Play On: Guild Name Generator

Over at 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.

    Other names I like from the generator:

    Elitist Squirrels
    Origami Suicide
    Midnight Treason

    You know I’m hooked when I have to copy out my favorites before I hit refresh.

    These would also make great band names. Somebody go tell Dave Barry.

    It’s quite scary how acurate those “fake” names are. Almost all feel like names taken from the game. Does it say something about WoW comunity? Hmmm

    I love “Blood of Light Pirates.” But at first, I took it to mean some really skinny buccaneers were bleeding all over the place. :P

    Blood of Light…I have to remember that. Wilhelm, “Origami Suicide” is hilarious!

    Thanks for the link!
