Dwarven Names

The recent release of the Hobbit Trailer reminded me that I looked at Tolkien's original source for the names of his Dwarves. I took the old Norse Poem and extracted all the names from it, modified them to fit english better, and made a list. With this it easy enough to make a random table for Inspiration Pad or Tablesmith.

Anarr

What, no Borriz Borrizman? My DF player will be crushed!

Nice list, though, I may have to clip and use that (for barbarians if not dwarves).

Very cool. My last Dwarf character was named Fjalar. I thought I had made that up, but I must have read it somewhere.

Doh! Now people are going to know where I've been getting all my great Dwarf names from!

Perfect! Working on my campaign setting right now, and race-specific names are always welcomed.
