Ossetian name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Ossetian names.

Ossetia is a region in Russia around the Greater Caucasus mountains, native to the Ossetians. They have a total world population of just over a million people, over half of whom live in Ossetia. This region was first settled in the 7th century by nomads, and eventually benefited from the Silk Road passing through its territories. Unfortunately their later history wasn't as seemingly peaceful as Mongols, then Tartars invaded this region repeatedly.
Eventually, in the 18th century, Ossetia came under control of Russia and remained under it throughout Russia's history to this day, for better and worse.

Ossetian names are heavily influenced by Russian culture, including the patronymic surname system common for many (ex-)Russian territories. There are some minor differences in spelling in names shared among both cultures though, and names seem less complex than the Russian system of today as well.
