Given names for midgets are pretty straight forward. The names generally sound Nordic. They are also very short (usually no more than two syllables). Some dwarves have more complex names combining one or more Norse words (e.g. “Skorgrím”).
Dwarf names are guttural sounding and followed by a clan name. Clan names fall into 2 types: a compound name or a dwarven-sounding name. Examples include Silverstone, Deepdelver, Torevir, and Rakankrak.
