Create elf names with the Sindarin elf name generator! View lists of names, generate random names, or choose an elf name based on your own name. It's great for tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs) and online multiplayer games (MMORPGs), or just for fun! This generator creates names for male elves and female elves of all ages, and can be used to create fantasy names for blood elves, night elves, dark elves, wood elves, high elves, wild elves or to make any cool elf name.
This name generator is based on the Sindarin language that J.R.R. Tolkien created for his elves in contemporary Middle Earth, as portrayed in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The Sindarin elf language is very complex. The generator can make many different names based on Tolkien's linguistic rules. It includes the translations and meanings of each name from Sindarin. Sindarin has lots of quirks, and many different naming conventions based on gender and age.
There are a handful of elf name generators around already, but I couldn't find one that was both pure Sindarin, and that gave the option to create both random names, and names unique to the user of the generator.
I used the Sindarin elf name lists on realelvish.net with many thanks due, along with a few other sources of Sindarin language to create the elf names. There are over 800 different prefixes alone, and that's before we even get onto the complicated gender/age/relationship-based name suffixes!
I confidently assumed I could write the generator in a couple of days - instead it took me several weeks! I hope the result will be acceptable to all the die-hard LOTR Sindarin enthusiasts out there!
