Wakandan names - Marvel Universe

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the Wakandans part of the Marvel Universe.

Wakanda is a hidden nation in North East Africa with technology beyond what the rest of the world is even close to being capable of achieving thanks to Vibranium. Vibranium is a metallic ore with energy manipulation powers originating from a meteorite that crashed on Earth a million years ago. This helped Wakandans develop themselves as a people and a nation, but to protect themselves against the world and the world from itself, Wakanda used Vibranium to hide itself from the world so Vibranium wouldn't fall in the wrong hands.

In the Marvel cinematic universe, Wakandans speak either Igbo or Xhosa depending on the tribe a Wakandan belongs to. Their names don't follow Igbo or Xhosa patterns though, but do have elements of them and other African languages. So you end up with names like T'Challa, Shuri, N'Jobu, Okoye, M'Baku, Zuri and many others. The vast majority have no real life equivalent beyond the African sound influences.
