Andorians hail from the Alpha Quadrant, from the moon of Andor which is the center of their Empire. Culturally Andorians are militaristic and consider it a great honor to serve in the Imperial Guard. While tending towards violence, they nonetheless also place great value on family.

Good Andorian names build on that reverence for family, and incorporate a surname that reflects the Andorian’s clan, as well as a forename or given name. These names sometimes incorporate a signifier communicating the individual’s gender as well.
