Bolkarl Axeshield here, are you tired of having to choose between dual wielding axes and having an axe and a shield? Well don't waste time that could be spent killing Elves any longer by coming to Bolkarl's Axeshield emporium! We've combined the best of axe and shield for your killing needs at prices so low I must be completely hammered to sell them, but no, I'm only moderately hammered during business hours. So come on down to Bolkarl's Axeshield Emporium right between Kilgore's knitting goods and Crushhammer's Smokehouse! Get here in the next fifteen minutes and I'll give you a ten percent discount!

Not bad.

Dwarves are good because they're consistent enough that this sort of name generator works - everyone knows what a fantasy dwarf is, more or less - but they cover enough ground that there's a range of characters they do well (and most of those call in more general archetypes/stereotypes that are familiar even outside of fantasy)

be me, Reinkon Goldshield
family is laughingstock of the eight dwarven kingdoms
armorsmith, like my father and his father and his father, etc
family specializes in making ornate if impractical gilded armors that are a gorgeous splendor to behold
because of this, we were "invited to live amongst" elves generations ago, and work for them for lodging and food alone, and no pay
tfw not any good at my family's style of forging
only good at making steel weapons that tear through elvish adornments like butter

Maybe if I escape and head to our ancestral lands and don't tell anyone my name, I can set up as a proper smithy.

Dwarves are good because they're an actual fantasy race. They're not "Real Life Culture X, But With Magic", they're something that genuinely doesn't exist on Earth, but which is logically consistent and fits with the typical Tolkein setting.

They're the only typical fantasy race that actually feels fantastical.
