181 Aasimar Names & Backstories

aaisimar mage

Table of Contents

Aasimar are descendants of good celestial beings, and as such don’t really have any specific type of names as they mostly depend on the society and culture they were raised in. Dwarves may use names similar to their own gods, humans often give a human name to avoid any unnecessary attention, Elves may give an elven name so that the character fits in more easily, and so on. Think about where the character lives and use any existing social and cultural norms to help you with the naming process.

Good Aasimar Names

One way to come up with a good Aasimar name is to use a first name that feels suitable for an Aasimar, while the last name can belong to the family that raised them or a clan they are a part of. For example, if raised by a dwarven clan, the character could be named Eakeel Silverbeard, humans could name them Lydia Brimstone, while an Elven parent could decide on Zeorsese Springbrook. You can also find angel names, modify, and use them as first names.

Female Aasimar Names

As there are no official naming conventions to follow, think about what kind of a name would be given by those who raised the character. Regardless of the type of the name, ending with a vowel can usually make the name look more like a female name, and I recommend checking the ancient greek names for inspiration, as well.

Aasimar who fall prey to dark powers, either in their youth or early adulthood, or simply turn to evil due to some life event, are well on their way to becoming one of the fallen.

Aasimar Last Names

Just like with first names, for the same reasons, surnames differ greatly, so instead of having specific guidelines simply start with any syllables that spring to mind, and connect anywhere from two to five. Since almost any syllable can work, make sure to pronounce it out loud, both with and without the first name to see if it sounds like a match. For example, you could use a softer name like Sylonmah, or something opposite such as Vroximir.

Mythological Aasimar Names

When it comes to mythological names, you can draw much inspiration, if not outright use those names, from the many existing mythologies, especially Greek.
