Orcs are fantasy creatures, best known from the 'World Of Warcraft' game, that are hungry for war and extremely violent.

These creatures have featured multiple times in places such as fantasy novels, literature, games and movies. Choosing a suitable Orc name for your 'World Of Warcraft' clans can be a difficult task, especially considering how these names often require a lot of creativity.

The first time an Orc appeared in popular culture was in J.R.R Tolkien's novels, and they have now become increasingly famous across the world. Orcs have large, green, muscular bodies with tusks and they maintain a constant hatred for other living things.

To find a suitable name for an Orc tribe in your next campaign, take a look at this list of Orc tribe names, categorised into both funny and strong tribe names.

An Orc tribe is a group of Orcs who live and work together. Having a strong tribe name displays the strength of the entire tribe and is a matter of great pride for Orcs.

Orcs are a great choice of creature or character during such campaigns as they aren't simply stronger than other options but their appearance makes them equally scary and intimidating.

This means that, with the help of a great name, Orcs can be a great character choice for both new and old players of 'World Of Warcraft'.

Choosing a tribe name is therefore an important decision, especially because a player cannot change it later in the game. Barbarian clan names, that bring about a sense of war are powerful choices for cool Orc clan names.

Why not choose your 'World Of Warcraft' Orc clans names from our list, or take inspiration from the list to come up with similar made-up tribe names yourself! You may also want to check out our list of the best Draenai names or the best funny clan names.
