I just gotta say, you’re great at making fantasy names! These all sound super cool :eyes:


thank you :blush: me and my co-author did our best with them


One thing that I recommend is not trying too hard to make names seem ‘outlandish’ or ‘interesting’- if you do, you may end up with a bunch of names that the reader can’t pronounce, making them all blur together. It can be difficult to find the balance between “easy to read” and “unique”, but for the most part, it looks like you’re headed in the right direction with these names. I do recommend experimenting with mixing and matching the first and last names.

thanks for your advice
