The Miraluka are a diasporic people. After their original homeworld was rendered uninhabitable, they adopted Alpheridies as their replacement. The Miraluka are a sightless species, with only vestigial eye sockets. They are quite Force-sensitive, however, which more than makes up for this.
Culturally, the Miraluka consider themselves all to be a part of one massive family, and as such do not use surnames. Their given names commonly consist of only two syllables, and are often a bit discordant in sound to other species.
Good Miraluka Names
Miraluka names often draw on unusual combinations of sounds or syllables, so feel free to get very creative when crafting a name for your character! Try things you wouldn’t otherwise.

Female Miraluka Names

Male Miraluka names are almost indistinguishable from female ones, though males are usually addressed as ‘Brother’.
A collector of rare books and manuscripts, Brother Oeleuhl has a great appreciation for rare knowledge of all kinds. His is not a shop you can stumble across. No, you need to know it exists to have any chance at finding it, and even then, just making it through the door is a test.
