Orcish names

Most orcish names derive from words in their language that have some
complex meaning or hidden significance to their families. Typically,
this is the name of a favorite thing or relative. Family names don't
exist; most orcs have last names related to some great deed of heroism
or honor. However, in the case of truly incredible deeds, an orc might
take on the last name of his father to ensure that the chronicle of
that terrific deed lives on.[16]
The concept of honor is seen in every level of orc society, even in
their naming practices. An orc’s first name is given early in life,
often derived from a family name or the name of a great hero. The tribe
bestows the second name after the orc reaches maturity, this name based
upon some great deed. Such a practice gives rise to surnames such as
Doomhammer, Elfkicker, Foe-ender, Skullsplitter, Thumper, and the like.
This second name may be changed if a new one seems more appropriate.[17]

  • Male Names: Grom, Thrum, Drog, Gorrum, Harg, Thurg, Karg.
  • Female Names: Groma, Hargu, Igrim, Agra, Dragga, Grima.
  • Family Names: Doomhammer, Deadeye, Forebinder, Elfkiller, Skullsplitter, Axeripper, Tearshorn, Fistcrusher.

Tauren Names

The language of the tauren is often harsh and low sounding, which is
reflected in the names of their children. The last name of a tauren is
usually a family name, handed down through the generations. If the
tauren has performed some act that has made an impression on the elders
of his tribe, however, he may choose to take on his own last name to
commemorate that act.[4]
Tauren have several names. They receive a name at birth and another
during a ceremony to celebrate reaching adulthood. This adult name
describes some event in their lives or some notable individual
characteristic: for instance, Blackhide, Earthborn, Halfhorn,
Hidemaker, Riverwatcher, Scar, Splithoof, Stormchaser, or Windrunner. A
tauren may also acquire a third name that he uses when dealing with

  • Male Names: Azok, Bron, Turok, Garaddon, Hruon, Jeddek.
  • Female Names: Argo, Serga, Bessey, Beruna, Halfa.
  • Family Names: Darkthorn, Thunderhoof, Stormhorn, Quillsplitter, Stonebreaker, Plainstalker, Spiritwalker.

Undead Names

Like their dark lady, Forsaken keep the names they had when they
were alive. As most Forsaken are human, these tend to be human names.
If a Forsaken cannot remember their name, they may make up a suitable
name or read one from a headstone. Some invent surnames that imply
their desire to eradicate the Scourge.

  • Male Names: Roberick, Magan, Danforth, Lansire.
  • Female Names: Yellen, Limmy, Sarias, Mierelle.
  • Family Names: Dartfall, Blacksling, Ghoulhunter, Blastlich.[17]

Blood elven names

The past is a burden to the high elves, yet they maintain naming
rituals that are millennia old. Many of the names of elven priests and
heroes have become the names used for elves in modern times. The high
elves share a connection with the sun that is quite prevalent in their
choice of family names.WoWRPG 37

  • Male Names: Mariel, Athaniar, Anandor, Tharama, Viridiel, Malanior.WoWRPG 37
  • Female Names: Anarial, Freja, Driana, Coria, Alanassori, Melanion, Azshara.WoWRPG 37
  • Family Names: Boughstrider, Dawnblade, Lightbringer, Morningray, Suntreader.WoWRPG 37

(As you see, it's for high elves, but their name culture has not changed)

Troll names

Jungle troll
youth do not receive public names until they have earned a name in
battle. Until then, they are referred to by generic diminutives.MoM 102
Jungle troll names look simple but are surprisingly complex. Their
language is largely syllabic, and various syllables can be added to the
beginning or end of a troll's name to denote status and ability. Troll
given names are usually one syllable, to facilitate the additions of
these titles. Some trolls drop their given names altogether and are
known purely by their titles.

  • Male Names: Vol, Ros, Mig, Gal.
  • Female Names: Shi, Mith, Hai, So.
  • Family Names: Trolls do not have family names, though they occasionally use their tribe's name in its place.
