Skinwalker names - Pathfinder

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

Skinwalkers are people with a lycanthrope ancestor somewhere in their lineage. This ancestry can lie dormant for many generations before being activated at seemingly random. Those who know of their lineage may try to push the odds in their favor by choosing somebody either with or without a similar lineage depending on whether they'd want to spare or gift their child the same fate, but it will always be a game of odds.
Either way, skinwalkers possess the ability to shapeshift into a different, animalistic form granting them elongated snouts, longer claws or other physiological forms linked to their ancestry. For some this will be based on werewolves or werebears, for others on wereraptors or bats, or any of the other strains. Which could even be that of a wereshark.

Skinwalker names tend to reflect those of whichever culture they were born in and before they have fully manifested their inherited nature. But some may pick an epithet or nickname of sorts. Example given in the sourcebook include: Bearmaw, Wolftamer, Fangblood, and Owlmarked. You'll find similar names in this generator based only on the available subraces: werebat, werebear, wereboar, werecrocodile, wereraptor (owls, eagles, etc.), wererat, wereshark, weretiger, and werewolf.
