Imp name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for imps and similar smaller demons.

Imps are often unattractive looking creatures with a mischievous nature. Originally they were very similar to fairies, and not associated with evil at all. But as time went on, fairies become more and more associated with good, while imps became more and more associated with evil. Imps were seen as lesser goblins, which were also seen as demons, but today goblins are often seen as non-demonic whereas imps generally are.
Imps would seek out human companionship through tricks and playful behavior, as imps were generally quite lonely, but this behavior often accomplished the opposite. Witches and warlocks did see value in these little demons though, which is probably why the association with evil grew and grew.

Imp names tend to be lighter and more playful sounding than names of larger demons, but it differs a lot from work of fiction to work of fiction. There's a wide range of names in this generator, but most names do follow the similar lighter and harsher tones, rather than the darker and more powerful sounding tones you'd find in stronger demons. Most names will also follow the more otherworldly hard to pronounce kind of feel you often find among demon names in many works of fiction.
