Dragonborn Names: +220 Examples & Generator

Welcome to the Dragonborn Names Generator! This simple tool will allow you to create a name for your Dragonborn. The tool will randomly generate a first and last name, plus any middle names you would like.

I don’t know about you guys, but for me, the Dragonborn DLC was one of the best Skyrim features to date. With Dragonborn came a whole new world of story and adventure reserved just for the Dragonborn (that is you!) and your quests. 

Along with that came all sorts of interesting locations with even more intriguing names. Just like how real world places are named, fictional ones are too. 

The towns, cities, islands, satellite stations and other such landmarks within the Elder Scrolls Universe have been given some very unique names amongst their own fantasy realm.

Shaped by draconic forces, both physical and spiritual, dragonborn originally hatched from dragon eggs as a unique race, combining the best attributes of dragons and humanoids.

The dragonborn are those who were born of dragons, as their name proclaims. 

Some of their forerunners took the aspect of dragonkind and walked proudly through a world that greeted them with fearful incomprehension.

Common Names for Dragonborn

Dragonborn names are a challenge to come by. Not only are there hundreds of variations on the traditional Nordic names, but it’s also difficult to find non-traditional Dragonborn names. 

Of course you can choose from a long list of Common and High Elf names as well, but these don’t fit with the “Dragon” side of AD&D rules for Dragonborn. Here you will find the best unisex names I could find from all over the internet.

Dragonborn 101

Dragonborn were beings who were born with innate dragon-like abilities and characteristics, as a result of exceptional draconic heritage.  They were as powerful and strong, though not quite as large, as full-blooded dragons, yet they generally preferred to walk upon mannish legs instead of their ancestral claws, and used mannish weapons in battle. 

The first Dragonborn were mortals who had absorbed some draconic essence through close association with Dragonkind. These individuals exhibited small traits bestowing upon them a draconic appearance. 

Through selective and successive breeding this recessive trait became dominant and more pronounced in future generations with the newly formed exhibiting traits found only in true dragons.

Nature

Higher-ranking dragonborn tended to see those beneath them as their temporary responsibility. They treated all servants and citizens with respect and courtesy, even if they were not deserving of such treatment. 

These dragonborn often went out of their way to aid those that were in need. Although these dragonborn could be just as cruel as any other race to an enemy, they would never intentionally inflict pain or suffering on those that did not deserve it.

The Past

The dragonborn's origin was uncertain and shrouded in myths. 

Some believed that Kossuth created them as a divine experiment to cross dragons and humanoids, while others said that they were the dead spirits of dragons who needed new vessels to inhabit for their kind to thrive again. 

Underdark dragonborn believed that their race was created from drow eggs by Vulkoor after Lolth kicked Vulkoor out of the drow pantheon.

The Faith

Dragonborn in Abeir never adopted the practice of divine worship. Their society was one that revered their ancestors and believed that they watched over them as immortal, spiritual guides. 

They did not attempt to appease or influence the spirits and gods with rituals, practices, or sacrifices; they instead focused on earning the favor of their ancestors through exemplary living and honoring their forebears' memories.

Civilization

Before determining what dragonborn names you will give, you should understand their community. 

Any act of treachery or violation of an oath, committed either knowingly or unknowingly, was met with the most severe punishment. Depending on the nature of the crime, this usually meant death. 

The only dragonborn who were able to escape these harsh punishments were dragonborn who converted to other religions; they would be banished from their clan instead, unless their religious leader was powerful enough to demand otherwise.

Lifetime

They live about 80 years, but in most cases the average dragon born dies at the age of 20. 

Eleven years ago, when Martin was born the dragons were thought to be extinct and dead; that was due to their ritual of procreation which basically involved mating siblings or twins (the more powerful dragonborns were born when both parents were dragonborns).
