Kobold name generator

This generator will generate 10 random names and surnames for kobolds.

Kobolds are short and often ugly sprites from Germanic folklore, but today they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The original kobolds were beings from the spiritual realm who could turn themselves into animals, humans, fires and candles ("You no take candle!"). There are also various types of kobolds, including ones that are basically house servants, as well as mine and water kobolds/spirits.

As far as names go, kobold names tend to be fairly harsh sounding and in some cases quite guttural, but it varies a lot from universe to universe. Surnames also tend to vary a lot, but mostly stick to either none at all or the more typical fantasy surnames like 'Graytongue', 'Mudbasher', and so on. It's these names you'll find in this generator.
I divided the names into male, female and neutral purely based on elements we tend to consider as more feminine, masculine and unisex in our names. Of course this means nothing as far as kobolds go. They're completely fictional and, depending on the story universe, have their own naming conventions and cultural elements to take into account. What those are depends entirely on you or whichever story universe you're going with.
