random name generator

Random Name Generator, in Javascript

This random name generator is one of my results on toying with Javascript. It is sometimes useful if you want to tweak your fantasy a bit! It is also useful for generating names for characters in games (especially fantasy RPGs). You can try it right away as it is written purely in HTML and Javascript.

Sometimes the generator produces non-sensible and hard-to-pronounce names, like ‘Jugxyzthw’. There are plenty of them (well, yes, plenty), and since the algorithm does not rely on English dictionary it is unavoidable. But the rest are good names that can be used for anything from game characters to country names.
