How To Come Up With A Great Orc Name

There are no fixed rules for coming up with an orc name. But over the years, certain conventions have arisen that most fantasy fans and writers adhere to. For instance, names are primarily only two or three syllables long. Any longer will suggest a complexity that isn’t typical of their species. 

Also, syllables like “Ax,” and “Ag” are pretty popular building blocks of Orc names. You might also want to separate the syllables with an apostrophe. For example, “Thu’Nar” works better than just “Thunar.”   

Lastly, associate the orc with something they are known for. For example, “Garax The Raider” or “Garax Stonebreaker” is a much more apt orc name than simply “Garax.”
