Moorish name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Moorish names.

The Moors were inhabitants of various regions in Northern Africa and parts of Southern Europe during the Middle Ages. Their ancestry comes from Arabs and Berbers from North Africa, and as such they were Muslims.
While the term Moors was once used for one group of people, it later shifted for several different groups of people, and at some points changed into a derogatory term as well. In the case of this generator Moors refers to the original group of Moors in the Middle Ages.

Since the Moors were Muslims, their names are as well, but there are some differences between their names and the Muslim names you find today. In some cases it's because of differences in dialect, in some cases simply because these names are very old.
The terms 'ibn' and 'bint' in the surnames mean 'son of' and 'daughter of' respectively.
