How are orcs named?

Orc family names are usually (but not always) prefixed depending on gender: “gro-” for males, and “gra-” for females. (In a few cases in Morrowind, there are male Orcs with the feminine “gra-” prefix, or a third prefix “gor-“; and in Online female Orcs with the male “gro-” prefix. )

Do orcs have surnames?

Orc names are strong and guttural sounding, with female names being slightly more melodic. They don’t have surnames, but do use epithets like “Knee Smasher” and “The Behemoth”.

Are all Orcs evil?

In Tolkien’s works, Orcs are a brutish, aggressive, ugly, and malevolent race of monsters, contrasting with the benevolent Elves and serving an evil power, though they share a human sense of morality. There is a suggestion, among several somewhat contradictory origin stories, that they are a corrupted race of elves.

What does Gro mean Orc?

Known Orcish names consist of the Orc’s own name, followed by gro-Father or gra-Mother, depending on the Orc’s gender.

Do orcs grow hair?

Half-orc hair is usually black, dark brown, or dark blue, but occasionally takes on lighter shades found among humans. Some half-orcs grow facial hair, others do not. If a half-orc does grow it and lives among orcs, they rarely bother to groom or otherwise maintain it.

While there was no mention of female Orcs in any of the books, Tolkien did later say that they did exist. We see proof of offsping as Gollum devours a young Orc child in The Hobbit. As disturbing as the thought might be, in the Silmarillion it is said that Orcs “breed after the manner of Elves and Men”.

How are half Orcs named?

Half-orcs usually have names appropriate to the culture in which they were raised. A half-orc who wants to fit in among humans might trade an orc name for a human name. Some half-orcs with human names decide to adopt a guttural orc name because they think it makes them more intimidating.

Do Orcs hate Nords?

The Orsimer seem to generally segregate themselves, and I don’t see any tension between those two races. In fact, their cultures seem to blend well when they come into contact with each other. They don’t particularly like them. Nor does anyone, really.
