This name generator will send you 15 random names for the kandra portion of the cosmere universes of Brandon Sanderson. Kandra is a species with shapeshift abilities and was developed by the Lord Ruler during his Ascension. Their natural form is a shapeless glob, but they may use other beings' bodies (usually by digesting it) to change into that being's shape. Many kandras also have a True Body, a body made for them by an artisan kandra. This body is a structure of false bones, mostly composed of quartz. Many kandra with a True Body would ensure that their skin is transparent so that the quartz can shine through it. Kandra names are relatively straightforward and sound sweet. Names include TenSoon, HunFoor, MeLaan, Tarkavv, Haddek and Paalm. The last two are different from the standard naming convention, but I have included those naming forms in this generator.

The Kandra is an elite group of warriors, servants of the Mistborn civilization. They were once sworn to protect the Mistings from the forces of chaos and evil. In exchange for contracts to do this they were charged with the duty of collecting harvested Atium from the Kandra. This Atium is then transported to the Mistborn Homeland and sealed within a pit with an iron lid. They wear special armor designed to protect their bodies against the effects of negative energy such as lightning, heat, cold, and other negative energies. This armor also allows them to resist poison and acid.
The Kandra is the most powerful and intelligent of the Mistborn, which is probably why they have such a high demand among the Mistborn themselves. Kandra Mistborn are considered to be some of the most difficult to make into Mistings, as they are so highly specialized that almost any person who tries can fail miserably. However, because of their intellect and their skills, Kandra are able to become Mistings. It is believed that if one Kandra Mistborn tries to become a Mistborn without proper training in the use of the powers, they could fail horribly and end up being imprisoned by the society itself.
The only known Kandra Mistborn of all the other Mistborn that were made to be Mistings was Kaladin Stormblessed, a Highprince of War. He was the one that brought the Kandra to Kholinar so that they could become Mistings there. Although Kaladin was not actually able to fulfill his promise, he did manage to become a Kandra and to become an honor guard for the king himself. He became known as the Red Shirt because of the red cloth that he wore on his clothing.
