In the Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying game, a genasi is a human with elemental heritage. There are four different types of genasi: earth, fire, air and water. Water genasi names can help you live to 100 because they have strong ties to the element that governs longevity. The name of a water genasi is usually drawn from the Arabic word for “water”.
In this blog post we’ll look at some great examples of Water Genasi names.
Mina: This beautiful and feminine name means ‘lovely’ or ‘pretty’. The best example of a Mina in folklore is probably Princess Mína, an important character in ancient Irish mythology. Her mother was the famous fairy queen Eithne who had to disguise herself as a mortal woman after she fell pregnant with her daughter because it was forbidden for fairies to have children with mortals. Mína’s father might be either Cormac mac Airt – one of Ireland’s most famous High Kings – or Fionn mac Cumhaill, one of Ireland’s most famous warriors and hero.
Zulaika: This name is a Arabic word for ‘morning’. The best example of Zulaika in folklore can be found in the early Islamic text “One Thousand and One Nights”. In it there was a king who dreamed that his third wife would kill him. Worried about this dream he consulted an old woman skilled in interpreting dreams; she told him not to worry because ‘zulayka’ means morning so her murder will come after midnight!

What if I told you that each name has a meaning? You know how parents sometimes give kids names like Faith, Hope and Grace because they want those values to live on? Well, genasi are the same way. They believe in balance between all elements of the natural world so every person’s name is made up of two parts: one from their elemental water ancestor (like underwater) and one from an element that complements it (like air). If your ancestors couldn’t decide what kind of genasi you were going to be then they split your parentage down the middle with half-and-half power. As long as both halves have some clout in society people will respect you for being “balanced”
