Cardassian names - Star Trek

This generator will generator 10 random names fit for the Cardassian species of the Star Trek universe.

Cardassians are a species of humanoids known for their ruthlessness and dislike for other species. They have grey skin, ridges on their chests and neck, bumpy ridges across their foreheads, and a ridge shaped like an upside-down water drop above their nose.
The Cardassians believe they, as a species, make no mistakes. But the Setlik III massacre, an event during which Cardassian forces wiped out almost an entire civilian population in what the Cardassians believed to be a military base setup for a future invasion was one mistake at least one of them did eventually confess to. But killing or otherwise harming innocents isn't something Cardassians shy away from regardless of whether a mistake was made or not.

Cardassian names are overall quite short and guttural, sometimes with odd or harder to pronounce parts. There are exceptions to this rule of course, and female names are definitely more melodic than male names, but it's a common theme nonetheless. This isn't necessarily a cultural thing, as Cardassians don't see one sex as better than the other, but they do acknowledge one has bigger strengths in some fields than the other and vice versa.
Surnames follow similar patterns, but they seem far closer to male names.
