Our fantasy name generators
Why should I use a fantasy name generator?
Whether you’re starting a fantasy game, novel or anything else that may require a believable fantasy name (or a large number of them), you may hit a wall quite fast. Many names are already taken by other gamers or authors, and the perfect one simply seems out of reach. This is why using fantasy name generators — with millions of possible ideas — is never a bad idea.
Random name generators are addictive
They really seem to be. On average, our users generate 16 ideas each time they use one of our fantasy name generators. And that’s no large surprise as some of them, like the pirate name generator, are downright funny.
Fantasy names really need to be memorable
The best epics typically have the best fantasy worlds. Where would world building be without names? Names for characters, names for cities, races, battles, spells…the list goes on. If you’re to create the next Gandalf the Grey or Albus Dumbledore, a bit of inspiration is not going to hurt you.
The Story Shack: committed to fantasy name generation
For years, The Story Shack has been providing an online platform for creators. As the platform grew, so did founder Martin Hooijmans’ passion for, and knowledge of, storytelling and web design. Growth is nothing without vision, and this is why it was a perfectly logical step to transform The Story Shack into a place where people not only come to host their work, but also to kickstart it. The first tool, a writing prompt generator, was born and turned into a success. It’s now used by thousands of storytellers every month to start their new projects.
Story ideas are not name ideas, however, so now Martin is committed to providing the full package: fantasy name generators, location name generators, character names, world names, weapon names and you can keep going. Enjoy, and all the best of luck with your projects!
