Best Fantasy Name Generators - Robb Wallace (2023)

When I was writing The Silence In The Song I never used a fantasy name generator, simply because I never knew they existed. I have since discovered the joys of making random fantasy names for fantasy characters, fantasy worlds, towns, cities, magical spells etc. These generators work well as they base their creations on real names as well as other cultures and languages.

In this Best Fantasy Name Generators article I will look at the best generators out there, if like me you have dreams to be the next J.R.R. Tolkien or George R. R. Martin then you will need a lot of marvellous names for your books, for your worlds. Alternatively, if you are just a fantasy fan or for fun fantasy writer then these generators are also for you. The fantasy generators listed vary in complexity, some offering first names others offering first and second names others still having categories for humans, elves, barbarians, dwarves, fairies, dragons, fantasy book titles, and more.

You may even find the next Harry Potter or Bilbao Baggins, you may not. Random fantasy name generator are fun, so have fun and enjoy generating some cool and unusual fantasy names. So read and click to find your perfect fantasy names. If your looking for some fantasy writing tips afterwards check here.
