Merfolk names - Magic: The Gathering

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

Merfolk are aquatic humanoid beings that somewhat resemble mermaids and mermen from popular folklore. They are more diverse however and often less human looking than their folklore counterparts. Merfolk may also have legs instead of tails, something that was added to make it more logical for merfolk to be found on a battlefield among the other races of the Magic: The Gathering universe.

Merfolk names are melodic, but with larger and darker tones. Female names are more melodic than male names, which is mostly because their names always end in a vowel. Fortunately there were a decent amount of merfolk names to work with in terms of personal names, including surnames, so creating fairly consistent naming conventions that fit the Magic: The Gathering universe was relatively straight forward.
There were also plenty of regular cards to work with, so there's a solid base for those as well and, as a result, the names in this generator should generally fit well among the existing cards names.

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.
