Fantasy Name Generator

In Rachel Caine's novel Ill Wind she has a character named Rahel. Just remove the c from Rachel, you see? This approach to naming fantasy characters, by taking a name and altering it slightly, is what inspires this name generator. It's a method that can sometimes produce names that sound more natural, if you're lucky.

I find I get the best results from this generator by entering words from foreign dictionaries.

Enter a name

Enter a name between 4 and 10 letters long. Use only letters, and exclude any hyphens, apostrophes or numbers.

The usual disclaimer applies: these names are generated somewhat randomly, so there's no guarantee that some of the names that appear won't be under copyright or trademarked. Please check before using any in your fiction.
