Rigelian names - Star Trek

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

Rigelian is a name which has been given to various species originating from Rigel, which makes this somewhat confusing. But this generator in specific refers to the Jelna.

The Jelna are a humanoid species with flat noses and carvings reaching from the forehead down across the eyes and stopping at the lips.
There are 4 genders among the Jelna, 2 'exosexes' and 2 'endosexes'. The exosexes can be compared to male and female like in many humanoids. The exosexes possessed an extra z chromosome, which made them stronger and more aggressive than the endosexes. So to clarify, there's an endo-male (XY chromosome), endo-female (X), exo-female (XZ) and exo-male (XYZ).

Jelna culture revolved around economic growth and business ventures, which they were very successful at and allowed them to live in luxury. They're very intelligent and industrious, but unlike the Ferengi, they're not ruthless.

Jelna names vary greatly, from short and easy names, to long and more elaborate names. Male and female names differ only slightly. Female names do end in a vowel more often and poses more softer sounds, but the differences can be quite subtle.

Since the endosexes are more gentle and generally weaker than the exosexes, using the more stronger and harder sounding names of both male and female names could work better for the exosexes, while the softer names could work better for the endosexes. This is up to you and your own interpretation of course.
