Pregenerated Names

These are just a good list of names, separated by race and gender, to help you get a few ideas as you build your character. Feel free to use other names, or even make up names from scratch. If you’re looking for even more ideas, try doing a Google search on “Czech names,” “Egyptian names,” or some other nationality. A lot of foreign names fit perfectly well in a D&D medieval fantasy milieu. (For example, I took several of the Gnome names from Czech names, the Shifter names from Polynesian names, etc.)

First names are separated from last names, allowing you to “mix and match” as you see fit.
