Dhampirs are mortal humanoid descendants of vampires, often referred to as half-vampire or half-dead. They are tall, slender, and move with unearthly grace which allows them extraordinary fluidity, while their gaze is ever-piercing.
While some say they are offsprings of a male vampire and a human female, others believe the mother got bitten by a vampire while she was pregnant. Whatever the real truth may be, they are often orphans and rarely accepted into any society.
Being shunned upon, many decide to leave their homes and bad memories behind and instead focus on the new life ahead. Traveling the roads in front of them, some of their names become notable, names like Lothaire, Edana, Amaris, and Ingram.
Good Dhampir Names
Dhampirs are often raised in human societies and so their names are often human as well, though there are stories saying some of them took a different name later on in life, one that reminds them more of their vampiric heritage.
It was clear he wasn’t human the moment he was born. Though the parents didn’t have the courage to actually end his life then and there, he was never looked upon with favor, and he spent his childhood fearing and hating everyone around him. The constant bullying left serious mental and physical scars that he likes to remember whenever he’s exacting his revenge upon those who hurt him in the past.

Living in a big city, she had a somewhat easier life compared to living in a small community as there were other orphans present from all over the region. Life wasn’t easy, however, and the daily injustice they all endured was one day simply just too much. Her reaction, while to be expected and perhaps even commended, was so brutal the local captain of the guard had no other choice but to imprison her. She is currently being charged with murder where her elongated incisors were named as the murder weapons.
Female Dhampir Names
Female Dhampirs, regardless of who their parents were, always give birth to human children, and that is if they manage to reproduce in the first place.
While her real name is unknown, the locals have several, such as Lady Darkness or Shadowfiend. The stories that surround her speak of the horrors the village has endured all these past years, and if someone doesn’t step up, confront, and kill her, the villagers are surely doomed to fail.
After trying to keep the baby’s existence hidden from others, ultimately failing at it, her mother decided to leave the child at a nearby monastery’s doorstep. Today, having been raised by a priest and several monks, she has accepted their faith and agreed to travel the country to spread the words of wisdom and hope.
She has lived through many stages of her life, starting from being an outcast as a child and young adult, all the way to now being considered an old person who has figured life out. Now, after living for a couple of centuries, she feels as she’s only beginning to make sense of her existence and that the clarity she achieved marks the start of a completely new life, one without envy, jealousy, or hatred.
Male Dhampir Names
While many Dhampirs turn to evil, never forgetting the continuous injustice brought upon them, there are those who managed to reject such notions and instead embraced life which entails the need to eradicate vampiric creatures instead.
Somehow, despite all the hardships he had to endure during his childhood he managed to stay calm enough to look at the situations from an objective point of view.

As mortal descendants of a vampire, one way or another, they are slender and graceful humanoids with pale skin and elongated incisors, where their piercing gaze is one of the main reasons why humans find them mistrustful. Growing up, Dhampirs tend to experience many bad sides of life which ultimately makes them want to leave their home to become adventurers, and whether they decide to do good or bad, they do well to hide their identities. Think about who their parents are or were, where and how did the character spend their youth, what are their goals, and create a name worthy of the mysteries the new life ahead contains.
