Cephalid names - Magic: The Gathering

This name generator will give you 10 random cephalid names fit for the Magic: The Gathering universe.

Cephalids are octopus-like creatures with flexible bodies and tentacles, but, unlike real octopuses, cephalids have a skeleton, which gives them the somewhat anthropomorphic look of a half octopus half humanoid being.
Cephalids are greedy creatures who wish for nothing more than power. They are ruled by an emperor, but all those who are higher up are often targets of one scheme or another, targets of other cephalids who seek to take their power.

There are only 2 named individuals among the Cephalid cards, Aboshan and Llawan, the emperor and empress. I still used these two names as the basis for names in this generator despite it being far from ideal, which means I've taken a lot of artistic liberties to expand upon these names. I also didn't separate the names into male or female since the two names are very similar and since two names are nowhere near enough to distinguish what might be considered typical male and female names for this race.
There were a fair amount of regular cards to work with though, so if you're just after those there's plenty to pick from that has been based on a decent amount of real cards.

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.
