Random Name Generator

Select Table:


  1. Ceththall the Cowherd (petrified child drow elf female, hot tempered) asks party to slay Dragon, Gem (Amethyst -- Very young).

  2. Dragon, Gem (Amethyst -- Very young) is protected by Salamander, Noble.

  3. Salamander, Noble chased by party to the town of Arrowguard.

  4. The town of Arrowguard where party can find Uthbaen Blueback the Masseur (carefree short teen half-orc male, optimist).


Select a template from the drop down list, select the number of times you want to run the generator, and hit “Go” to create a random list of ideas, people and place names. Alternatively, you can pick from the list lower on the page instead of using the drop down select.


This PHP application draws from many sources. Basically, it is a replication of the model that TableSmith uses. A random generator and tables that link together. After I found out about TableSmith, I set about converting some of the older name templates in Names 2.01 (by Michael Harvey) into .tab format, as well as collecting some freely available TableSmith .tab files off the net, and additionally pulled some various random lists from RPG websites scattered across the web.
