Lamia name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random lamia names based roughly on Greek names.

Lamia was a gorgeous queen of Libya and a mistress of Zeus. Hera, Zeus' wife, became jealous, and either killed or kidnapped Lamia's children. Some accounts say this drove Lamia mad and turned her into the monster we know today, other account say Hera transformed her into the monster.

Lamia became a demon-like creature with the torso of a woman (herself) and the body of a snake below her waist. Throughout time the appearance of Lamia changed a lot depending on different stories, but today lamia tends to refer to people with the body of a snake below the waist. Lamias are also exclusively female in most works of fiction, but male versions do pop up here and there, but often under a different name.

Since Lamia herself is mostly a one of a kind creature her name is also the only name for, well, lamias. Of course, her name was given to her in human form, but since this myth is of Greek origin I used Greek names as a basis for this generator. I focused mostly on darker sounds and on serpent-like sounds, so the 's', 'ph', 'th' and 'sh' sounds will appear more frequently.
