    Title. Working on a Starbound-based D&D campaign and could use some names for each of the races (i.e.: Terran named Jeff).

    For Apex names, you could use planet of the apes names: Dr. Zaius, Cornelius, Zira, Charlton Heston...

    could also be worth just checking out the character creation menu in game and rolling random names, unless you want more distinct ones

    Honestly, for my fanfics I just boot up the game, go into character creation, and use the built-in name generator.

    Floran, Apex, and Avians all draw from a name source file in packed/names- tribal, russian (male, female and surnames), and aztec respectively. Those would be great places to draw inspiration from for those races' names.
