The Sin’dorei or the children of blood are the remnants of the Quel’dorei (High Elves) of Quel’Thalas who survived the Scourge invasion and corruption of the Sunwell. The High Elves of Quel’Thalas were once members of the Alliance of Lordaeron during the First and Second War until they defected from the alliance before the Third War and the rise of the Scourge. Following the destruction of their home city, Silvermoon, and the defilement of the Sunwell, the surviving High Elves rebranded themselves as the Sin’dorei or the Blood Elves in honor of the sacrifices of their kin who bravely fought for Quel’Thalas and in honor of their fallen high king Anasterian Sunstrider.
In this guide, we’ll get to know a bit more about the Blood Elves of Quel’Thalas, their appearance, racial traits, and their involvement in the Horde faction. Readers will be guided to a list of our Top WOW Male and Female Blood Elf Names, a list of some Funny WOW Blood Elf Names, and a ranking of our Top 10 Blood Elf Name Suggestions.

The Rising of the Horde in Quel’Thalas
With the destruction of the Sunwell, the surviving Blood Elves suffered from withdrawals and weakening. The Sunwell sate and nourish the Blood Elves within the empire and without it, they became weak and starved from mana. During the Third War, after the fall of Quel’Thalas, Prince Kael’thas became desperate for vengeance against the Scourge and hurriedly joined the Alliance resistance. But the partnership of the Blood Elves with the Human resistance was proven to turn sour and their cooperation in battling the Scourge became bent. During their battles, Kael’thas met Lady Vashj and her army of Naga who aided them against the Scourge. The Humans, however, see such action as an act of treachery and arrested the Blood Elves to the Dungeons of Dalaran. In here, Lady Vashj reappeared again and offered her assistance in freeing his elves from the dungeons. As they escape Dalaran, Lady Vashj convinced Kael’thas to meet his master, Illidan Stormrage, as he may have answers on how to cure the withdrawals of the Blood Elves.
Prince Kael’thas escaped to the wastes of Outland and allied with Illidan in exchange for knowledge about an alternative way of gaining mana. Illidan taught the Blood Elves how to siphon magic from powerful magic sources, including demons and lesser creatures. With this temporary solution for their withdrawal, Kael’Thas sent Grand Magister Rommath and a squad of trained magisters back to Quel’Thalas to teach and spread Illidan’s ways of siphoning magic. In Rommath’s return, he brings news that Prince Kael’thas found a way to ease the withdrawals and taught the Blood Elves how to cast this magic.
During this time, Quel’Thalas is having great trouble with the withdrawals and they cannot gain equal footing in fighting the Scourge and the increasing menace of the forest Trolls. But with the teaching from Rommath and his magisters, most Blood Elves regained their strength and became invigorated. They were able to fight back and reclaim much of Quel’Thalas. Soon, they were able to restore much of Silvermoon City and rebuilt it almost overnight. The Blood Elves were not content with their victories, they spread further north and east, retaking much of the Eversong Woods and pushing back the Trolls away from the forest. To drive away the Scourge from every corner of Quel’Thalas, they marched south to Ghostlands and defeated most of the Scourge in the area.
With the restoration of their kingdom, the Blood Elves decided to look for allies while they await the return of Prince Kael’thas. The Blood Elves were offered aid from an unexpected group, the free-willed Forsaken undead under the leadership of Sylvanas Windrunner, a former Ranger-General of their kingdom. Together, they work closely to purge the entire Ghostlands of Scourge’s presence. With their numerous victories against the Scourge, the Blood Elves and the Forsaken became allies and in the future, became part of the Horde as Sylvanas and her Forsaken decided to join the Horde against the Alliance.
Blood Elf Appearance
Blood Elves’ height is around 6’3” for males and 5’9” for females. Male Blood Elves have more masculine and slenderer but athletic bodies compared to female Blood Elves. Both male and female Blood Elves have long and pointy ears and still possess keen sight in darkness which they probably inherited from their Night Elven heritage. Blood Elves can easily identify arcane energies with their sight as well as the flow of magic. Their eyes glow with magical energy ranging from green, gold, blue, or light purple, depending on what kind of magical energies they are exposed to. High Elves came from the exiled group of Highborne Night Elves who settled in Quel’Thalas for 7000 years. They worshipped the Sun and the Light, as opposed to the worship of the moon goddess by the Night Elves. Their skin tone became pale color and they started to be more active during the day than night.

Blood Elf Names
Blood Elves favor the ideas and perceptions regarding the sun, the light, or the fire instead of the moon and darkness in contrast to the Night Elves. This is very evident with Blood Elf surnames such as Brightwing, Sunhallow, and Dawngloaw. However, their first name still has standard elven name convention with very few notable changes. Their words and names are derived from the Thalassian language, a derivative from the original Darnassian language.

Top Blood Elf Names Suggestions
In this section, we are giving you our Top 10 picks of our best Blood Elf name suggestions based on this guide. The ranking is based on our earlier suggestion for male and female Blood Elf names. We based the ranking on how the name sounds (is it good? Is it impressive?) and how relevant is the lore when it comes to the Blood Elf story. Check out the rankings below.
This name earned our top spot for two main reasons: First, the name sounds elven. The exaggerated spelling makes it look more like a Blood Elf name than a Night Elf name. Second, we took a liking to her background lore as a Sword Sister of the Sunsword. Her twin-blade, Nelkari, sounds awesome too, thus we are placing this name on the top spot.
The Farstriders of Quel’Thalas is the most heroic of all when we recall stories about the siege of Silvermoon. We decided to create a name for a heroic Farstrider who saved many lives of wounded Blood Elves. Plus, we associated the name to the Brightwing clan, the leading clan after Sylvanas fell and became a banshee.
We love the background lore of Calriah. She is one of the powerful mages sent to the Outland to blindly follow the bidding of the Betrayer. What happened to the Sunfury in the Netherstorm? No one knows. Other than that, the name is elvish and has a nice tone for a female Blood Elf mage.
Undead High Elves are still High Elves if you ask us. We came up with an idea about a High Elf-turned-Undead who returned to Quel’Thalas after being freed from the Lich King’s influence. He was welcomed to his homeland despite him being a Death Knight. Aside from this, the name sounds elven but not as striking compare to the first three names.
With many months of not being able to satiate their hunger for mana, it is not for few Blood Elves to become addicted to siphoning mana. This name was created to fit this description: someone addicted to the siphoning. We also like the idea of her being transformed into a felblood elf due to overwhelming demonic energies.
This name is one of our favorite names in terms of lore. We like his background story about freeing his brother, Al’Darei, from being undead when they reclaimed Silvermoon. Quite tragic, yet a satisfying story to be told. For the background story of Al’Darei, see our Undead Name Guide.
Elves are known to be slender yet strong. We came up with the concept of having a brutish or brawny Dawnblade warrior. The name also sounds elven and it gives us an outright idea that the character bearing such a name is formidable and full of strength.
What we like about this name is it can be gender-neutral. It fits for a male or female character. Aside from that, we also love his background story; being a survivor of the siege of Silvermoon and living another day to fight again.
The Sunreaver faction is the representative of the Blood Elves for the Horde. We came up with a name for a Blood Elf Rogue belonging to this faction. The name sounds mysterious and we find it suitable for a Blood Elf Rogue.
Finally, we came up with a name for a Blood Elf Demon Hunter. Naldathel sounds strong and corrupted, which is fitting for a Demon Hunter character.
