I just wanted to share this with everyone. I'm sure everybody has played a game and tried coming up with a good name for a character, but they can't think of one. Well, I've compiled a list of various cool names from obscure sources, such as NPC characters from old games, ancient mythological beings, among others.

It's probably best for MMORPGs, a fantasy universe, aliens, etc.

I'd like to give it a test drive. Give it a go, post the name it gives you, and tell me what you think of it (its possible to repeat the name generation if you don't like the result):

Also, it's only male names for now. I will add a female option later.

Periphery, love that shit!

Thinking of a name is consistently the single most frustrating thing about RPGs. After an hour I finally make up something awesome, only to find that some douche-canoe already picked it.

My real name gives me Jormungand
My forum name gives me Barbatos
My Minecraft name gives me Lethvalin, which is pretty close to Leviathan, so I'll take it.
My usual RPG name gives me Vittorio

Pretty cool thing.

Exactly. That's why I created this generator. I'm always envious of people with really cool names, so I thought it might be cool to make something like this.

I plan on adding thousands of names if possible, just to decrease the chance of someone else having a name someone ends up with. There are a couple of names I've used from the list that I've yet to see others use, in fact.

douche-canoe was the best name you could think of after an hour!?

No, that was the name I had to settle on after Flustercucker was already taken.

Thomas - Thorgas.

That's pretty cool. I could see it come in handy. Good job.
Signatures are stupid.

First name I got Gyldenholt.
Last name I got Tzitzimime.
Forum name I got Callicantzaros.

I think I might actually use Gyldenholt on LOTRO now

Paul results in Chezarul.

A bit sexist this generator though isn't it?


Perhaps. The list was originally a text file of names I had compiled for personal use, thus the male-only nature of its current state.

Soon I will have a comparable list of female names as well. I may end up calling this current list "Male/Gender Neutral" and then have a "Female" list.

Thanks all and double welcome.

One trick that sometimes works is if you have a name that you like and want something similar, you can put it through the generator. However, sometimes the name you put in won't be very close to anything, so it might give you the closest thing or just something random.

It depends on the names you put in. I guess you had a poor draw.

Cacus? What?


That's... huh. Not sure how that one got in there. Doesn't sound like one I'd approve.
