Aldmeri Dominion - Naming Your Character

Ok so it was mentioned on a previous thread about the worry of many common or funny names probably occuring during character creation such as Dovahkiin, Annihilator, names from Skyrim etc etc

So here are just a few ways to get your creative juices flowing when you want to come up with a character name.

Roleplayers will likely want to have something highly lore-based for an authentic name so it's recommended you read up a little bit first;
Altmer Names - UESPWiki
Bosmer Names - UESPWiki
Khajiit Names - UESPWiki

However for those who just want something unique and sounds like it fits in with the game you could try utilizing Google Translate (the free iPhone app is also useful to use on the go).

How it works:

Start by listing words associated with your race, such as:
• Altmer - mage, magic, magician, tall, smart, illusion, destruction, powerful
• Bosmer - quiet, archer, archery, swift, quick, agile, stealthy, hunter
• Khajiit - sneaky, cat, feline, warrior, strong, assassin, thief, patience, crescent

Try translating some of these words into different languages and hit the little speaker icon on the right hand side (note that some languages are currently not supported with text to speech).

Different languages may sound better for different races but at the end of the day it's what you're happy with - and it's nice to have a character name with some meaning behind it!

If you run out of ideas based on character description, why not try words relating to your province? e.g. woodland, forest, leaves, tree, sand, dune, hot, island, beach, waves, cliffs, peak.

My character name Do'Kosh is a bit of both lore and made up. The prefix Do' for the Khajiit race means Warrior and Kosh is just a shortened version of Koshka (кошка) which in Russian translates literally as 'cat'.

Hope this helps inspire some names for the future :)

Feel free to add to this if you have something to share

Well, fine explanation from Do Kosh.

But i wish to add a small info, all AD races can do what they can in random way:

Few Bosmer = warrior
Few Khajitt = mage
Few Altmer = thief

None is impossible. But logic of races, is nature as you said from first post.

Do not forget what AD classes in near future to discover.

Right? :)

The Aurel in mine comes from Auri-El. He is known as the king of the Aldmer or the Elven Akatosh.
A little more on that here: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Auri-El#Auri-El
The rest is just an ending I wanted to stick on.
I should also add that many female Altmer names end in a vowel, much more than male Altmer names.

I know what I'll name my three characters, one for each faction. Two of those have been my avatar names since I started playing games. The last one I found by using a translator on the internet for orcish. A hint: My orc name will mean "pride". ;)


If an argonian turned into a werecrocodile would there be any difference in appearance? Like, at all?

I am thinking about naming my character Ceyisemero. Ceyisemero means Guide of Shadows in the Ayleid language.


I am the shadow within a shadow. I will accept any job; however I will execute the target, or maybe even the person who hired me; it all depends on who has the most gold to give. Even then you can not trust me to let you walk away with your life.

My names have a long basis in TES game play since Arena. My khajiit is Khagiinet Do'Kaassi, who was created by sister Ginny to play in Morrowind when she visited us. CedarLilly Wynde is actually my Bosmer name and FyreLilly Wynde is my Dunmer's name. Ibis Helios is my Altmer and Skyla Salisbury is my Breton.

A Nord name I vary in Oblivion & Skyrim so will have to settle on one for TESO. Orc & Redguard I am thinking about. I rarely play those races but I know that in TESO I will have a PC in each faction, so a Redguard or Orc is very probable. Skyla was born in Arena and CedarLilly's concept began there to be cemented in Daggerfall; and Morrowind is the game where most of my continuing characters came alive. Long live Tamriel ... Dawn's Beauty!

** My characters generally have first/last name whether needed in TES or not, because often I play them in other games which do require birth & surnames.

I found my Orc's name in Morrowind in my Photobucket account, she is an example of the mod I was talking of earlier of sexy Orcs:

Slooma Muzgob

[Image: SloomaMuzgob-1.jpg]

In the Morrowind village of Neacrythe she was a dishwasher at the DragonsRest Inn by day and the discoteque bouncer at night. Jobs were hard to come by in Neacrythe and she had to pay for her Inn room.

What she will look like in TESO I have no clue nor what class she will hold. I only wish she could be as beautiful.

This one plans to be Kharjo. After all, his name is Kharjo!

I typically use the name Nordin for all of my role playing games. But I had to scrap that game for the TES series. Possibly keep with Tal'Lathari all though it looks similar to the style for Khajiit...

Mi'zuki chose her name from the Japanese language. It means 'beautiful moon.' With how Khajiit are tied to the twin moons, she thought it most appropriate.

I'll choose something that sounds Altmeri, like Relunyl or Enderion.


By arrow. By blade.
By tooth. By claw.
By shock. By frost. By flame.
The Aldmeri Dominion will dominate Tamriel.
Our enemies will fall until the Throne is ours.
