This name generator will send you 15 random names of Balrog that are fit for the Lord of the Rings. Balrogs, also known as the Valaraukar, are beings which once were Maiar, but were corrupted and seduced into serving Melkor. Melkor was finally defeated, however, and the Balrogs were left to do their own bidding. Many of them went to Angband, Melkor 's ancient fortress under the Iron Mountains. As far as the names of Balrog go, there is only one known person: Gothmog. There's also "Durin's Bane" but that's not much of a name, if anything, it's more of a title. So we used the word 'Gothmog' as an inspiration for the names in this generator, all of which will follow the same darker and larger tones but mixed in here and there with a little variance.

A Balrog is an incredibly strong fictional creature in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth. It first appears in print in his fantasy book, The Lord of The Rings, in which the Fellowship of the ring find one called Durin's Bane at the mines of Moria in Mordor. After the fall of Sauron and the rise of Gondorian rule, the Balrog of Mordor were eventually driven from the world by the armies of Gandalf, who took the role of its leader. Though the creature remained a part of the tale, it was never as prominent a threat to Frodo and Samwise as the other evil creatures who had their own storylines. Eventually, the presence of a Balrog at the Mines of Moria drove the hobbits to join together to defeat the dreaded enemy. However, after the battle ended the hobbits returned and the Balrog was not seen again until the climactic Battle of the Pelennor Fields when the Fellowship is fighting off the forces of Mordor.
This article aims to describe the character of a Balrog in all its glory, so that any newcomer to Middle Earth will be able to appreciate what a formidable creature it is and how it changes the perspective of both Gandalf and Frodo Baggins. In the first installment, The Fellowship of the Ring, we are introduced to the Balrog at the Mines of Moria and its role in the events of the book. For the next three books, Bilbo Baggins takes the lead role of fighting the monster, although in several cases the presence of other characters also change the perspective of Bilbo's character, sometimes making him the villain in some instances.
The first mention of a Balrog in this article can be found in The Book of Lost Tales (1911), an English translation of a German text about the Morgul Empire, the predecessor of Mordor, in the Middle East. In this version the monster is referred to as "the mighty Balrog of Khazad-dûm"the giant-like Balrog". The author of this book is not credited, and the only reference is made to the name of this particular Balrog, but we may assume that it has some similarity with the Balrog that appeared in Peter Jackson's The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. However, no further mention is made in The Book of Lost Tales of this monster or even of its appearance at the Mines of Moria in the novel.
