Names in the Empire

I'll write up an explanation at some point, but for now, I'm just going to post around 200 randomly generated male names because I spent entirely too much time stumbling through Java to have my time go to waste. I'll probably do something similar for female names when I get the chance.

As always, feel free to wildly disregard my absurd love of accuracy.

Edit: actually, I'll put up a tl;dr explanation for imperial naming schemes that will justify completely disregarding this if you feel like. Officially, citizens are supposed to adopt the standard tria nomina, complete with women getting kind of shafted in the naming department. However, actual, practical use of the names has changed in the century since the Third Orcish War. The appalling casualties suffered among the Legion during that time led to two things. First, women began to enter both the military and the public sphere at an unprecedented rate--partly out of necessity, and partly because the traditionally male dominated society was in no position to oppose them. Secondly, non-citizens, especially non-humans, were granted increased rights and recognition in return for their support of the Empire.

This had two large effects. Firstly, traditional female naming schemes were largely abandoned. While some families continue to name their daughters using the feminine form of the father's nomen, there is now significant variation in how families go about naming their daughters. Some families have adopted a style similar to that used for their sons: the daughter inherits the family nomen and is given a feminine-form praenomen. Additionally, women often receive cognomen beyond simply "wife of _______," especially if they serve in the legion or public sphere.

Secondly, names and naming schemes from outlying areas of the empire have gained increased prominence and popularity, even among citizens. Names from far flung imperial holdings have found their ways into common usage, and a number of families, even prominent ones, have begun to abandon the traditional tria nomina in favor of simpler, but perhaps more sensible, naming schemes.
