The Fantasy Name Generator

When writing an epic fantasy novel, there is a lot of work to be done regarding names. So how do you come up with those names, especially all those minor characters? Why not check out the Fantasy Name Generator to get you started? You give the software interface some parameters about the kind of name you want (consonant-heavy, vowel-heavy, really long names, names with apostrophes, names of Greek origin, names of Latin origin etc.) and let it rip.

We asked the generator to give us some good fantasy-inspired insults. Twerpclod, Twerpfumble, Footnit and Skullthimbletwit immediately popped up, which will all come in handy the next time we need to insult someone at the local tavern.
