Random Name Generator

What names:



    For those who are looking to create a random name or who are looking for a name randomizer, the Random Name Generator is the perfect tool for you. The tool is quite easy to use. The first step is to choose the actual way you want to use it. There are two distinct ways it can be used depending on whether you want to create entirely new random names or if you want to use a name randomizer as a name picker from a list of names you already have.

    The name randomizer from a list is pretty simple and straightforward. Once you choose it, a box will appear and all you need to do is paste your list of names into the name randomizer. The first way this can be used is as a random name picker. In this case, you choose the number of names you want to appear. For example, if you're picking a single winner from a list of names, you would choose "1" and the one name generated would be the winner. If you wanted the random name picker to choose two winners, you would choose "2" and two names from the list would appear. Another example of using this as a name picker is if you want to make two teams out of a list of names. If you had 30 people on the list and you wanted two teams, you would choose "15" and the fifteen random names that showed up from the list would be one team while the other 15 names would be the other team.

    Another option is to use the name randomizer to randomize all the names on your list. In this case, you aren't using it as a random name picker, but as a true name randomizer. For example, if you have a list of 20 students that you want to put into a random order, you would choose "20" and all of the students' names would appear in random order. This can be a great way to assign the names on the list to something specific. For example, if you have a list of chores for your kids to do and they are complaining that you don't assign the chores fairly, you can use the name randomizer to make those assignments. It can be useful for school student assignments and work-related assignments as well where it's important for the assignment to be fair and random.

    The other use for this tool is as an actual new name generator. In this case, the first step is to choose the number of random names you want to be displayed. You then need to indicate whether you want female names, male names, or a combination of the two. Finally, you get to decide if you want only first names, last names, or full names. Once you've made these choices, you hit the "Generate Random Names" button and a list will appear. The tool has thousands of girl names and boy names, as well as thousands of last names. Together, they can create hundreds of thousands of random names.

    People who stumble across this free name generator often wonder why it's better than the typical way to find names in a baby book or from a long list of names on a website. There are a few distinct advantages that come with using this free online name tool that you can't get with a name book or long list of names. Most importantly, you have the option to specify the exact types of names you want to see which isn't possible in a name book or from a list of names. For example, if you only want to see girl names or boy names that begin with the letter "S" you can indicate that on this name generator to get exactly the names you want.

    A second benefit of this generator over traditional ways to search for names is that you get to determine the exact number of results you want to read each time. Long lists and books filled with boy and girl names can easily become overwhelming. It can then be difficult to give each name the proper consideration it deserves. By seeing names in bunches that are easier for you to digest, you're much more likely to find the perfect name with the Random Name Generator than with other ways of searching for names.

    The above-mentioned two benefits can make this random name generator a wonderful way to search for any number of types of names you may need. The best way to see if this free name tool would benefit your name search is to spend some time using it. Another option is to read some of the many different ways people who visit this name generator commonly use it.

The fun aspect is that even if you're a man, you can choose a female name, or if you're a woman, you can choose a male name as your pen name.

By doing this you can see how each site uses your information since the random name you use is unique to that specific website.

    Online Activity

    There are many people who are online who wish to keep their identity secret for a variety of legitimate reasons. For those who don't use their real name, finding a random name is important so they can remain anonymous. Again, it can often make sense to create a number of random names for online activity specific to certain groups or websites you frequent so you can follow exactly how your information is being used.

    Change Your Name

    If you have a name that you don't like or you come from a foreign country where your given name is difficult for English speakers to pronounce, coming up with an alternative name to go by makes a lot of sense. The fun part is that you get to name yourself which most people never get the chance to do. You should spend a lot of time considering which random name best suits you and your personality since it's a name you will likely use for a long time. Creating a new name for yourself can make life easier for you and those around you.
