Dwarf names - Lord of the Rings

This name generator will give you 10 random dwarf names fit for the Lord of the Rings universe.
The difference between this generator and the Lord of the Rings Online generators is that these names are a lot more strict in terms of sticking to lore. The LOTR Online generators are less strict because most names will have been taken already by other players, so you'll need more choice to pick from.

The names have been based on the known dwarven names in the Lord of the Rings universe. However, I did not create a separate male and female name generator, since there is only 1 known female dwarf name (Dis), which is hardly enough to create naming rules.
Dis is the only dwarven name that ends in an s though, but there are other dwarven names which are just as short, like Mim, Ori and Oin, so a short name length isn't restricted to female names.

If you want to have a female dwarven name as close to lore as possible, simply pick one that sounds feminine or make it end in an s, but even then it could just as well belong to a male dwarf.
Of course, this isn't all that surprising, since male and female dwarves are almost indistinguishable from each other, even dwarven males don't always notice a dwarf is actually a female dwarf.

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.
