Genasi Names: +400 Examples & Generator

This is a list of all the Genasi names I've brind together for my own D&D setting. They are not alphabetised, but with means. 

A player will select a genasi type on their D&D Beyond account settings and then select their first name and surname from that list of available genasi names. 

Your character has no actual connection to his or her real family as they live in a city away from other users so you can create a background for them however you want.

Genasi are one of the core races in Dungeons and Dragons. They're about on par with humans in terms of total numbers, but tend to stick out more. 

They can have any combination of the elements, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. One interesting thing about Genasi is you don't see all four elements represented equally in a particular race.

One day during an expedition into some ancient ruins near their home, Son-lin's father disappeared without a trace.
