Vagabond Name Generator & Backstories

“Sorry to bother you, ma’am, and I hope I’m not scaring you. My clothes are like this as I was, believe it or not, attacked by a badger. A vicious bugger, and if I’m being honest, I’m not sure how I survived. Anyway, may I please ask if you could spare any old clothes by any chance? And perhaps some water, please? Oh, I’m sorry, my name is Urien Waldorf, nice to meet you.”

Forge Your Own Name: Discover Our Name Suggestions & Backstories

Table of Contents

Vagabonds are people without a home who, seemingly wandering wherever fate takes them, are also referred to as wayfarers, vagrants, and even adventurers. Some see them as lost souls, while others envy their freedom from a safe location.

They travel the world where they want, or where they are able to at the very least and are usually the type of person who doesn’t mind not having everything they need close by, and the lure for unknown locations and people makes them continue on.

Being so used to traveling, the adventuring life suits them more than just fine, and they find themselves in situations after which their actions, and then their names, are remembered, names like Ungren Stow, Gilly Westmere, and Alyna Valenwood.

Depending on their life situation anyone can either choose to become a vagabond or be forced to do so, where the result remains the same. They are without a place they can call home, and lead a life of a wanderer regardless of any potential goals and plans for the future. Think about where the character was born, when did they become a vagabond and why, whose fault was it, how they cope with that, what might their goals be, and think of a name worthy of the uncertainness clouding their every step.
