a list of names from old age

In modern times, animated fiction shows like 'Flintstones' introduced us to the world of cavemen.

When intelligent life started evolving on the Earth over a million years ago, cavemen started exploring this new world. These primitive cavemen can be credited with creating fire and helping with the progress of humanity.

Although humans no longer live in caves, modern humans are still related to primitive cavemen. This is the reason that people are eager to search for names related to cavemen.

Here are some of the most interesting names for cavemen with different form and versions to help you pick the most popular options.

Funny Caveman Names

To track the path we have traced over the years towards our evolution, let's start this list by mentioning the earliest era, the Lower Palaeolithic or commonly considered the old stone age. Let's start with the time when humans were more like apes than humans.

Then, let’s head to the end and finish with Neanderthals. Humans could not speak fluently as we do nowadays, which is obvious. Thus, assigning names to people who could barely talk was not a good idea at that time.

Caflok (German Origin) has two syllables, and it's quite a short name to remember as well for a big person.

With the list of some cool cavemen names, let's move on to the prehistoric era, known as the Middle Paleolithic. It was also considered the Middle old stone age for a better concept of how we are moving through the timeline of evolution.

In the early days, homo sapiens were found on the African sub-continent.

At that time, Europe and Asia were conquered by Neanderthals and Denisovans. The language of that time might appear a bit of gibberish to us as we have more clear and well-pronounced names in the present time.
