Worldbuilding Wednesday, 6/21/17: Magic Users

Worldbuilding fantasy world

Continuing on my theme of randomly-generated magic spells items, let’s look at wizards and magic users in fantasy fiction. There are many memorable characters that come to mind, and if there’s one thing they have in common, it’s an unforgettable name. For example, Gandalf the Gray. Short and to the point; and more importantly, much easier to say and remember than Saruman and White or Radagast the Brown. (When he became Gandalf the White later on, I confess I didn’t like his name as much.) Then there’s Jack Vance’s weirdly alliterative Iucounu the Laughing Magician, who was not so mirthful as petty and vengeful. On the other hand J.K. Rowling’s creations Snape and Dumbledore had names suggestive of their personalities, the latter friendly and playful, the formerĀ  sinister and bitter.

Here’s some magic-user names, randomly generated, that have a certain ring to them. Need one? Take it!
