Bothans are short, relatively furry humanoid with more than a passing resemblance to Earth lions. Their culture revolves around political, economic, and personal success, which leads to frequent confrontation and intrigue.

Bothan names are often complex, and the differences between male and female names are usually too subtle for outsiders to grasp. Keep in mind that throaty sounds or combinations of syllables that make good battle cries help create great Bothan names!

Good Bothan Names

Good Bothan names often incorporate guttural or sharp sounds, and the use of clicks or apostrophes is not uncommon. Listen to recordings of lions and tigers for sound inspiration!
