I don't know if anyone has asked this question or something similar, but I was researching into Elves, the different races, history and suff, when I came across this website; it stated: "Elves prefer names that flow off the tongue like wind through the trees. One of the most common problems GMs and players alike have when playing non-human characters is naming them. Most non-human characters can’t be named from a list of historic names, forcing DMs to make up totally new names." In a story that I'm slowly planning, I have this main character who's an Elf, currently with a Japanese name. I like the name I gave him, but this website got me wondering if it would be better to create a name for him. Currently I'm rather inclind to, because I'm creating my own world for the story and I don't know how many important non-characters there are going to be. I've I give this main non-human character a name I create then I would feel I had to for the rest of the non-human characters I have in the story, so I was wondering what others think to help me decided.
