Download The Generator in PDF (to generate names via dice rolls)

Download The Generator in Excel (to generate random lists automatically!)

Below is a simple, thematic generator I created by breaking down many different names into syllables I associate with the region. I took apart Thayan names from official books, names from my own lists, names of evil deities, names of evil creatures, and so on. I tried to mix brief sounds (like "ag") with longer pieces (like "auros"), hoping that the variety would help people generate shorter and longer names with relative ease. I've used this generator a little bit on my own but I'm hoping it will be of use to a larger audience.

All you need to use the generator are d10s. You can roll 1d10 and halve the result (rounding down) to choose which chart to start with, roll once more to determine which vertical column to use, and again for the horizontal column. Roll three dice together to shorten the process and then arrange the pieces in the way that sounds best.

For instance, I grabbed three dice and rolled them at one time to produce: 7 (or 1/2, 3), 3, 7 = ja. I rolled the same three dice again to get 9 (4), 4, 7 = nora. Together they give me Janora (or Janor, if I want to remove the last syllable), which sounds just right to me.
