This is a list of all the known Argonian names, compiled from the games.


[edit] Naming convention

There are three types of Argonian names.

  • 1-word names
  • Hyphenated Argonian names (sometimes the hyphen(s) are omitted)
  • Tamrielic/Cyrodilic names, with or without hyphens

Argonians often refer to their non-Cyrodilic names as their "Black Marsh name."

In some cases, the Cyrodilic names are just translations of their Argonian hyphenated names. There are only two cases where we know both the Argonian and Cyrodilic names of a single individual, "Haj-Ei" ("Hides-His-Eyes") found in Suran, and "Gah Julan" ("Great Benefit") outside of Dren Plantation, both in Morrowind. In other cases, the Argonians were evidently given Cyrodilic names without any consideration for their Argonian names. The Cyrodilic name may be used preferentially when the person's Argonian name cannot be pronounced by non-Argonians.

  'J'Ram-Dar' fits the construction of a Khajiiti name moreso than Argonian. Whether this was a mistake or whether he was intended to have some back-story for this uncharacteristic name is impossible to guess, but the former is more likely given how inconsequential this character is in the game.
