Relatively simple name Generator for Deep Gnomes

Post by Gwain » Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:44 pm

This generator is relatively simple to use, and has lots of race options, one of which is deep gnomes

Justice is not neccesarily honourable, it is a tolerable business, in essence you tolerate honour until it impedes justice, then you do what is right.

Spelling is not necessarily correct :)

Thanks for sharing, Gwain. I have a favorite I use for elves. I'll be book marking this!

I dunno where they got these names, it's not bad but I'd say that most of these names are Welsh-sounding, with lots of Ys and the like. We've only seen a few deep gnome names in the books, with names like Schnicktick, Belwar, Firble. When making Blingdenstone I tried to stick with names in that vein, and especially picking up the name Svirfneblin itself as a Norse word, tried to give the mobs Norse-sounding names, so if you're stuck for a name you might also try some kind of Norse name generator and pick one that doesn't sound like something you've heard of before!
