Play On Quadratic Foundry, they have found through the research of data from World of Warcraft that 90% of guild names follow a specific set of patterns. This has allowed them to create a Guild Name Generator that uses a weighted dictionary based on WoW guild names. If you go to the page linked, it will create 10 guild names for you. Hit refresh to see 10 more.
Some detail about how the name generator functions is on the
Play On Quadratic Foundry site here.
The names generated certainly “feel” like WoW guild names. I wonder how many of them end up being the names of actual guilds.
For now, I am going to run out and check on “Twinks of Samurai Tea Guard.”
Addendum Sep. 19, 2018: This article has been updated to point to the guild name generator’s new home at Quadratic Foundry.
