The aasimar are the plane-touched descendants of angelic, human, or good outsider parents from 'Dungeons and Dragons,' a fantasy tabletop role-playing game and 'Pathfinder: Kingmaker'.

The aasimar race is born from the union of a mortal and a half-celestial being. Hence, they look very similar to humans but have minor traits of their unusual ancestry and can be recognized by their unearthly beauty, shining hair, glowing golden halos, and strange eye color.

They are headstrong with confident personalities, are insightful, and are highly perceptive. They have increased power over light and dark and possess the ability to see everything in complete darkness. They also have the power to generate daylight spontaneously. Furthermore, they have a strong resistance to extreme temperatures and corrosive effects.

The name of an aasimar is unique and since they are born half-human, they also have last names. It is also because of their half-human status, a wide number of aasimars are also given human names which are equally beautiful and magical as the beings themselves.

If you are looking for the names of these celestial miraculous beings, look no further. This list has the best Dungeons and Dragons aasimar names.
