Storm Giant Name Generator & Guide

“The great evil has awoken yet again.” – the King solemnly acknowledged, as much to himself as to the rest of the council. He then lifted his head and looked at his General. “Summon Aukkmirn, tell him his king calls for aid” – he said with determination in his voice while some of the members mumbled in fear at the mention of the giant.

Storm Giants are more than 25 feet tall and can weigh thousands of pounds. They live either at very high altitudes and usually on floating islands, or deep in the oceans, hidden away from most of the other living creatures who roamed the world.

Each of them can hurl magic lightning bolts, capable of laying waste to anything that moves. However, Storm Giants are good-natured, leaving others in peace unless provoked. One thing that defines them all is the appreciation for an act of kindness.

They live mostly in isolation and rarely communicate with others, let alone other races. Not many people saw a Storm Giant, and it would be quite unlikely to know their name. Farnudr, Sygopr, and Agnaurtr are some good examples.
