Sphinx names - Magic: The Gathering

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

Sphinxes are huge creatures with lion-like bodies, huge, feathery wings and human faces, similar to their folklore counterparts. Sphinxes are known for their great intelligence, their cunning and for the way they speak in riddles. They're usually revered and seen as leaders and many sphinxes are aligned with blue mana, but there are exceptions to all of this of course.

Sphinx names tend to have some Egyptian influences, though this is entirely based on the small handful of names there were available. But these sometimes subtle influences did allow me to add more variety without having to take too many artistic liberties.
As far as generic card names go there was plenty to work with, both in terms of lore and in terms of available cards, so there's plenty to pick from in this generator as well.
