Terris names - Mistborn

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the terris part of Brandon Sanderson's cosmere universes.

Terris were humans inhabiting the state of Scadrial before the ascension of the Lord Ruler. They were Feruchemists, meaning they had magical powers, which were of interest to the Lord Ruler. Terris women were thus used for breeding programs to make sure their magical powers didn't live on. Terris men were also castrated, and then served as stewards for the nobility.

Terris names are a mixture of harsh and soft tones, with the soft tones often coming from consonant pairs. Many of these pairs include a 'w'. Examples include Handerwym, Idashwy, Kwashim and Kwaan. Others include Harathdal. Tellingdwar, Vwafendel and Telsin. Female names aren't that different from male names, though do feature the 'y' more often.

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.
