40 Sylvari Names With Meanings For Your Characters

'Guild Wars' Sylvari names are usually based on the Celtic language.

The Sylvari is a race of elves from the video game 'Guild Wars'.

They are a very young race, as compared to other characters in the game. One unique thing about these characters is that they are not born in the game, instead they simply awaken beneath the Pale Tree, filled with the knowledge they gained during a process called a pre-life dream.

In the game, this species of botanical humanoids emerged around 1302 AE from the Pale Tree in Arbor Bay, which was planted by Ronan and raised by Ventari, a race of warrior who lived in Maguuma. They are characters who are filled with curiosity and a favourite of many players.
