As they slowly started to gather, forming a circle, his eyes were fixed on his rival, the chieftain who has always tormented him and made him feel like the runt of the litter. “Well, well, if it isn’t little Grach Lowbones. You dare challenge me, boy!?”

Tracing their lineage back to stone giants and even titans from long ago. Living as shamanistic clans, they were tricked by the demons and the traitors of their own kind into drinking demon blood, which made all who drank to obey their new masters.

Battling on their own world, and on Azeroth as well, they now live on Kalimdor in huge cities but also small settlements as well. They are proud, strong, and like to boast, sing, feast, and fight. Weakness is not to be tolerated in almost all clans.

Orcs can be selfish, but also spiritual and honorable, bringing some of the more positive traits to the table. Orcs are proud of their names and some good examples are Del Noseguard, Esha Quicksmoke, and Morguk Goreaxe.

Female Orc Names

There is no place for weakness and females Orcs are just as capable as the males. While perhaps not completely equal in raw strength, they can easily outmatch others by a combination of skill, vigor, and toughness.

  • Gorgonna
  • Gamora
  • Lokgra
  • Grekka
  • Merga


Hunter and the best bow user in the clan, she can shoot while running, and hit her target nine times out of ten. If you saw her doing that, without knowing who it was, you could mistake her for an elf; she’s that good. Along with her trusty black wolf, they hunt anything they want.

  • Golkra
  • Zorrana
  • Nokka
  • Kuhga
  • Unge


As a former scout in Ashenvale, she’s used to being in enemy territory to the point that she feels almost lost in safety. While she is currently having her well-deserved rest back in the clan’s camp, she’s already longing for danger and the unknown, where she feels most alive.

  • Ehkeva
  • Gamdi
  • Zetoma
  • Shoti
  • Sanege


Being frail and somewhat shorter than the average Orc, she uses her agility, stealth, cat-like movement, and long-distance stamina to fight her foes. While she doesn’t get the respect she deserves, her actions have certainly made others pause and think before trying to do something to hurt her.

  • Grengha
  • Tornu
  • Mezra
  • Rigmarra

  • Drandar
  • Jorin
  • Ishi


One of the first orcs to run into corrupted counterparts of his race, he quickly warned his clan of what he saw. For the time being, they managed to stay hidden, but as the time passed by, no Mag’har will manage to stay truly distant to the dangers that the demonic blood brings with it.

  • Aggralan
  • Geyah
  • Kashur

Strong, proud, and honorable, with a somewhat primitive and clan-oriented lifestyle, Orcs are a very interesting race. The best of them prove to be worthy allies who hold to their words and promises and would die before breaking the oath. The worst of them are sly, cunning, and treacherous creatures, caring only about themselves and their own personal goals. Shamanism and spirituality still have a place in their lives, and the thought of an honorable race still occupies the minds of most of their kind. Create an Orc, come up with a worthy name which your enemies will utter in terror, while your allies will sing you praises, and venture on through the world that awaits you.
