60+ Goblin Names With Meanings

Goblins have become a popular source of inspiration for fantasy writers.

Goblins, despite their short and weak stature, have gained notoriety widely, especially in pop culture and media.

They are mostly depicted as dwarf-like humanoid creatures in folklore. They can be found in games like 'World of Warcraft' or 'Dungeons and Dragons.'

In D&D, goblins are a  fairly weak and common race of neutrally evil humanoid monsters that lower level player characters often have to face in combat. They are similarly depicted in 'WOW' as small, and green or yellowish-green creatures with sharp and pointed features and high intelligence, although they often tend to lack common sense.

Read on for goblin names, and for more fantasy character names, take a look at Dragonborn Names and Gnome Names.
