'Dungeons And Dragons' is one of the most popular roleplaying games.

Air Genasi is a fictional subrace from the game Dungeons and Dragons. They're a part of the Genasi race.

Air Genasi are one among the four main types of the Genasi race in dungeons and dragons. There are Water Genasi, Fire Genasi, Earth Genasi and Air or Wind Genasi. They are characterized by their elemental properties. The Air Genasi wield the power of the wind. Their element is wind and even their names are closely based off words which in one way or another have something to do with wind.

The names of Air Genasi are supposed to be gender-neutral, but in this article we have tried to categorize them into three categories. Male, female and gender neutral. As most of their names are gender neutral, naturally, that particular category is the largest. Most Air Genasi types names have close links to wind as their elemental force is supposed to be wind. Thus, most of the names you would find here will have something to do with elemental of wind, skies or storms. Genasi last names do not exist, but nicknames do. The class of Earth Genasi is your best choice stats wise, but Air Genasi are cool too, since they don't even need to breathe. Air Genasi have blue skin, hair, and eyes.

The list below contains nature names, monk names, names which have wacky meanings like "forest of the blue skin".
