Goblin names - Pathfinder

This name generator will give you 10 random names fit for the goblins part of the Pathfinder universe.

Goblins are vile and vicious creatures despised by virtually all other races, though some see these cowardly and weak creatures as suitable cannon fodder or other disposable soldiers. Their large appetites and bad memories tend to cause them a lot of trouble as they will gladly go to war of some sorts in order to fill their bellies with food, preferably meat, and satiate their destructive tendencies.
Since goblins lack any decent structure as a society they tend to live as small ever changing tribes in remote and undesirable places, especially since all other races tend to try to get rid of them as best they can. It's often the strongest goblin that becomes the leader, but if this leader isn't smart enough to get rid of any up and coming youngsters who might try to take this leadership role that leadership won't last long.

Goblin names are varied in length, but mot names share the same guttural and sharper elements that often make the longer names harder to pronounce. The shorter names tend to be quite simple and often seem more suitable for these beings that are supposed to be unintelligent.
Female names often lack the sharper elements found in male names and instead have softer sounds, but the guttural elements are found in both. There were no surnames to work with for this generator, but in the case of unintelligent goblins it feels very suitable not to have a surname.
Having said that, chieftains do have names which resemble fantasy-style surnames. Names like 'Gutchewer' and 'Heartstomper'. Of course, goblin chieftain names are quite crude, but that's the be expected.
