The Wood Elves of Valenwood

Wood Elves, or the Bosmers, are notable for their superior marksmanship and hunting skills. They are masters of the bow and stealth, and most of the time associated with thievery. They consider themselves a part of nature and have the ability to command wild creatures. Bosmers are Aldmers who first inhabited the surrounding forests of Valenwood. They adapted well to the area and were later on transformed by it.

Some noteworthy Bosmers names we heard from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim were Faendal, Nimriel, and Anoriath. In this guide, we’ll get to know more about the famous elves of Valenwood and suggest some noteworthy Bosmer names. We’ll share with you the characteristics, attributes, customs, and culture of the Bosmers so we can name them accordingly.

We’ll introduce you to our Top 10 Bosmer Names picks for Male and Female characters. Not only that, we’ll add on the list some Funny Bosmer Names that we hope to see in-game and Ranking the Top 10 Bosmer Names.

One with Nature

Bosmers are nonbelievers of the Aldmeri culture and traditions. They prefer a modest existence with the land and its humble creatures. Their Altmer cousins typically consider them naive and rowdy in comparison to themselves. Compared to the rest of their Mer cousins, Bosmer seems to be the less influential than the rest.

Despite their lack of formality and political involvements, every Bosmer family or clan member excels in archery, hunting, and scouting. With their expertise with bows, agility, and stealth, enemies succumb to death before lifting their swords. Moreover, they have natural talents in controlling lesser wild beasts. Some young Bosmers show advanced intellect when it comes to warfare and tactics. Since their homeland is usually attacked by Imperials, these youngsters became very adaptable and eventually become experts in defensive warfares.

Bosmers follow a strict code of conduct called The Green Pact, which influenced most of their lives in Valenwood. It is said that the pact guided the very existence of their race since the migration of the Aldmers to Tamriel. The pact comprises some rules centered on not harming the forests of Valenwood, including not eating anything from plants and consuming only meat– including the corpse of defeated enemies. Now we know why their Altmer cousins find them savage and uncivilized.

It is said that Bosmer homes are created from the enchantments on the trees and leaves and are not constructed or created. The forests’ trees grow bigger in size and they bend it with enchantments until a shelter is created. Because of the influence of the Green Pact, metalworks and wooden utensils are not common among the Bosmer. Their bows are made from animal horns and sinew. Common melee weapons are clubs or blades from stones or obsidians. Some Bosmer traders, however, resort to the importation of metal weapons from the Altmers and sell them among Bosmer soldiers.

Bosmers In Elder Scrolls

Bosmer Name Conventions

Bosmer names are still based on their Mer language and most likely have the same name convention as with most of the Mer races. They have a distinction between male and female names. Their names must center around describing them as swift, stealthy, and precise. Let’s correlate these recognized characteristics of the Wood Elves and create some of our Top 10 Male and Female Bosmer names below.

Top 10 Bosmer Clan Names

Most Bosmers do not use last names. But throughout the saga, some Bosmer last names were included within the game. Examples of these are Blushade, Forestsky, and Ivyvale. There are also names introduced from ESO such as Arrow-Catcher, and Woodwalker. We can notice that the emphasis of Bosmer’s last names is similes of flowers or trees and/or emphasis circulating on Bosmer’s love with nature.

With these facts in mind, let’s share some of our Top 10 Bosmer Clan Names with small fan-made lore each.


  • Astervans are native Bosmers who protect rare blossoming flowers in the southern region of Valenwood. They are known as strict practitioners of the Green Pact and huge tree critters are their primary meal.


  • Birkhollows are courageous hunters who preferred hunting in pairs. A common hunting animal for them is huge Mammoths and Sabre cats. A hunting pair typically journey northwards to Skyrim to poach for these beasts.


  • Black-Ironwood is a native tribe of Bosmer tanners and sculptors. They mainly deal with the fur and meat trade, especially with the Nords. They are known bow-makers through bone sculpting and skimming.

Red Mallets

  • Red Mallets are known thieves from across Valenwood. They typically steal newly-made bows and smuggle them to neighboring regions that wanted their hands on Bosmer bows. They are a common enemy of Black-Ironwood.


  • The “Snow-Deep” Bosmers. They are a group of migrants who settled indefinitely on Skyrim. They took a liking at the vast hunting grounds of Skyrim’s tundra and are thrilled with the area’s chilling regions.


  • True-Hawks are the feared bowmen legionnaires of Valenwood. Their clan believes that archery is a divine skill that pleases Y’ffre himself.


  • This Bosmer clan belongs to a lineage of expert marksmen commonly hired as assassins for high-value targets such as politicians or royal personalities.


  • Betdalnors are beast herdsmen. They befriend and command all sorts of rabid and wild beasts. They dislike animal husbandry and prefer the animals to be free and hunted in a more controlled and disciplined manner.


  • The “Fern-Bosmers”. They are located in the lowland areas of Elden Root and are known keepers of the fauna that surrounds them. Korumers are free traders trading their alchemy knowledge for basic wilderness supplies.


  • Laureleshians are known Bosmers of royal descent. They are one of the few tribes who expelled the Green Pact practices. Unlike other Bosmers, Laureleshians are interested in the turmoil surrounding Valenwood. They send their sons and daughters to Cyrodiil, Morrowind, or Skyrim to study and participate in Altmer politics.

With the suggested clan names above, we can easily formulate and create lore for the surnames of a Wood Elf, although this is not necessary since most of them do not use their last names. A good clan name should greatly represent the culture and attitude of the populace belonging to that clan. For easier access to a list of ready-made suggested clan names, our Bosmer Name Generator can help players for free.
