Orc name generator

This name generator will give you 10 names fit for the orc race of the Elder Scrolls games.
These orcs are like pretty much every other fantasy orc race: humanoid, dark, greenish beastmen.

Orc names are harsh sounding and, at times, hard to pronounce. There isn't a huge amount of difference between male and female names either. Their surnames, on the other hand, fall into two different categories: stronghold and lineage names.
Stronghold surnames indicate to which the orc belongs or belonged. A lineage name indicate an orc's father if they're male or mother if they're female. If the parent normally used for such a surname isn't known, the other may be used.
Lineage names are also preceded by either 'Gro-' for males or 'Gra-' for females, kind of like a "son of" or "daughter of" prefix.

This generator only uses stronghold surnames, but you can obviously pick any male or female name from the results and add the corresponding prefix to it to use the lineage method.

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.
