Daemon names - His Dark Materials

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the daemons part of the His Dark Materials story universe.

Daemons are physical manifestations of a human's soul. They usually manifest in the form of an animal, but this isn't always the case. During a human's childhood, their daemon can shift into many different forms before finally settling into a final form when they reach adulthood. This final form is a reflection of the human's personality.
Since daemons are humans are one entity, they are able to communicate both verbally and non-verbally, they share dreams, and being separated for too long and too great a distance is painful.

Daemon names generally come in 2 forms: regular human names (Ben, Anneke, Nicholas, and so on), and more fantastical names like Pantalaimon, Grizel, Sophonax and Telemachus. This name generator covers both. The first 4 names are regular human names (usually either English or Dutch as those are the most common in the lore), and the last 6 are randomized, fantastical names.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
