Medieval Title and Naming Suggestions
Before the Persons name you can put their title. Some examples:
You can also append to the name of the person and there were two usual ways to do this: By the place they came from or a characteristic about them
Of course you can combine these two techniques and create the name with a suffix and a prefix

Suggestions and tips for Names of other races in your game
So you are looking for a name for your character in a video games? One of the best things about doing this is that these types of characters lend themselves really nicely to unique names that still have a flavor for the race. Here are some examples:
Dwarves: There are lots of great things you can do with dwarf names that express their uniqueness. Use words like: stone, iron, rock, boulder, earth, shield, mace, helm, stocky, solid, short, fist, shovel, dig, mine, or any kind of mineral. Dwarves have the traditional reputation of being short, having beards and being miners so you can use anything that shows this in the name. Here are some dwarf name examples:
And Dwarf names really sound great when they are longer. For example: Stoneshield Littledigger is a great name. Or Silverbeard Ironmace.
If you are looking for a dwarf name that is not a word but still sounds dwarfish consider using some of the hard consonants like R and K.
Elves: Now elves have a totally different look and feel which lends itself to some great elven names. You should think about their slender tall bodies and translate this into words. Use the softer consonants and mix it up with nature type words.
Orcs: Orcs have a very guttural language and of course that means their names will be very guttural. Here are a couple of suggestions by a web visitor (Zak).
