5 of My Favourite Name Resources

Whether you’re a gamer, a writer or a roleplayer, names can be an important part of your character creation. Over the years as I’ve graduated from roleplayer to gamer and then onto writer I’ve grown a collection of go-to generators and resources for finding names. Here are some of my favourite ones!

 

Dog Names by Low Chen Australia

Dog Names by Low Chen Australia

Yep, that says dog names, you’re not mistaken. It has an absolutely amazing list of different names, from characters to mythology to countries. It has so much variety that it makes it great for everything you might need a name for!

 

 

Behind the Name

Behind the Name

I love this site and its sister site for surnames because of its diversity and how easy it is to search or narrow down categories. It has a great selection and has resulted in many of my character’s names over the years!

 

 

God Checker.com

God Checker

I absolutely adore this site and use it all the time for naming my World of Warcraft battle pets. It has all the pantheons you can think of and then some – and unlike most mythological lists it doesn’t just list the main/popular deities. It lists them all, big or small, including spirits and other mythological creatures.

 

 

Fantasy Name Generators

Fantasy Name Generators

This has been my go-to site for Star Wars and World of Warcraft names for years, and it has grown into a huge site with tonnes of generators. There’s pretty much every video game you can imagine, DnD, pop culture, lists of creature names and even one for weapons! This is a must-have bookmark for any gamer.

 

 

Elvish Names List

Elvish Names List

As a part of Arwen-Undomiel.com, this section of the site has a list of male and female English names translated into Elvish. It’s a great way to come up with new character names, especially for fantasy stories and games. Mine, Heather, is Lothiriel 🙂

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this list and found some useful resources! Do you use name generators? Have any to share? Let me know!
