Random Sartarite Name Generator

Art © Dario Corallo
I needed a random Sartarite name generator so I created one. I think this is better than the guidelines on p26 of Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes.

We assume the sex of the NPC has already been determined, else D6: 1-3: Female, 4-6: Male.

 D20   Name Type 
 1   one-syllable name (please make it up) 
 2-10   two-part name with initial + final elements (roll below) 
 11-16   three-part name with initial + middle + final elements (roll below) 
 17-18   four-part name with initial + middle + final elements + suffix (roll below) 
 19-20   three-part name with initial + final elements + suffix (roll below)
