I thought I would share this sight. It is one of the biggest and best compilations of random name generators I have ever found on the internet.

This place is great for just plain creating names. It has a ton of random fantasy name generators; real world name generators across an incredible number of countries and cultures, ancient and modern; generators for different types of places you might encounter like planets or cliffs & fjords; random categories of other things you might need names for like mascots or board games or graffiti tags or poisons or political parties; pop culture franchise generators and these are further divided into appropriate race categories as the franchise needs (for example the Mass Effect one has separate generators for the different races as a pull down menu); it has generators for various descriptions; and it has a final list of other generators that didn't fit anywhere else, some on the 2nd website affiliated.

This is something I use primarily for name generation, but I can see it as useful for GMs and DMs who need details out of thin air for games ... even people who write and just need a place to jump off when working on fleshing things out.

I can't believe that many of you haven't already discovered this resource, but just in case, I am sharing because I love this site.

Thanks,

I'll use this site probably the next time I write. It's actually hard to come up with relevant names.

That's really cool. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to share it to a gaming group on facebook that I go to.

Right now, I'm using it to name all my XCOM rookies, but I've used it in the past for lots of other purposes.
