D&D Halfling Name Generator & Guide

“Two orcs walked into a bar…” – the halfling on the stage started, looking at the audience. A few seconds later, an unknown voice said – “What kind of a joke is that, Rosco!?” – “No, I mean two orcs literally just walked in!” – he said, drawing his dagger.

Standing about 3 feet tall, weighing only 30 pounds, a Hafling resembles a small human as their proportions are rather similar. In fact, the very term “halfling” came from the fact they are considered to be about half of the size of a human.

They are rather quick and agile, able to avoid dangers where others would fail to do so. Some say no one can have the tenacity and courage like a Halfling, even under the greatest of dangers. Others would say it’s simply an enormous amount of luck.

They are mostly jovial, preferring to contemplate the present over the future. Taking pleasure in simple and basic things, many even prefer to get into trouble rather than wallow in boredom. And if there’s one thing most Haflings like, it’s good cheese.
