riters of fiction often prefer
distinctive names for their characters. If the characters are Germanic/English in heritage,
their names can be created from a variety of stem words or sounds. For example, in the
stories of Charles Dickens, we find characters named Honoria Dedlock, Harold Skimpole, and Josiah
Tulkinghorn. Jane Austen has Marianne Dashwood, Caroline Bingley, and Henrietta Musgrove.
Not every character is suited for this style of cognomen. But if you need a English or European name
for a character in your story, or would just like to name your dog, try one of the
Fictional Character Name Generators found below.
Male and female first names are real, though uncommon, and are randomly selected from a long list.
The last names are created from 2,3, or 4 name fragments. In all, the
Generator creates every name in real time from over billion possibilities for each gender.
Since these names are fabricated, you may see very odd results once in
awhile — please forgive and try again.
