Here's the Ork Name Generator from "Waaargh The Orks!". Enjoy.
Orkish names usually have two elements: a prefix and a suffix. The prefix is the first half of the name, and the suffix is the second half (for example, Grim-Gob, or Grimbog). An Ork can have two such names composed in the same way (for example, Grim-Bog Naz-bad, or Grimbog Nazbad). Orkish personal names, place names, tribal names and names for spaceships or war machines follow the same pattern.
The Name Generation Charts include most of the basic Orkish root words listed above, plus a few generally meaningless gutteral name elements.
Ork names can be composed according to your choice or randomly generated on the charts below.
To generate a name, first roll a D6 to determine which chart to roll on for each element of the name.
