Tuareg name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Tuareg names.

The Tuareg people are an ethnic group living primarily in the Sahara desert and surrounding areas. They're nomadic people and part of the Berber language and ethnic family, with a population of roughly 2.5 million.
The Tuareg are Muslims and have been a great part of the spread of Islam in their region thanks to their nomadic roots. As a result many of their names are Muslim as well, though many names have a Tuareg variation instead.

The Tuareg people, like many other Muslim cultures, use a father's name instead of a surname. In the case of sons their first name is followed by 'ag' and then the father's name, and in the case of daughters their first names are followed by 'ult' instead. The more traditional Muslim versions of 'son of' and 'daughter of' may also be used, but I stuck with the Tuareg variant in this generator, largely because I'm unable to tell the difference between Tuareg-variant and traditional Muslim name without these suffixes already present.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
