Fictional Character Name Generator

From “You Are Not Your Name

Writers 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.
