Fritz Leiber's "Lankhmar" Character names list 2

Here is a list of character names from Fritz Leiber's "Lankhmar" or "Fafhrd & Gray Mouser" stories. Hopefully these will be helpful for anyone running an Astonishing Swordsman & Sorcerers of Hyberborea or similar fantasy campaign (or even a "Lankhmar" campaign).

I urge anyone who has not read Leiber's "Lankhmar" stories to read them and anyone who has read them to re-read them.

  1. In today's fantasy lit genre those would be corny names, but for that era those seem just right.

  2. Leiber had a great talent for names. They seem purely manufactured for the story (though I don't know how he actually chose or created them) but they fit perfectly without being ridiculous or ringing false. His 'Fafhrd and Gray Mouser' stories are a bit tongue in cheek, definitely humorous, but still compelling fantasy adventures, much in the same way that the best AD&D adventures played out at the table.
