'World Of Warcraft' has several complex characters to draw on for inspiration.

Taurens happen to be one such class of characters. They’re large humanoids who have a bovine appearance along with horns and hooves.

Living in Mulgore’s open plains in central Kalimdor, they stand at between nine and 12 feet, weighing between 650 and 1000 lbs. There are different character classes within the Tauren race, including the hunter, warrior, druid, and shaman classes.

Tauren names typically tend to be more than just a single name. Their last names are often family names but performing an extraordinary act of bravery can result in a Tauren being able to choose their own last name.

They usually receive a birth name and a second name once they reach adulthood, with their names highlighting a valued quality of theirs, or an important life event.

We hope our list of Tauren names gives you all the inspiration you need. For more, take a look at these Half-Orc names and these Blood Elf names.
