Is a Cleric without a powerful name even worthy of their powers?

Good cleric names carry a heavy weight of authority and sanctity, befitting their role as the hand of their deity. Unlike other character types, a cleric’s name should evoke a sense of reverence, tradition, or mystique, reflecting their devout background and the deity they serve.

Even if cleric and paladin names are sort of similar, I personally think that a good paladin name should have more of a military tone, whereas a cleric’s name should focus on the sacred herald aspect of the “divine enforcer class fantasy” they both share.

Below are 72 unique cleric names, equally balanced between human, elven and dwarven ancestries.

D66 Cleric names

This list should be equally useful for both Game Masters setting up a new religious sect led by a prominent cleric, or players looking to create a cleric with a memorable and meaningful name. Either pick a name, or roll two six-sided dice (2D6) and find the perfect name for the character who might belong to any pantheon or religion in games like DnD 5e, Pathfinder, Adventurous or other fantasy settings.
