Quadratic Foundry Character Name Generator

In the grand tradition of the old WoW Guild Name Generator from Nick Yee, his organization, Quadratic Foundry, has created a Character Name Generator.

Rather than being completely random, the generator lets you specify a starting letter, an ending letter, or a string of letters you would like the name to contain.

Starts with ‘W’ and ends with ‘M’ gets you…

And it even gives you variants on the name with special characters if you simply must have a specific name but find that it has already been taken.

As with the WoW Guild Name Generator, the core of this was based on previous research done on World of Warcraft and the names harvested as part of that.

Anyway, if you’re stuck for a name you now have a new place to try.

    One of the early programs I wrote for my CP/M box in the late 1970s was a Tunnels \& Trolls character generator that would lineprint character sheets. The program included a Dwarf name generator: if I recall correctly, the generated names were of the form CVCCVC where C was a hard consonant drawn from a small list and V was a vowel. I think the middle consonants were constrained to be the same. A quick implementation today gave “FEMMOT”, “NOCCOM”, “MINNUM” and “XOKKIK” as its first four outputs.

    In retrospect, not bad for a 14-year-old working in Pascal with little help from anyone.
