Name Generators

Post by Call Me Nefret on Tue Mar 22, 2016 12:25 pm

Since names are such a huge deal for me, I have several different sites I go to for new names. Most of them are historical or fantasy (perfect for our cabin).

Behind the Name
behindthename.com/random/

This site offers a lot of historical names, giving you the name's origin and/or meaning. It gives a bit less in the way of options, but it easy to use.

Fantasy Name Generator
fantasynamegenerators.com/

SO MANY FANTASY NAMES. It's also super helpful with fanfiction, as it has sections for canon names like Harry Potter or How To Train Your Dragon. There are even sections for real names, animal names (including dragons), and place names. While there are a lot of options, it only generates 10 names at a time in any category, so you sometimes end up clicking a lot.

20000 Names
20000-names.com

This is one of my favorites when I'm looking for a name that means something specific. When you search by meaning, you get a lot of weird, hard to pronounce names. But when you're writing fantasy, that can be a boon.

These are useful. I love using behindthename.com Smile
I have a document with links to historical names like franco-norman, old German, celtic, viking period etc. I might put it up into the resources section if someone would like me to and when I have time to organize the document.

This is great Very Happy Thanks. I've since renamed my main character to something more 'Phoenixy' (Lumina!)
