Dunmer Names

The cursed Chimer people from the Summerset Isles, Dunmers are close cousins of the Altmers. Chimers’ physique is indistinguishable from Altmer aside from their pale gold skin. Their belief is probably what makes them unique from the rest of their elven kin: worship of Daedric gods.

Talk about weird people, Chimers are even proud of the curse they received from a Daedric goddess transforming their gold skin into ashen color and their eyes red. They are now called by their elven brethren as Dunmers or Dark elves. Dunmers are a versatile, offensive race in-game with good attributes in dual-wielding, magic, and spells- a good pick for players who dislike offsets with other attributes (eew, casuals).

In this guide, we will explore a brief history of the Dunmers, their culture, and their characteristics. We’ll create Dunmer names and provide a list of our Top 10 Male and Female Dunmer name picks. Moreover, we’ll list the Top 10 Dunmer Clan names and a bonus Top 10 Funny Dunmer names.

There’s also a ranking for the Top 10 Best Dunmer names at the end of this guide. You may also check out this ESO Dunmer Name Generator for more name suggestions.

Without further delays, let’s get started!

Red-Eyes Black Dunmers

No this is not Yu-Gi-Oh, but Dunmers display both red-eyes and dark skin color features. The early Chimer race migrated out of Summerset Isle in search of freedom for their belief. As we always know, the Altmer religion centralizes in the worship of Aedric gods. In contrast, Chimers are Daedric believers. They followed Veloth, a prophet to whom the Daedric prince Boethiah spoke with, unto migration to Resdayn (known now as Morrowind) for religious freedom.

Resdayn, during that time, is currently inhabited by the Dwemers (dwarf people) who have an agnostic culture. They encountered conflicts and done war with the Dwemers until they faced territorial threats from the Nords. To cut the story short, the Chimers and Dwemers combined forces in fighting the invading Nords and their noble kings became allies under an exclusive pact. However, conflict arose from both kings leading to Chimer’s invasion of the Dwemers. The Chimer discovered the source of the immortality of the Dwemers: the heart of Lorkhan. They were able to secure the tools to strike the heart thus erasing the entire Dwemer race from its existence.

The Tribunal, consultants of the Chimer king, murdered their king and took the tools, and used the heart to make themselves gods. The Daedric goddess Azura was angered by this atrocity and cursed the entire Chimer race by making their skin ashen and their eyes red, creating the earliest known Dunmers.

Phew! So much for the Dunmer history. Dunmers are intellectual and strong elves. They are great warriors and sorcerers wielding swords, daggers, and destruction magic. It is said that Dunmers can live thrice as long as humans.
In character, Dunmers are gloomy, aloof, and self-reserved. They are known distrustful with the other race and in return are distrusted too.

Due to their vengeful nature, resulting from the age-conflicts and betrayal feeling from their old Dwemer allies, they have very low political influence and trust compared to their Altmer cousins.
