Skeleton names - Pathfinder
This name generator will give you 10 random names fit for the skeletons part of the Pathfinder universe.
Skeletons are usually mindless beings created by necromancers used as cannon fodder or minor servants, but those who were powerful in life may find themselves to be powerful as a raised skeleton as well. Powerful enough to break the control of the being who animated you, allowing you to seek a new path in life. Continuing your old path is often very difficult, as skeletons rarely remember their former lives and the memories they do have tend to be hazy at best. Still, to some their memories return over time, but even they have to deal with the trauma of coming back to life as an undead being.
Skeleton names are usually given by their intended master, which can often result in names akin to that of a pet. In other cases their names reflect an intended purpose or they might reflect how little their intended master thinks of them. Skeletons who regain their memories might keep a name they had in life or pick one that suits their needs and desires better. Examples of the names given in the official source books include: Clatterjaw, Creaker, Doorstop, Final Sacrifice, Gochiyo, Lectern, Macefodder, Sixth Lancer, Skulldyr, Xelim. This name generator follows similar patterns, but ignores the personal names. These can be found in the corresponding name generators below though. An elven skeleton would likely have had an elven name, for example.
