Fantasy Name Generator

By Samuel Stoddard - Version 1.5

One of the perks of creating fantasy stories -- whether by writing a story or game or by role-playing -- is you get to make up the names. Some people relish the task while others are frustrated by it. Some like it but can't seem to create names that are diverse enough. Fantasy Name Generator is a tool that can help you. It can generate an endless number of random names (of people, places, or anything) that would be suitable for use in a fantasy setting. It can generate names on its own, or you can tell it what kind of name you're looking for. Feel free to use this tool and any name that comes out of it (assuming it doesn't accidentally generate a legally protected trademark or something).

In addition, this tool can be fairly amusing to use even if you don't have any name creating to do. Once in a while, the names it can generate are downright comical.

You can use the fantasy name generator below. Here's instructions for using the generator. You can also read about the history of the name generator, which discusses name generators in general and how I came to write this one.

Select what kind of name you'd like to generate, then hit the Generate Names button. That's it!

This name generation form is almost limitless in its flexibility, but you'll have to read the instructions to learn how to use it, as it's somewhat involved. Or, if you just need a reminder, check out the quick reference guide.
