Cyclopean names - The Dark Eye

This name generator will give you 10 names fit for the Cyclopeans of The Dark Eye universe.

The Cyclops Islands are a group of volcanic islands who get their name from the peaceful cyclopes who roam these lands. These cyclopes are the servants of Ingerimm, the god of fire, earthquakes and blacksmithing.
Besides the dangers the volcanoes can hold, the ocean currents around the islands are turbulent and dangerous as well. Still, the Cyclopean Sea between the islands is busy despite these dangers and usually carry human travelers, traders and other folk. Other races are rarely seen.

Cyclopean names are heavily influenced by ancient Greek names, but are still distinct enough to stand out from real life. Like their real counterparts, male names often end in -os, -ios and -eos, while female names often end in a vowel. Female names are more melodic because of this, but the rest of their names tend to lean more toward relatively softer tones too. All names, including surnames, can range from a shorter 2 syllables to 4-5 syllables in length.
