Monster name generator?


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


Is there any good site with a program or whatever for generating proper names for monsters?


There's any number of fantasy name generators out there, or if your monster comes from a culture that uses RL names you could use a name generator for that culture.

John Johnson the great wyrm black dragon. XD

You could always go for Diablo II's approach: (NOUN)(NOUN)the(ADJECTIVE). My favorite was good ol' Pukeface the Hungry.

Fantasy Name Generator is the one I use.


In all seriousness though, there's just too much variation from one monster to the next to have a single name generator that would fit.
A goblin shaman, a medusa knight-errant and a daemonic minotaur are all going to have vastly different names.
What are you trying to come up with?


Just pick the most prominent ethnicity in your neighborhood that isn't actually represented at your table, and use names from that culture for all your bodies.

No way this could go wrong, right? XD

I do like the Diablo II approach.

That's the one I use too. It has tons of different categories to choose from. Elves, goblins, aliens, centaurs, fairies, etc. It even has a Pathfinder category under the Pop Culture section.

I was acutally thinking of this very thing. I even still have the Diablo 1 strategy guide, which lists all unique monster names. I guess most of them would work for demon, devil, or some other things (maybe aberrations and undead).
