This name generator will send you 15 random names for satyrs that are part of Narnia universe Chronicles. Satyrs are humanoid, bipedal goats similar to fauns, but with more goat-like characteristics, obviously. They are wilder than their faun cousins, but they share the love of song and dance. As most other animals, satyrs are different indicating their personalities and allegiances. Some are fighting for good, some are fighting for evil and some are not fighting at all. Satyr names seem to be influenced more by Roman names. They are very similar to minotaur names, you may argue that they are the same as there are only a handful of recognized names of each species and thus not enough to say whether any variations exist. The names in this generator will be Roman-esque and suit the general themes of the names of the satyrs in Narnia either way.

Satyrs have long been a staple of literature, from Greek mythology to early modern poetry. Satyrs in Greek mythology were often portrayed as female demons disguised as satyr women, sometimes even as goddesses. The name of a popular satyr is Faun, which means "deer-headed". Satyr women are not usually associated with the animals that satyr worship: in Greek mythology they are usually associated with lust and male sexuality, which are an important part of their worship. Their erotic costumes, including a satyr's skin painted red, have been used throughout literature as part of the story, as well.
The Chronicles of Narnia, and other children's books, feature satyr characters. Faun, a character in the first book, The Chronicles of Narnia, is a female satyr that was once a nymph and queen of the woods. Gnostic satyr of both sexes appear in Umberto Ecara's Baudolio. Faun is the wife of King Lusius, and a main character in the second book in the series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Faun appears at the beginning of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and also appears in two other books in Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia story, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and The Chronicles of Thomas Jefferson.
The name, Faun, derives from a Latin word that means "deer-headed". Other satyr names are also based on the same Latin word, such as Caunus (The Creeper) and Aeneas (The Saviour). Some satyr names are taken from other languages, including Welsh and Latin. Some of the satyr names of classical mythology may be translated into other languages for the purpose of making the satyr more readily identifiable, while others may reflect the characteristics and features of the satyr itself. For example, in Greek mythology, satyr was a creature with one horn and no face. In Roman mythology, satyr was the son of Eris, and the attendant of Priam.
