Tau names - Warhammer 40k

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

The Tau are one of the younger species in the universe, but they are highly technologically advanced.
The Tau are generally a peaceful species and fight for what they call the 'Greater Good', which means all beings should strive for the best well being for the largest amount of beings in the universe.

While the Tau will ask other beings to join their cause peacefully, if they're denied they have no issue conquering this species and adding their planet to the Tau's growing empire.

Tau names are a little tricky. Their names consist of 3 parts. The first part consists of a caste and the rank within that cast.
There's the fire caste (Shas), air caste (Kor), water caste (Por), earth caste (fio) and the ethereal caste (Aun). Each caste has five ranks, 'La, 'Ui, 'Vre, 'El and 'O. The Fire caste also uses 'Saal. The supreme leader of the Tau has rank 'O and is part of the ethereal caste.

The second part of their names shows from which sept they are. I used only existing septs in this generator to make the names a little more authentic.

The third and last part of their name is their personal name. There are no (or very few) differences between male and female names, so I didn't separate the two.

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.
