Banuk tribe names - Horizon Zero Dawn

This name generator will give you 10 random names for members of the Banuk tribe part of the Horizon Zero Dawn universe.

The Banuk tribe is a nomadic, hunter tribe who live in the frozen lands north of the Sacred Lands of the Nora tribe. Their harsh conditions are part of their values, as they consider perseverance regardless of challenges to be perhaps one of the biggest values a person can hold. Individual accomplishments are, unsurprisingly, directly tied to their standing and rank within the tribe.
Shamans are the main leaders of the tribe and are supposedly able to detect the presence of machines nearby and are often the ones handling machine parts and thanking their spirits.

Banuk names seem fairly unisex in nature. Names can be both guttural and melodic, and while male names are slightly more guttural, this can be due to a small pool of names rather than as a naming convention. Either way, I've separated the names into male and female to follow potentially small differences, but you could just as easily consider all names to be unisex.
