Tuvaluan name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Tuvaluan names and surnames.

Tuvalu is a tiny island nation in Polynesia. Across its roughly 26 square kilometers or 10 square miles of land live about 12000 people. Like much of this region, Tuvalu was first inhabited by Polynesians migrating across the central and southern Pacific ocean. It, too, came in contact with Europeans during the 16th and 17th centuries. This newfound relationship started with trade, but turned to colonialism in the 19th century as the British took control of the islands. It wasn't until 1978 that Tuvalu regained its independence. Obviously this is summarizing everything a lot, but all the details would require a far larger description for what is still just a name generator.

With sea levels rising, Tuvalu is at risk of becoming uninhabitable in the relative near future. Tuvalu's highest points are only about 4.5 meters or 15ft above sea level, and increasingly susceptible to storms as sea levels rise. In 2022, an announcement was made that Tuvalu would create a digital replica to preserve its cultural heritage for future generations as a response to this threat.

Tuvalu names are generally very melodic and names can range from a mere 3 letters to incredibly long names like Bikenibeu, Faulufalenga or Terokoraoi. As a Christian nation, Christian names can also be found, but I didn't include them in this name generator as there are separate names generators for this and English names also found on Tuvalu.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a wide range of female names. Even scouring for sports teams and such didn't offer much. If you know of any places where to find such records, do let me know by using the contact form on my site.
