The secret to a good name for an orc female is to choose something that represents the character's personality.

Unlike its male orc names, which are bold and guttural sounding, a female orc name can be melodic. The selection of orcish names usually require rigorous brainstorming, hopefully this article has made the task easy for you.

Orcs are huge muscular, green-skinned giants. These fictional creatures form an important part of games such as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D.) You can also use these names for half-orcs. Not all of these names are originally for orcs but we think they fit perfectly!

We hope this list helps but you may want to also look at kobold names or roegadyn names for more inspiration.
