Random Name Generator is an online tool that generates a list of random names for different purposes. There are different tools online that claim to generate random names but they have different limitations or tons of confusing options. Our random make maker makes things simpler by providing the necessary options without any restrictions. Just enter the basic details like language and gender and you’re good to go. 


Applications of Random Name Generator

Our Random Name Generator can be used for different purposes like coming up with actual human/baby names, character names, test data, etc. Here’s how this random name generator can be used for different purposes:

  • Character name generator
  • Fantasy name generator
  • Human name generator
  • Last name generator
  • First name generator
  • Male name generator
  • Female name generator

Talking about the test data, often software development processes involve feeding tons of test data.

As per Oxford Dictionary, a name is defined as “a word or words that a particular person, animal, place or thing is known by.” In other words, a name is something that’s used for the identification of anything. 

What our Random Name Generator creates is called “Personal name.” It’s a word or words used to identify a person. Since times immemorial, personal names are made up of two parts: First name or given name; Last name or family name. Many individuals also use a Middle Name.

Naming conventions and styles vary from region to region and language to language. This random name tool takes all those things into account and produces a variety of names to choose from in different languages. The study of proper names of humans is called anthroponymy. Let’s take a look at some of the important terms related to this field, and human names in general-


Personal Name

Personal name (also called full name) is the name by which an individual is known. In most cultures, a personal name consists of a given name and a surname (family name). In some cultures, personal name only consists of a single name. Interestingly, some tribes (ex: Machiguenga of the Amazon) do no use personal names and refer to each other as to how they are related.

Example: Kelly Kelley, Robert Chapman, George Patton, John James


Given Name

The given name is a part of a personal name that’s used to identify a person. It’s generally given to a person at the time of birth or after some time. 

Example: Kelly, Robert, George, John 



A surname is that part of a personal name that’s used to identify the family or community. Some cultures put surnames at the end, some put it at the start. Two or more words, often joined by hyphens, can be found in surnames in some regions.

Example: Chapman, Burton, Porter, Bush



Nickname is often an informal, substitute name of a person that’s often given in form of affection.

Example: Champ, Undertaker, Einstein, Firefly



Pseudonyms are fictional names used by people for different purposes like anonymity or staying out of legal trouble. It also includes pen names, user names, stage names, code names, superhero names, etc.

Example: Wonder Woman, Dr. Seuss, Woody Allen, The Unabomber



A mononymous person is one who is known by a single name. In modern times, the usage of Mononyms has declined. 

Example: Aristotle, Plato, Cher, Naruhito
