50 Argonian Names With Meanings

Argonians have a lot of interesting names, rich in history.

The Elder Scrolls games series are hugely popular and from them, we get some cool Argonian names.  

Argonians are reptile folks in the world of Elder Scrolls. They live in the swampy marshland that the Argonian people refer to as the Black Marsh, so Argonian names are often called "Black marsh names" by outsiders.

Argonian names are derived from two major Argonian languages, the Jel and the Tamreilic. Receiving a name in the Argonian tradition is quite fascinating. The Elder Scrolls Argonian names are obtained on the day of Chukka-sei, a traditional day of naming celebrated in the season of Hist-dooka. On the day, a Tree Minder collects the sap that drips from the Hist tree, which the young Argonian drinks, and is given a name in Jel.

Their names in Tamreilic are either a separate name or the Jel name's meaning in Tamreilic. Tamreilic is generally preferred because Jel names are quite weird to pronounce. Here is the list of some of the best Argonian names.
