Argonians In A Nutshell

Argonians are reptilian humanoids that originate in the swampy, rainforest region, situated southeast of Tamriel known as Black Marsh. Black Marsh is a province filled with inland waterways and impenetrable swamps.

Like how reptiles reproduce, Argonians start their early life as eggs. It has been their tradition to lay eggs near Hist trees which serves as their hatching pods. It is considered rare for any Argonian to be born outside of their swamps. Although there are few accounts that say otherwise.

Argonians have gills that allow them to effortlessly travel underwater. Their ability to breathe underwater are well used in combat, which made them great ambushers in rivers and swamps. Argonians also possess other reptilian features such as fins, spines, spikes, or horns. Their adaptability to the Black Marsh made them unevenly immune to diseases.

Argonians preferred to isolate themselves against their neighboring provinces. They have centuries of experience of slavery from the hands of the Dunmer which made them detest the Mer race. Very few details are recorded about Argonian culture except for the common tales about their dependence on the Hist trees from their homeland. Others say that Argonian culture is primitive or tribal. But within the game, there are pieces of evidence that suggest otherwise such as them having a Royal Court, extravagant Shadowcastles, and pyramidic architectures.

The native language of Argonians is called Jel. They define it as the “closest speech to the thought” or as a conversing way to communicate with the Hist trees.

Top 10 Funny Argonian Names

We’ve seen names like “Looks-Under-Rocks” or “Watches-The-Roots” in the game itself. By essence, some are already funny. Whether it was intended by the developers or not, we can’t tell.

But hold up, let’s add more funny names to the list! Take a look at our Top 10 hilarious suggestions.


What makes it funny?

Deek The Hard

This is a no-brainer name. Deek means “young” in the Jel tongue so stop what you’re about to think right now.


Say no to capitalism. We aren’t born to buy.

Shavee Those-Ankles

Yes, shave those ankles alright.


Is this an Overwatch reference? Needless to say, I wouldn’t be surprised to see an Argonian NPC (or worst, a player) that has that name.


I am pretty sure this is funny. This is funny. Okay, it sounds like an IGN of a player but Argonians can be named like that! Believe me.



Not only that it sounds funny, but it’s also a real word from Kassandra’s dialogue in ESO which means… Sacred egg. Do you want to be named after a sacred egg?


Okay, is this a Star Wars reference? I don’t know. But either way, we don’t want a clan named Dark-Mole.


The Argonians’ morale was low when the Dunmer started their invasion and enslavement. We can say that they reached rock-bottom… pun intended. Yea It didn’t work.

Onion Shredder

Wow, a shredder. Sounds like a cool name until it was… onion.


Is this an insult for the Nords? No one knows.

Our Top 10 Best Name Picks

Earlier, we get to know Argonian culture and attributes. We enjoyed producing Argonian names based on written in-game evidence from ESO. Despite that some names are really funny, we get to know some nice Argonian names that strongly represent their description, racial attributes, and skills.

We compiled a list of our Top 10 best names based on our earlier suggestions. Check them below.

  1. Djame Vakkaleel (female) -Simple and unique. The Vakkaleel clan name sounds very Argonian and makes a perfect pair with Djame.

  3. Hexardar Brawn-Born (male) – Hexardar sounds legendary. The Brawn-Born fits perfectly for the powerful name itself.
  4. Ruvash Brawn-Born (male) – Ruvash also sounds epic and cool. Brawn-Born also fits nicely with the name.
  5. Vosmeht Xal Rajhleel (male) – Wow, this sounds like a real NPC in an ESO game. We put it in the 5th spot because the name is kind of long. But we find it very Argonian.
  6. Ei-Nur Harbor Mender (female) – Ei-Nur and Harbor Mender tribe is associated with thievery and piracy. We are placing this name on the list for the nice combination of the name and clan name.
  7. Haj-Kimil Tusik-Bearer (female) – A perfect combination of a smith and healer. This name earns this spot for its Argonian taste and well representation.
  8. Al-Norg-ka Krona-Kajuhleel (male) – This name earns this spot for its Argonian meaning. It gives off an imprint of a huge reptilian humanoid wielding a heavy hammer. Terrifying and intimidating.
  9. Il-Mevaa Lake Drowner (female) – This name strongly sounds and suggests a rogue mage. Imagine utilizing magic in guerilla or bandit tactics? Savage.
