Gorn names - Star Trek

This generator will generator 10 random names at a time, fit for the Gorn species of the Star Trek universe.

The Gorn are a species of tall, bipedal reptilians. They're stronger than most humanoids, but they lack speed and agility, which, along with being cold blooded, is a weakness you could easily take advantage of. However, Gorns are incredibly strong. In a fight with Captain Kirk, Kirk threw a boulder at his opponent, but the boulder bounced off the Gorn's skin.

Gorn are focused and straight to the point. Other species also tend to view the Gorn as an aggressive species, which is often confirmed by the assertive and determined behavior of Gorns.
A Gorn will take a while to make up his mind though, a Gorn will want to know what the best course of action is. Once this is figured out, nothing will be allowed to get in the way of this goal, which includes ignoring, moving or destroying whatever is in the way, which obviously seems aggressive.

As for names, there are no known females and only 1 male was named in official canon, but many others were named in other works, so I used those names as well.
Gorn names sound like you'd expect from reptilians, many hissing sounds, double s's, many harder sounds and many other sounds which could be compared to the sounds of dinosaurs and large reptiles.

Since female Gorns are larger and stronger than male Gorns, I imagine their names might be stronger sounding as well. But without any real information on their names I decided against creating a separate generator for female names. It's perfectly possible their names might not be gender specific at all, similar to Caitian names. I guess in the end it's up to you if you want to use one of the more feminine sounding names or one of the more masculine sounding names for a female Gorn character.
