Gajam
Gajabular
Kaba'zua

Undead:
Sekrados
Desmoras
Norinas

If you havent already, try a google on name generators. You can usualy find a few dozen sites that do just that, and many are geared towards D&D type names for many races.

A couple I have used are as follows (all have some greek/norse meaning):
Itzal for a Rogue
Honir for a random toon I made when I wasnt sure what to play.
Heulwen A welsh name for my new hunter, named after my dog (meanign wise).

Ithaelus
Kaelthalas

Orc:

- Orc names tend start with constants such "M" "K" etc. - Mankrik, Thrall etc.

Tauren:

- For Tauren look at American Indian names, in particular Plains tribes like the Cheyenne, Lakota, etc.

Troll:
Gajam
Gajabular
Kaba'zua

- Names that start with G, and Z are popular for Trolls: Zul'jin, Zalazane

Undead:
Sekrados
Desmoras
Norinas

-Undead can use Human type names as they were once human (or some cases High Elven names)

Draenei:
Apolon

Human:
Lechdan

Easy way to generate human names is take a standard English name and add an addtional Letter or change a lettter (Marcus -> Markus)

Gnome:
Fizzlemazzjigglecogwheel

Dwarf:
Aggranor

- Hard constants in groups "Kh" are common in Dwarf names -

Night Elf:
Illirath
Dylvania

- Night Elf names commonly start with vowels or soft constants like "M" -

Take a run around the world or read the background story and note the naming patterns for races. You can get a lot of solid ideas. There used be a wonderful HOWTO name your character on the US WoW forums, but that seems to have been lost.

it's best to find something thematically appropriate, as Xinh suggested. Here are some examples that I've gone by:

-Night & Blood Elf: I try to go with names that either have a smooth, lyrical quality about them (i.e. Sarouuthel, Aliestras) or a pair of words that could describe the character in some fashion (Goldeneye, Shadowhawk, Songheart) Usually for blood elves I look for a slightly darker sound, or something that sounds slightly more "civilized" than a name I would give a night elf
-Undead: Either the same naming convention you would use for a human, or one word that might sum up the character (i.e. Basher, Claw, Meat) as perhaps some undead would no longer prefer their given human name
-Orc: Harsh sounding names with a fair amount of connsonants. Think klingon, or perhaps something you'd imagine one of Jabba the Hutt's bodygaurds might be named (Malathok, Nargesh, Dal'Na'Tok)
-Troll: Similar to orc, but a bit smoother (Zaalrush, Oushaan, Jak'anth)
-Gnome: Bunch of techincal words cobbled together, just like Xinh suggested
-Dwarf: Think scottish or russian. (Dougan, Ivesk, Maceddon)
-Tauren: Something appropriately tribal and mystic. I don't have any good examples on this one
-Dranei: I like to take liberties with demonic or alien sounding names with this one (Daegon, Tsolaris, Yogsogeth, Amion)

Gargoyle name Suggestions?

I'm in a Harry Potter roleplay and I just thought adding a Gargoyle would make it a little more interesting, the only problem is, I can't come up with a name...Any suggestions?...
