Click here to generate a set of character names

This character name generator produces fictional names to use in stories. Writing projects often stall as the author ponders the right name to call the person they've just introduced to the scene. Names are so important - providing gravitas, comedy or dynamism to a character if chosen well; the opposite if chosen badly.

Characters in contemporary drama are often called something dull and uninspiring like: Morgan or Nolan. Sometimes writers go to the other extreme and produce weird Dickensian character names such as Chuzzlewit. This generator is the answer.
