I'm part of a group of new players trying out DnD 5E. One of us is creating a half-orc, and would like help choosing a name.
Of course picking a specific name is quite opinion-based, so I'm asking for resources and advice on how to choose one, not for a particular name.
What resources might be helpful? Are there books from other editions that might be useful? The PHB and DMG don't really get into naming a half-orc.
What issues should we consider? How might the parents' cultures affect the name given to their child?
How might the half-orc's name affect our roleplaying or how the character is treated? For instance, what if the half-orc adopts the ethnic family name of a human father and we get a character named Gorok Smith? Or what if the mother is human and decides to give the half-orc a human name with an orcish family name like Byron Karrgek? What if a human mother raised the half-orc without a father, hence she names him Byron Smith? If we keep using Byron Smith in our games, we forget that he's a half-orc.
