This Maiar name generator will give you 10 random names fit for the Lord of the Rings universe.
The Maiar are spirits who descended to Arda (the world in LOTR), they did so to help the Valar (powerful spiritual beings who first shaped Arda). Each Maiar associated itself with one Valar.
Eventually some Maiar would be corrupted by Melkor, which turned them into Balrogs, like the one Gandalf fought ("You shall not pass!").
Maiar have no fixed form, instead they can choose a form which best suits their needs. All Maiar are immortal. If a Maiar is killed, its spirit will linger in the world with diminished powers until they can either take physical form once more or until their Valar restores their physical form.
Maiar names tend to be melodic, although some Maiar are known by other names to the inhabitants of Middle-Earth, for example, Curumo is known as Saruman, Aiwendil is known as Radagast and Olórin was known as Mithrandir by the elves and as Gandalf by the Men of the West.
There aren't that many named Maiar, despite them being numerous at one point. I took the known names and used them as a basis for the generated names in this generator.
Some known Maiar had a female form and others had a male form, there wasn't a huge difference between their names though, and they have no real fixed form as mentioned before, but I decided to have a generator for male and female Maiar names anyway, if only for convenience.
