Xana name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random names for xanas and similar beings.

Xanas are female, spiritual beings from Asturian mythology similar to nymphs who sing beautiful songs in spring and summer. Those with a pure soul will simply feel a sense of peace and love, but those with inpure souls will feel like they're being suffocated or drowned and slowly turn insane.
There is another depiction of xanas as well, one of child abduction and theft. These xanas are smaller, thin and dark-colored. Xanas are unable to take care of any children they may bare and as a result swap their child with that of a human. To overcome this change, a human mother can put pots and eggshells near a fire.

As far as names go, Xana is a name used in Asturian culture and as such the names in this generator are based on existing names as well. They've been changed slightly to give a familiar, yet different feel to them to those familiar with Asturian names as a way to mimic the supernatural element of xanas. Some names may still end up as regular Asturian names though.

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.
