Vedalken is a unique race of highly intelligent humanoids who prefer discussions and the exchange of ideas. This reminds us of the Tabaxis who like to explore and learn about the world. However, the Vedalken is quite odd compared to the Tabaxis. They are the type of people who strive for perfection, while at the same time, believes it can never be attained. But hey, they consider this a good motivation anyway. The idea of striving for perfection, despite considering it to be unattainable, makes the Vedalken excited and enthusiastic about any opportunity for improvement.

Vedalken is often seen as cold or emotionless by other races. They tend to be so serious when talking, pointing only straight to facts without a trace of humor in it. But engage with them the right way, you’ll find a talkative and active Vedalken. Moreover, Vedalken also feels every bit of emotion as all other creature does. They are just skilled in hiding or suppressing emotions especially if unnecessary. So, branding them as cold-hearted or emotionless is a bit unfair for them.
What makes them unique are their secretive personalities. They prefer to talk and engage about other topics and will not wish to share their personal lives (thus, the cold treatment). They consider friendship not because of personal ties, but for the nice mutual interests or compromised disagreements. They would rather discuss factual opinions about a certain topic instead of sharing their feelings about it.
Vedalken’s curious and intellectual minds attract them to become members of either the Azorius Senate, the Simic Combine, or the Izzet League.

Vedalken believes that perfection can be attained through education, deliberation, and experimentation. Although they also consider the path to perfection as something impossible to achieve. Because of this, most Vedalken is obsessed with perfecting themselves, whether through Simic bioengineering or doing extensive studies. Others focus on creating a perfect society by drafting laws and plans.

Top Vedalken Names Suggestions
We’re down to the last part of this name guide. As a finale, we’ll give you a list of our Top 10 Best Vedalken names based on our earlier name suggestions for male and female Vedalken. Our selection is weighed depending on how the name sounds in a “Vedalken” sense, how the background meaning or story fits well with the race, and of course some personal biases from the names that we want to see in any D&D game.
Earning our Top 1 spot is the name Suvethi. The name gives us a good impression of a Vedalken name and at the same time, we like the background lore about a dedicated Vedalken who wishes to cure diseases despite unethical means of experimenting with the dead.
The Vedalken name ‘Rievan’ sounds like a character who is wise and knowledgeable. We are placing it on the second spot for this reason while at the same time, we like the idea of a Vedalken who is obsessed with languages the world has to offer.
The name represents determination and passion. Dymrel gives off a good Vedalken sound for a name. The lore is also interesting, describing Dymrel as a character who gets overly excited about new ideas and things.
This female Vedalken name describes a Vedalken that is involved with politics. Not just a simple female individual involved with lowly politics, but a person involved with policymaking and lawmaking. We are placing this name on the 4th spot for the awesome lore and nice name tone.
Nedir the Triton Seeker earns our 5th spot for this list. The name sounds Vedalken-like, although not as attractive as the first names above. We love the idea of having a Vedalken obsessed with writing down histories of the Triton. Tritons are rare and not well-known and some even consider them as myths or legends.
This name is our favorite pick for this list. Altyn sounds simple and straightforward. It gives off a nice ring when pronounced. The background lore is also interesting, describing a Vedalken who prefers facts to hearsays.
First off, Izereth sounds very Vedalken-like. Second, we like the background story of a Vedalken who experiments (secretly) on the soldiers in the hopes of creating an elite army. While, again, this may sound unethical because the soldiers are unaware that they are being experimented on, this will prove to benefit the kingdom if the results are successful.
The name Ovalan also gives us a good tone for a Vedalken name. Additionally, the lore surrounding Ovalan is about him being an intelligent strategist. Most Vedalken do not involve themselves with warfare, but not Ovalan. We are placing his name on the 8th spot for these reasons.
Just like Yavriya, Fiolmar is a male version of a Vedalken involved with politics. The name is not much Vedalken but it still has a nice ring in it. Additionally, the idea of having a Vedalken who imposes equality on the state is quite awesome.
Lastly, also one of our favorites is the name Akko. The name is quite simple and sounds like a female Vedalken. The background lore about being obsessed with the knowledge of beauty is an additional point too.
