Eladrin Names: +300 Examples & Generator

In this article, I’ve put together some random Eladrin Names so that you can either use them as inspiration or just to spice up your game.


So if you are like me, you love having a unique name for your characters and NPCs in your DnD games (just check out my favorite names list to see all the stuff I’ve used). Whether you are creating an NPC or Character, the last thing you want to do is see that someone else picked the same name. 

It is a character from the Dungeons & Dragons game. They are fey creatures, cousins to elves and humans, that live beyond the mortal veil in Arborea, among the Outer Planes of the Multiverse. 

To those who know of their existence, they are often viewed as strange yet very powerful beings with strange but powerful ways.

Can you imagine a world where the boundaries between the Material Plane and the Feywild are blurred? 

Where elves might step through into your world in a glen out of time? 

Where otherworldly creatures are drawn into your world by the strange magics that surround you? That is what the Eladrin and the Gentry represent.

You can find the Eladrin name generator above, but at the bellow we will discover the meanings of names. 

Eladrin Names for Female

Every D&D player has a character that they love to play. Whether your character is the party leader, the muscle, the rogue, or the healer - everyone needs a good name. 

This section provides you with a list of female eladrin names to help make sure you go into battle with the best name possible.

1. Anna

Anna is a short and sweet name in Quenya language, that can be used as a female first name if we find an explanation to the mysterious origin of those who carry the name.

Used as a feminine form of Anne, it is the spelling used in Hungarian, Italian and English.

2. Freda

Freda is actually one of the more popular names when it comes to D&D elves' names. The meaning of Freda means “peace” and calm.' 

When I think about Freda it makes me think about Bjork's home in Iceland, it truly evokes an otherworldly picture.

It's pronounced FRIH-duh. 

In that tongue of woodland creatures, the word Freda has a little extra oomph to it—an accent that sounds like an elongated ee. 

But in the Common tongue, you'd pronounce Freda like "fred" or "freddy" with no other sounding tacked on the end.

3. Melian

It is a Sindarin name and means 'a dear gift.' The spelling isn't confirmed by Tolkien himself in regards to how it is supposed to be spelt, but I like to use 'M' instead of 'Me' as it looks more aesthetically pleasing.

Melian was a noble of the Maiar, who came to Middle-earth as a messenger from the Valar in answer to the prayers of Eruhíni, according to Tolkien's mythology. 

4. Calen

Elvish names are constructed of a prefix followed by a name. They don’t always mean anything; they just add flavour to the name of someone who uses them. 

Calen, pronounced ‘Kal-En’, is a rare one as it does have a meaning: 'the green one'.

If you like the idea of giving your child a name straight from Middle-Earth this may be a great option for you.

5. Siofra

The origins of the name are in the Irish language and have to do with 'an elf, a fairy.' It is fun to spell. 

If you hear it spelled out aloud, it will sound like,'Sigh-auh-fruh.'

It means 'a little elf' in Irish, so think of the cutest little elf you can think of then apply that meaning to your baby girl's name.

6. Eowyn

In the first edition of The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien stated that the name was descended from language used by Rohirrim. 

However, after the publication of the second edition, he decided that it had no clear meaning in Rohirric.

With this new understanding he omitted Eowyn's name from his linguistic Qenya compilation Words, Phrases and Passages in The Lord of the Rings. 

In the fictional language of Sindarin, Eowyn could be translated as 'Horse-joy', which refers to what she is the most proud of.

Eladrin Names for Male

The Eladrin are as mysterious as they are ancient. They were one of the races that fell from the heavens when Celestials warred with the Dragons. 

Although they appear similar to Elves, the Eladrin have been shaped by millennia on Arborea and have unparalleled knowledge of the Feywild, Celestial Heavens, and a vast history of warfare with Gods and Dragons. 

In this section, we will look at Male Eladrin Names and how you can use these names in your games.

1. Frodo

Frodo is the hero for the entire story. He is the hobbit who carries the ring, who decides to leave his peaceful home of The Shire and do what's right and good despite all of the danger that will result from it. 

He inherits the One Ring with little idea of what that really means, or how big a task he has taken on.

Popular among the fans and forever in our hearts, Frodo shows great wisdom and strength when he volunteers to join Sam on their quest.

The character Frodo was named after the English word "froody," which means "faraway."

2. Arod

Arod is a name that is both masculine and exciting to hear. It's a name that survives in the spotlight and never goes out of style. The meaning of Arod is "prompt" or "hazel," which should be familiar to Aragorn fans. 

