The Everchanging Book of Names, although last I checked you need to pay to use the full version.

Also, I've found that a lot of generic (non-FR specific) elven name generators can be helpful, and can serve as inspiration even if you don't care for the actual names that get churned out.

You could try Kuje's NPC lists for some quick elven names.

BTW... Judging from your username, would I be correct in assuming you're a Speedball 2 fan?

Well, there are tons of free generators out there. It's just that the only one I know of that is FR specific is not free (although you can use a "shortened" version of it for free).

The source names in the EBoN chapters are accurate but far from up-to-date, but still give good output, though the elven chapters would benefit much more from updating than the human ones because they have smaller pools.

Trust me here!

Just mix some random letters (enough so you have too many syllables). Throw in an apostrophe or two and you're done

If I waited till I knew what I was doing, I'd never get anything done.

well we could try and get someone to write a new name generator that is for DnD in general or just the FR.

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power

I know this topic has gathered some dust, but if anyone still needs a good elven name generator, check out this one.

http://www.rdinn.com/generators/2/elven_name_generator.php

It creates both male and femals given names, as well as surnames. All told, there are a few billion combinations possible... you ought to be able to find one or two that you like.

There's also a decent name generator table in Races of the Wild.

-Note, none of that is Forgotten Realms canon. For those who are keeping track.

Likewise, there's a static list on this very site, SuperNashwan:
http://www.candlekeep.com/library/articles/elven_names.htm

Pathfinder Rules + FR 1st Ed-3.5E Setting = Win
One usually has far more to fear from the soft-spoken wizard with a blade and well-worn boots than from the boisterous one in the ivory tower.
