I've had some rulers who I've named tyrant, thrown it into Google Translate, and got a new name back. I would agonize over them for hours and then I realized a few important things.1) A name isn't everything. If Ugroth, son of Balhatun of the Fashgar kingdom..your barista *ahem* either you are writing a hell of a mashup or something is out of place.3) Google baby names. They might be the "Alactria of the Emerald Forest" to themselves and be "Those damned tree folk" to everyone else.5) When in a pinch, I often used to roll sounds and syllables like they were numbers on a combination lock. it could be anything as long as it looks good cos i need a lot of names for races and stuff. Just bastardize it or mash it up as others have said.
You just have to be careful that the final product isn't easily mispronounced. Who gets spelled out as "$h*thead."Sorry for any typos. im in a dire need of names, i just cant think of any good ones, so is there any way for people to suggest good names and how do you think them up. - Carter - Lawrence - Cole - Isaac - Marcus - Finn - Zach - Curtis - Nicoli - Ben -Drew - Decker - Ann - Bell - Zoey - Joey - Daisy - May - June - Sarah - Lucy - Bella - Cora - Susan - Gwen Don't be afraid of borrowing/appropriating fitting names from other books/movies/etc. Couple vowels, throw in a handful of consonants, mash it up until you find something you like, then promptly write them down and pick it back up the next day. And, as somebody pointed out previously, random name generators are always a bag of giggles. Take some words, print them out, cut them up into syllables, throw them into a hat or air and grab a few to mash into a name.
What I'm doing for one of my projects is using this random name generator, but with a few rules. So instead of having a character called Jeff, I have one named Torben.
For each race/culture you have, restrict the generated names to a specific origin (or two closely related ones) so that related people have names which reflect that. (Which is the name of Thor's bear) Perhaps you can look through old Nordic names, or other cultures depending on what you want the names to sound like.
For example, maybe you can give all your cat-people names which sound Finnish/Swedish while the shadow elves have names that sound Chinese. As another example, the Icelandic name Kristjana may be altered into Krissiana. In two minutes, I suddenly have a blacksmith called Haskell, rather than spending 20 minutes staring at a wall trying to come up with a name.
And if the generator doesn't give you something you like, then just push the button a few more times : P When it comes to names, I just think up of a meaning that I want to impart first, before corrupting it. For my fiction, I use a lot of Greek or Norse names, with some of the meanings relating to the character. I have seen stories which deliberately use names from the real world like the Pirate Captain Jack Sparrow, the Mc Donald's Fleet, Harry Potter, etc.
well, i usually prefer the less used language (but i happen to have a little knowledge on them) like arabic, malay, or sanskrit. the second is simply turn my mind into a random-name-generator :p I'm horrible at coming up with names. Sometimes, I'll go for something Roman like Augustus or whatever I find fits well with a character, and sometimes I will pick a word and I will throw it into Google Translate. The last chapter I wrote I named "One Man's Trash" which, I mean, it's not the BEST chapter title but it works for the plot.
Extra hilarity for readers who speak that language and can "get it". Unless that's your running joke.2) Names fit best in their setting. A race is often called by an internal name, or by what others think of them. Then for everything else you just have to keep what Knave said in mind: i'm in a dire need of names, i just can't think of any good ones, so is there any way for people to suggest good names and how do you think them up.
(Which is the name of Thor's bear) Perhaps you can look through old Nordic names, or other cultures depending on what you want the names to sound like. I actually note down whatever names randomly pop into my head, and there will be someday when I will use that for someone.im in a dire need of names, i just cant think of any good ones, so is there any way for people to suggest good names and how do you think them up.it could be anything as long as it looks good cos i need alot of names for races and stuff.