It's also linked to snakes, which matches up with the idea of things that are swift, like a snake.

3. Elrand

Elrand is a unique name that has its origins in the Elvish language Tolkien created for his works. 

It is a variation of Elrond, meaning manly (El meaning man and rond, lind which means mound or ring). 

We've found that it is meant to show the gender preference of the receiver, and can only be given by a father to a son. It is also considered one of the most clever names you can give a baby boy.

4. Wade

From the Anglo-Saxon, Wade means 'boundary' and 'ford.'The meaning of the name Wade is  'ford.' 

In England, the name has long been a favorite, giving it to about 2,000 men each year since 1880. 

Wades have also settled in Scotland and Wales. Others have made America their home.

6. Callon

Callon started life as a Sindarin name - an Elven language from J.R.R Tolkien's world of Middle-earth. 

The language and the culture associated with it are full of mystery, but that doesn't mean Callon should be considered one-of-a-kind.

7. Peregrin

In the 4rth century AD, Peregrine were those who traveled to foreign lands for religious purposes. 

The name also appeared in England before the Norman conquest, as a variety of surnames which became widespread because of Norman families with this name. 

Today, Peregrin is mostly used as a surname and is quite rare as a given name.

We talked a lot about names, but now, we will dive into the Eladrin race.

Eladrin Race 101

The Eladrin are very old, even by Elven standards. They were some of the first elves to awaken in Athel Loren and can trace their ancestry back to the first fey creatures that found their way to this realm from the Hither barrows. 

Together with their cousins, the Kaern, they have formed a tight-knit society within their isolated woodlands. 

The average Eladrin is naturally curious about the world, and many can be tempted by other lands beyond Athel Loren's borders.

They favor form-fitting clothing that accentuates their lean torsos and long limbs. They have angular features, with sharp cheekbones, large eyes, and fluid motions when they walk.

But powerful muscles can be deceptive. They are just as strong, fast, and agile as an elf. The difference in physical traits is mostly due to their racial differences. 

An Eladrin’s skin tone ranges from fair to pale, although gray or bluish-white is also common due to the normal coloration of their home plane.

Subraces

D&D has always had eladrin, but the book never gave any information on how to play them as a player. 

D&D 5e has given us new information and subraces on how to play this fey race (which I love). 

I want to go over these eladrin subraces and talk about their characteristics, flavor, and some racial feats that can help with your character.

Winterkin Eladrin

Their eye color may range through shades of blue or green, as well as the occasional fleck of yellow. 

Iridescent feathers or crystalline structures grow from their forelocks and shoulders—these vernacular tattoos represent each winterkin’s individuality.

One distinguishing trait, however, is the light that radiates from their bodies, a side effect of having traces of Fey blood in them. 

This gives them an ethereal appearance; a winterkin eladrin glows like an old-style television set.

Moon Elf

The race of Moon Elves (Moon is a prefix for all their subraces in Neverwinter) were introduced in the 4th edition Player's Handbook 3 as subraces of Eladrin. 

They're also mentioned in other books, such as the "Song and Silence" series. In 5th edition, they've yet to be introduced, but I think there might be an opportunity to change that.

They are quick to point out that while other elves may rely on song or swordwork, moon elves' power comes directly from their connection to the hidden workings of cosmic power in Realmspace. 

However, they have a great disdain for "dark" or drow elves; as well as avariel, who they view as having chosen to abandon their heritage in favor of human religion.

Sun Elf

In the 4th edition of Forgotten Realms, the Sun Elves are introduced as a sub-race of Eladrin. 

They dwell in the realm of {{Faerûn}}, specifically in Heliogabalus and Nimbral. The sun elves are born from union between some fey creatures and humans from Faerûn.

The gold elves are tall, slender, and have symbols of the sun on their skin. 

They are also known as sun elves or gold elves. Sun Elves have leaf-shaped ears and bright golden yellow eyes.

Llewyrr Elf

Llewyrr elves are scholars of the natural world and can be found in every corner of Faerûn -- from the trade cities of Amn to the dwarven mines 60 miles below the surface of the Great Rift. 

Specializing in arcane magic, Llewyrr elves study the laws of nature through active observation and systematization. 

Deeply rooted in elven tradition, they have a keen interest in druid lore and often seek out circles of druids to learn their wisdom. 

Their understanding of Druidic is crucial for this, as some circles use it as a secret tongue. 

In recent years many Llewyrr have become adventurers, traveling far from home in pursuit of arcane knowledge or powerful artifacts from other ages.
