Celevine

/ke-le-vin/

Male or Female

Protector Aasimar

The name itself is angelic or related to celestials. We think that this name is a strong representation of an Aasimar character, and deserve the top spot for this guide.

2

Ziegdal

/zig-da-l/

Male

Protector Aasimar

Scourge Aasimar

Fallen Aasimar

The name is good as an Aasimar name. What makes it superior is it fits any subrace without changing much of the name’s context and our provided lore.

3

Vuskara

/vus-ka-ra/

Male

Scourge Aasimar

Fallen Aasimar

Reckless is the key term associated with this Aasimar name. It’s perfect for Scourge Aasimar who engulfs themselves with divine flames or for Fallen Aasimar who immediately cuts a creature in half not knowing whether it is good or evil.

4

Mevraan

/mev-ra-an/

Male

Protector Aasimar

The name itself refers to something that is sanctified. The name sounds pure and holy and we think this is perfect for a Protector Aasimar choice.

5

Boeijah

/bo-wei-yah/

Female

6

Fajriel

/fah-ri-yel/

Male or Female

Protector Aasimar

The name is celestial-like and heavenly. This Aasimar name is also a good choice for Protector Aasimars. Its name lore is awesome too, about dawn or daybreak.

7

Llhava

/liya-va/

Male or Female

Scourge Aasimar

Fallen Aasimar

The name is associated with burning or flames, that is why we place this under the Scourge Aasimar. The name is also a good candidate for Fallen Aasimars who are consumed with their obsession with killing evil creatures. That’s a nice and hefty meaning to start with, right?

8

Heirani

/hey-ra-ni/

Female

Protector Aasimar

Scourge Aasimar

First of all, this name is very feminine. It fits well for female Aasimar. Its lore, associating the name to a heavenly crown, adds a nice background story for the name. But the lore description is inferior compared to the other names above mentioned.

9

Merithia

/me-rith-ya/

Female

Fallen Aasimar

Refers to a “fallen one”. This Aasimar name is a perfect description of a formerly good and righteous Aasimar who became tainted with corruption.

10

Astaniel

/as-ta-ni-yel/

Male or Female

Protector Aasimar

Scourge Aasimar

Fallen Aasimar

This name is over-all good and generic for any Aasimar. We place it on the tenth spot because it lacks the ‘unique’ or ‘cool’ factor for a name.
