10 Sins of Half Orc Names and How to Avoid Them

Don’t use a name that will be difficult to pronounce for your DM.

Try not to give your Half Orc any names of great gods or goddesses from other pantheons, so as not to offend DMs and players who worship those deities.

Avoid using words with negative connotations in English such as “doom” or “darkness” unless you are specifically building the character around their association with these qualities.

Choose a name that is masculine or feminine when applicable (either can work). It might also be best if it corresponds with race and gender roles found in medieval societies: male dwarves could have short Anglo Saxon style names; female humans may want to choose feminine sounding names.

Do not use a name that is already well-known in pop culture, such as Conan the Barbarian or Legolas.

Don’t make your Half Orc’s first and surname the same word (e.g., Ox).

Don’t give them an alliterative name with their race: Halflings would never have something like Hammer of Thor; Elves may want to avoid things like Elvira Elfstar or Erasmus Evergreen.

When naming children after family members, it can be perfectly fine for parents to let kids decide on what they will go by at school—in many cases they are too young to know how challenging diminutive nicknames can become.

In the case of Half Orcs, it’s generally best to stick with a singular name (avoiding things like Hammer and Hilt). If you are still considering an alliterative or compound name, try adding ‘-kin’ onto your chosen first surname.

For example: Tullybane is better than Mallus Brawnyhammer for a male Half Orc. A female might prefer something like Alana Kilnbrookover instead of Lonna Axehandraven. Similarly, if someone chooses Knight as their surname then they could choose Kyla Shieldknight over Kalen Blackswordbearer—though some people may find this more jarring because there can be quite a lot of difference in spelling between different English words.

It’s important to consider the implications of each name, as well as how it will sound verbally out loud when spoken aloud. For example: Carrisse Twinblade is more visually appealing than Karras Twinstrike—but someone might have difficulty pronouncing or remembering that second name if they are not used to reading from a phonetic alphabet.

In conclusion, having an alliterative Half Orc surname can be challenging – but there are ways around it! Just remember to keep in mind what sounds good and appropriate for your character before settling on anything too permanent. You may need to try several different names until you find something with which both you and others who know your character are comfortable.
