winforms random names generator
Thinking of surnames can be a tedious task, whether the last name is for a character in a fictional book, game or for an alias. I am guessing you are here because you are an author and have found it difficult to think of a good surname. By a good surname I mean a surname that will go with a first name you may have already thought of, so I have designed this random last name generator around the idea that you have probably already thought of a first name you would like to use. You can add a first name which will stay constant while you iterate through the vast quantity of last names I have add to this generator. While creating this generator I found it necessary to have a first name present and to read both the first name and last name together, as some combinations of first names and surnames do sound better than others. You can also only generate last names by deleting the text in the textbox labeled: "First Name:", you can add or change the name in this textbox as you please and then once you click the generate button again, it will have changed to the new first name. I hope you find this tool helpful in creating a great book, game or what ever you may be using it for.
A random name generator is useful for anyone who needs, well, a list of random names! Uses include authors who want a realistic set of names they can put into fiction, roleplayers who want realistic names for their characters and programmers who want plausible looking names for test data. You can choose from a database of current names, or the census if you want a historical feel. And you can select either male, female or mixed names. Some names, of course, are unisex and can show up in any list.

I'm planting trees with my site. This name generator will generate 10 random American names, mostly English in origin, but with others mixed in as well. The USA is obviously an incredibly diverse country in a wide range of ways. A plethora of family histories and backgrounds leads to a whole lot of different names and surnames, many of which are covered in this generator. I did focus primarily on names with more English or European origins as other backgrounds are covered by many of the other real name generators on this site, but there are many names of different backgrounds so common in many US states you'll also find those in this generator.
