names are names of Greek gods, goddesses and other powerful beings. Griffins are often associated with ancient Greece, rightly so, and thus many are named after Greek deities.
The next 4 names are descriptive names, like 'Blacktalon' and 'Dusktail', these names are quite popular in stories in which the Griffin is either a companion or a deadly, legendary foe. Either way, these names can be fun, dark, humorous and perhaps even sad with the right backstory.
The last 3 names are 'normal' names, as well as names submitted by users of this site. These names could range from normal human names to nicknames and even puns.
