World of Warcraft Goblin Name Generator & Guide

“Of course, of course.” – the goblin merchant kept saying, ever-sure in himself. “I’m tellin’ ya, this here is the one and the only, the very original, schematics of one of the newest gnomish inventions anyone has ever seen.” The two goblin gentlemen exchanged glances before looking at the design. “I must say, Ketqix, you’ve outdone yourself.” Before the merchant could smile, he continued – “so I have to say sorry for what I’m about to do next.”

Goblins are small humanoids of high intelligence who live in a rather strict trade-oriented hierarchy despite their chaotic individual nature. They occupy roles of all possible types of merchants, legal or otherwise, and are very cunning.

They create all sorts of gadgets and while most of their inventions offer great impact in what they do, they can very well malfunction and explode on the spot. They can also create various vehicles that often end up aiding the Horde one way or another.

They are proud of their names and good examples are Ryxle, Kwazqa, Tekle, Nuvizno, and Rapqa.

About three feet tall, of green skin and big pointy ears, Goblins are intelligent creatures, though often not wise enough. Contrary to their chaotic nature, as a race on its whole, they live in a strict hierarchy. That plus the fact they are prone to experiments, and accidents, tends to lead to interesting situations, to say the least. Whether you’re looking to play a small character who will cast a large shadow or simply someone who will bring a sense of humor, by playing a Goblin you can do it equally well. Find a name that fits your character’s personality and go explore.
