    So far, I've discovered a couple of nice combinations for cultures and languages, that work suprisingly well.

    Wood Elves = Scandinavian
    Dark Elves = Japanese
    Gnomes = Gaelic
    Northern Humans = Finish/Estonian/Hungarian
    Demons = Ancient Egyptian
    And I think the Vandren might work quite well with South Slavic names.

    Once you know what it's supposed to sound like, its easier to make names.

    Edit: The compiled list of example names, as I have it now:

    There's a shortage of wood elf female name, and an unfortunate total absense of Kaas names. If you have any idea that don't sound like Klingons or orcs, let me know.
