Kanjite Names

From World of Charun



The Kanjite use the same names for both genders. Names, much like their society, is strictly divided into the caste system. You will find each name in the list marked with a (V), (H), (I) or (A).

  • (V) = Names used by the Vipra, which is the priest caste. They use only a first name.
  • (H) = Names used by the Hatriya, the warrior and ruling caste. They have a first name, as well as a lastname (picked from the same list)
  • (I) = Names used by the Ishya, the artisan, magician and soldier caste. They use only one name, along with their profession as their last name. Example: Hakesh Blacksmith.
  • (A) = Names used by both the Ashudra, the agricultural, hunter and labour caste, as well as the Adava, the casteless ones. They use only a first name.
