In the world of Dungeons and Dragons, there exist a humanoid race that greatly resembles the strong and clever elephants. We’ve seen Lizard-like and Cat-like folks from other fantasy games (including DnD) and we thought these characters are unique and awesome.
But D&D 5e expound further on the possibilities of other races, one such as the Loxodon. Loxodons are elephant-like humanoids introduced from the Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica gamebook. They resemble the elephants physically, with their heads composed of a trunk, tusks, spanning ears, and leathery skins. They have bipedal bodies and four thick fingers, while their feet are flat-bottomed just like a common elephant foot.

In this guide, we’ll discuss brief descriptions and traits of the Loxodons. You’ll be introduced to a list of our DnD 5e Best Male and Female Loxodon Names, a list of Class-Specific Loxodon Names, and a list of Funny Loxodon Names. At the end of this guide is a ranking of our Top Loxodon Name Suggestions for DnD.

Selfless Artistic Giants

Loxodons have a towering height of over seven feet. They are bulkier than common humans, making them a bit slower in movement. Loxodons are a peaceful group of humanoids who value community and life. Despite this serene nature, they can still be a threat against those who provoke them to action. They are fierce and powerful in battle and can focus their rage in dealing heavy blows.

Loxodons are born for craftsmanship and art. They are tireless and patient in doing specific crafts such as stonework carvings and artistic designs on buildings. Their gift of stonework and crafts made them primary builders and designers of magnificent cathedral-like structures throughout the continent.

Loxodons value life and peace over wars and chaos. They believe that each member of a group is responsible for taking care of each other. When Loxodons participate in guilds or join a band of adventurers, they tend to devote themselves to the group by protecting it with their lives. They may even sacrifice themselves for the sake of the group. In turn, they expected the same loyalty and commitment from other members. They may feel a great burden of disappointment if their trust and loyalty are betrayed.

Loxodon Names

Loxodon’s name has delicate tones and syllables that are produced from the Loxodon’s nasal chambers. Their names indicate status, family connections, and community roles. However, most non-Loxodons cannot distinguish these tones, or produce them (they can never call a Loxodon’s name because they can’t produce the tone!). So, Loxodons translates them into titles such as Hierarch, Revered, Grandmother, Healer, or Saint, and many more when interacting with other races. Loxodon names have distinctions for males and females.

Class-Specific Names for Loxodon

As some people may say, selecting your race is just a backbone on the totality of your Dungeons and Dragons character. Part of it is selecting a class for them. DnD 5e offers a variety of classes that players can choose from as part of character creation. In this section, we’ll create few suggested names for two specific classes for the Loxodons: The Monk class and the Paladin class.

The Loxodon Monk

We know monks are associated with the magical energy called Ki. Ki is channeled through the body by constant meditations and practice. Loxodons are good candidates for the Monk class because of their calm and serene nature. Added to it are the Monk traits that will specifically benefit a Loxodon character such as; bonuses gained from Unarmored Defense and Natural Armor; bonus speed from Unarmored Movement; and Extra Attacks. There are other traits that players can explore further for their Loxodon character. In the meantime, check out some of our suggested DnD 5e Loxodon Monk names below.

Paladins are the warriors of justice and righteousness. They always side with the good and will choose to fight evil whenever they get a chance.

We will rank all the suggested names from the earlier segments of this guide (male and female combined) and give a brief suggestion of what particular class you can use such names. We based the rankings on how relevant are the names in terms of lore and how it sounds in a Loxodon sense. Check them out below.

Rank
Name
Gender
Class
Description

1

Dolrem

/dol-rem/

Male

Paladin

Cleric

The simplicity and the tone of this name made this on the top spot for this list. Although the background lore is a bit basic. We can also consider this name for the Cleric class.

2

Svaal

/is-va-al/

Male

Paladin

Fighter

Barbarian

This Loxodon name is for gallant and heroic characters. We can consider this name for a Paladin, Fighter, or a Barbarian aligned with lawful good since we are talking about a character who favors heroism over glories and slaughter. The name sounds Loxodon and we wish to see this name in actual game scenarios.

3

Zoachi

/zo-a-ki/

Female

Paladin

Cleric

This name means ‘Faithful’ in the Common tongue. The name itself sounds Loxodon and gives us a good appeal for the character. We also like the idea of a prudent Loxodon who fights for the weak and oppressed. She sounds very selfless, indeed!

4

Nafya

/naf-ya/

Female

Paladin

Cleric

Ranger

Druid

Nafya the Keeper earned our 4th spot for this list. We’ll start on the possible classes. We can consider her name for the Paladin, Clerics, Rangers, and Druid because these are the classes that are possible to have roles as ‘Keepers’. (e.g., Keeper of the Forest for a Ranger, Keeper of the Citadel for a Cleric, etc.) Additionally, the name sounds Loxodon and gives us a nice impression of the character bearing this name.

5

Haldon

/hal-don/

Male

Paladin

Cleric

This name is for Loxodon characters who want fairness and equality. It’s almost the same as wanting to serve justice for the oppressed. We love this idea of a justice-seeking Loxodon who opposes the abusive status quo in a society. The name also sounds very Loxodon, so that’s an additional point for this name.

6

Kval

/kwal/

Male

Barbarian

Paladin

This name means ‘The Force’. Not on Star Wars, but a mighty force feared on the battlefield. For this reason, a Barbarian class may be considered, although the Paladin class is also a nice choice. We think this name deserves the 6th spot for this list (or even better).

7

Savri

/saw-ri/

Female

Barbarian

Monk

Paladin

Fighter

Fighting is the core attitude of Savri. Therefore, this name is befitting for a class that centers on fighting such as the Barbarian, Monk, Paladin, and Fighter. Not to mention, the name refers to a ‘Behemoth’, so yes, she is devastating. The name sounds Loxodon but the suggested names above sound much better. We think it deserves at least the 7th spot for this list.

8

Vesolna

Female

Paladin

Fighter

Barbarian

Ranger

This name suggests a Loxodon who belongs to a questing brigade. Although they like doing favors at the cost of gold pieces. But at least the evil threats are exterminated, right? Anyway, we find this name fitting for a Paladin, a Fighter, a Barbarian, and even a Ranger because of this bounty hunting and questing line of work.

9

Malayva

/ma-lay-va/

Female

Monk

Fighter

Barbarian

Close-quarter combat is the keyword for this name. You become a fighter that uses your Ki to close the gap between you and your opponent. Pretty cool use of Ki, I know. But we can always expand our imagination regarding this name into considering it for a Fighter or a Barbarian class—who also prefer close-quarter combats. Let’s also not forget that the name sounds Loxodon and cool.

10

Shaju

/sha-ju/

Female

Fighter

Paladin

Barbarian

Last but not the least, the Sword Wielding Loxodon. We love the idea of a Loxodon who’s so proficient with swords to the point she can outmatch an elf. Wow. The name also sounds nice for a Loxodon name so we think this name deserves a spot on the list.

We also have other race-specific names aside from the Loxodon. Visit our D&D 5e Name Generator for more details. It’s easy to use and free. Try it for yourself!
