Lizardfolk Name Generator & Guide

“The softskins are near.” – the reptilian creature hissed, as the slow line of armed humans made their way through the edge of the swamp. “Yes, Uugraucouk, they are.” – the Lizardfolk leader responded, his eyes never leaving the prey. “Our dinner is ready for the taking.”

Lizardfolk are reptilian humanoids, up to 7 feet tall, and can weigh more than 200 pounds. With a long, powerful talk, sharp claws, and teeth, they are very dangerous even without weapons, and their scales protect them just like armor would.

Living in patriarchal tribes, they are often guided by basic instincts where hunger plays a major role. Thanks to the swamps they usually live in, they remain hidden from the outside world, though they sometimes venture out to hunt bigger prey.

Some Lizardfolk names are short and easy to pronounce, while others are a real tongue-twister. Their native language is Draconic, so it’s no wonder. Names like Rot, Repax, Arhtausoskm, Thulthaegrord, and Jhaaghathar are some of the examples.

Lizardfolk Female & Male Names

All females tend to the eggs and are responsible for maintaining the tribe’s camp and lair. Males rule the tribes and are responsible for hunting and fighting.

  • Shichaark

When we mention Lizardfolk, it makes us think of cold, calculated, and instinct-driven monsters, who just hunt, kill, and survive. However, there are many reasons why some would stray away from such a characterization, and when that happens, you got a unique recipe for an interesting character. Make a Lizardfolk, give them a name, and let’s see what the world has in store for someone like that.
