More information on A Random Name Generator

Welcome to A Random Name Generator (aRNG), the place where you can generate all sorts of random names for free. We've got a generic name but great results. Built by LitRPG author Paul Bellow, this is a sister site to LitRPG Adventures, a place where you can generate full backstories, magic items, dungeons, quests, skills, taverns, and a whole lot more.

I started this website to practice my web-dev skills and also highlight the LitRPG Adventures Workshop. Feel free to generate as many random names as you want here at this site. We can do fantasy names, modern names, westeros names, and much more. I will also add new generators to this website as time goes on.

More About Me

I’m a full time writer who has been creating content for over 40 years now. My current joy is penning words in the LitRPG genre. Over the last couple decades, I've been closely following NLG (Natural Language Generation) technology. When GPT-2 appeared, I quickly got to work using it for various projects, including creating Dungeons and Dragons character backstories.

While this website doesn't interact directly with the GPT-3 API (it can be quite expensive when you go for the highest quality), but some of the output you'll see here on this site is courtesy of GPT-3. I wanted to keep this website lean, clean, and super fast, serving you up all types of random names without a lot of hassles - or advertising.

I will be mentioning LitRPG Adventures every now and again, but rest assured this is not a direct sales pitch, nor am I using this site as an advertisement. My intention is to create a site that is fun to use and hopefully helpful. My goal is to have a long lasting positive impact on the RPG community and help you to generate names that will make your gaming experience more enjoyable.

If you do like this site, please consider spreading the word. Tell your friends, your family, and your gaming group about this site. I'd appreciate any help you can give me in making this site known to more people. I hope to be adding new generators to this site in the near future.

If you have any questions, need help with the site, or just want to let me know what you think of this site, please contact me, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Good luck with your name generation, and have fun!

Paul Bellow
