Klingons are a humanoid species with an incredibly warlike disposition, native to the planet Qo’nos (pronounced Kronos) in the Beta Quadrant. A major galactic power, Klingons are proud, often tradition-bound, and much concerned with honor.

Klingonese is a robust language which uses many guttural syllables in succession to communicate complex meanings. It’s good to keep this in mind when designing Klingon names!

Good Klingon Names

Good Klingon names are guttural and complex, but with an initial syllable or two that can be used for an easy nickname amongst other species.

  • T’uklarrd Warmuj

  • Oshorgh Wovac
  • Kurlum K’tong
  • Pohox Rrog

  • Echexa Girgucx

Ayahk Kikect

Ayahk is known for honor, though his skills on the battlefield are somewhat lacking. It has not happened yet, but someday and someday soon someone will comment on his lack of skill and he will be honor-bound to challenge them to a duel. It is unlikely to end well.

Obord Sirdel rules her family with an iron fist, as is her right. She harbours dreams of greater power, however, and wishes to one day ascend to the Klingon High Council. It will not be easy, but Obord likes to think she is bloody minded enough to accomplish her goal.

  • Nuhowi Osh
  • Tsapoll Furghi
  • Negal Sarni

  • W’stakmiyr Krecx
  • Latbom Oso

L’gaja Kormadho

L’gaja applies Klingon philosophy to her approach to science. Relentless, take-no-prisoners, and single-minded in pursuit of a goal. It has led to great gains in Klingon botanical studies, but as of yet her efforts have received little praise or attention, and that is beginning to grate.

  • Udrig Dohnorv
  • Ekuvi K’mporgog
  • Anoh Vrenog
  • Ach’ir Barmad
  • D’biluno Nizha
  • Trat’oja K’tas
  • Melkolla Klugh

Vosh Drargum

Vosh disobeyed her family to attend Starfleet Academy. Though she now holds an honourable position as Chief of Security, it still rankles that her family has cast her out. She just prays she never has to face any of her siblings in a conflict.

  • Agrav Treltirni
  • T’asivi Druckoz
  • H’worgess Eck
  • Yihlahl Ditho
  • Tsonnev Meho

Male Klingon Names

Male Klingon names should be complex and guttural and keep in mind the warrior inheritance of the culture.

  • T’achol Ortog
  • K’lapaq Vurv
  • Gehmil Mvidh
  • Shomod Shuch
  • L’chulam Xork
  • Chuki Zamecki
  • Huz K’mpammarc

Ubogh Duckig

Ubogh was a skinny and awkward child, given little attention and no respect by most. He worked hard though, and has begun to gain in stature and prowess. Soon, he may even catch the eye of the warrior he has loved for years.

  • D’ostohk Mnanjict
  • Adragh Emmed
  • Et’as D’ghexidh
  • Wirpow Krach
  • Shudahl Oth
  • Ch’vorrad Wih
  • Bobess G’od

L’ukraxo Arsix

Honor is for those too timid and weak to seize victory by any means necessary. This creed has served Arsix well in his career as a pirate and interstellar mercenary. Klingon High Command, however, is unimpressed with what Arsix’s actions do to the reputation of Klingons as a whole. And they aim to resolve the issue with extreme prejudice.

  • Ebas K’gexelt
  • Mobud Mnibh
  • Vahl’ox K’mpozh
  • Purgh Vrebal
  • J’trad Unjaghi
