Catfolk are feline humanoids, where looks can greatly vary when it comes to how much they resemble cats or humans. They are free-spirited creatures who see themselves as explorers and wanderers, always ready for something new.

While not overly religious they accept deities as powerful spirits, and they are sometimes blessed by nature, or some other source, which gives them the innate ability to perform and cast magic. This usually puts them on top of society as well.

Catfolk like to wander and discover things new things, and they are all encouraged to leave their homes as those who don’t travel are said to be unlucky in life. Traveling offers many ways to get their names known, names like Parar, Fomu, and Mumkis.

Consider the nature of the character, their likes, dislikes, what they are good at, and come up with a name worthy of everything they will discover.

  1. I was really excited to find this fantasy name generator, but I wanted to play a gender-neutral character, and that’s not an option under the drop down menu.

    Please add non-binary to the menu. Thank you,

      You don’t need to select a gender for the generator to work. Most names will do very well for non-binary characters.
