The Cardassians hail from the planet Cardassia Prime, in the Alpha Quadrant. Cardassian culture is strictly hierarchical, ruthless, and largely intolerant of other species. Family is incredibly important and reflects the hierarchical obsessions of the wider culture.

Good Cardassian names take into account the importance of family and thus the family name. They tend to be comprised of 1-2 syllables and short, sharp sounds with the occasional longer L sound to round things out.
