Naga name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for naga and nagi.

Naga and nagi (female of naga) are beings with either the body of a (humanoid) snake or the lower body of a snake and the upper body of a human. They originate from Indian religions, like Hinduism and Buddhism, but today you can find naga in many works of fiction as well.

As far as names go, there's no real stereotype or trope for naga, but snake-like sounds do seem to appear more often than not in at least some form. In this generator, I've split up the names into 2 parts. The first 5 names are names that follow the snake-like sound patterns, and just general harsher and more guttural tones you'd expect from humanoid snakes. Some names will fit certain types of naga better than others (human heads vs snake heads, etc.), but there's a whole range to pick from.
The last 5 names are names based on the original naga chief names from the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. While the names are randomized, and thus in many cases not strictly Sanskrit, they do convey the overall feeling, and make them fit for fictional beings based on these Sanskrit versions.

I didn't distinguish between male, female or neutral names due to the lack of tropes. It'll be mostly up to you to decide what the difference will be. Should female names end in a vowel? Is it purely based on sound? Is there no difference whatsoever?

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.
