Necron names - Warhammer 40k

This name generator will give you 10 random names for the Necron, part of the Warhammer 40k universe.

The Necrons are a species of robotic humanoids. They're one of the oldest species in the universe, but they did not start out as vicious robotic killing machines.
The Necrons were once known as the Necrontyr, a highly advanced race plagued by jealousy for not having the secret of immortality, while 2 other species did, the Old Ones and the C'tan.

The Necrontyr waged a war on the Old Ones as a means to unite the Necrontyr under one common enemy and to find out the secret to immortality.
Later the C'tan offered them immortality in an act of deceit. While posing as allies, the C'tan were in it for personal gain. The C'tan gave the Necrontyr immortality, but it costed them their bodies and most of their souls. Whatever was left was used to power these robotic humanoids now known as the Necrons.

Necron names have a heavy ancient Egyptian feel to them, which is also shown in their culture. Since the Necrons are all robots with no gender, I didn't separate the names into male and female.
Most Necrons don't remember their former lives anyway, as their transfer usually wasn't done with a lot of care. Exceptions to this are the higher Necrontyr, so you may wish to pick a more masculine or feminine sounding name for this.
