Names for Planar People


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion


I'm running a planar game in a few hours (wow, less than 2 now oh boy) and I'm curious what kind of names the good folks here at the forums think people from other planes might have.

Angels are easy-- google, and done. But, well, people from Axis, well, that's a bit harder. Any ideas? I would desperately appreciate some help on this very important topic of mine. And feel free to share other cool names you've found as well.

"People".

Seriously, there's nothing more condescending than the assertion that "creatures like me are people and creatures not like me aren't". I know that's not exactly what you're looking to hear, but it might give you NPC ideas.

Lawful Planes - Ancient Roman style names would work well. Dromedius, Andarion etc.

Chaotic Planes - Aztec style names Taochtclan, Xep'Hofchan, the trickier to pronounce the better.

Demonic Names - Google Goetic names.

Daemonic Names - Ancient Greek can work.

Oh crap. My apologies. I just... didn't get it. Individuals' names. Duhhhh.

Good idea there with the Roman stuff. I didn't think of that-- I ended up going with words like Well, Follow, Red, Get and Dock with numbers afterwards-- ended up with words like Follow 133, Red 714, Dock 88225482, that kind of thing. It worked well for inevitables, at least.


Axiomites, from the word axiom I give them Greek names. Modrons, latin-sounding, Regulus and Primus. Inevitables, Indian. Archons, gnostic. Asuras, azatas, divs and devas Persian. Guardinals, Egyptian. Qlippoth Sumerian.
