Dungeons and Dragons is a celebrated role-playing tabletop game that has a lot of imaginary creatures in the game.

One of the most innovative creations of D&D is the introduction of Tieflings. Tieflings are humanoid creatures that are derived from the human bloodline.

Tiefling names have a special significance to them. The names have three categories. Some are derived from the Infernal language.

Others have names that reflect their culture. Tieflings are minorities in human groups and they can be both male and female. Due to their internal heritage, they are suspected of being a nefarious race in D&D.

They have large horns and sharp canines but their skin tone is similar to human beings. They do have surnames, though they will focus more on their first name or virtue names. A Warlock is considered as the best class for a tiefling.
