I am slightly confused with the Khajiit Names. Ofcourse there are names such as Aheh, Shakir (hehe), Ajan, Ma'Khar.
But what about the titles?
There are many titles here are the known ones.
Dar = Thief, clever
Do = Warrior
Dro = Grandparent
J/Ja/Ji = Bachelor, Young Adult
Jo = Wizard, Scholar
M/Ma = Child, Apprentice, also used to imply virginity
Qa = Unknown
Ra = Shows Status
Ri = Status, often tribal leader
S = Adult
(Thank you UESPWiki)

Where do you put them exactly? As my Khajiit is called Shakir, do I call him Dar'Shakir? or Shakir'Dar? Both sound equally nice, but since Shakir is a bachelor I can call him Ji'Dar'Shakir? or Dar'Shakir'Ji?
So, UESP wiki says that Joshaba from Morrowind says that having two titles is foolish.
So then, I'll just keep Dar. But UESPwiki also says that it is mostly prefix. I think that means infront of the name.


Any help would be nice
(Please no insults, I love Elder Scrolls, recently found out RP community)

The titles, or prefixes, are placed first in the name. See this list of khajiit names: http://uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Khajiit_Names


Perfect society is always elsewhere.

be careful with these friend! there are good and make your characters name seem more lore friendly but don't let the name of your character define your character! let your character define the name!

Generally most people would put the title in front of their name. You don't have to follow that though. You don't actually need a title either, you could just have a name if you wanted. Don't let some obscure lore reference stop you from taking two titles, if that's what you wanted to do. He said it's foolish, but that is just one minor character that said that, so it doesn't make it necessarily true.

If you want the name to be proper, you should put the title as a prefix, aka: before the name.
My Khajiit is Jo'Rakha, Wizard, and then the name (Perhaps it would be Wizard of Honor, because Jo is Wizard, and Rak is a high honor standpoint, or something?)
But, I've always had a theory...
What if you were Va'Darra?
Va = To be, Dar = Thief/clever, Ra = high status, would you be 'To be Thief of Honor, or To be Honored Thief', or something? Kinda a bad example, with To be, but you get what I'm sayin.
Names are a complicated thing, and I've learned to use my imagination with em, especially with the Khajiit and Argonian names.
