"Ever been stuck for your character's name? Ever held up game play because you could not tell the other player what your character's name was? Don't just want a load of randomly rolled letters giving your character the name: Fgtuyss Uodng?
Here are lists of possible names and words that I hope you can use to alter, change or re-connect to make interesting names for your characters. It is not suggested that all of these names are suitable for contemporary characters, and I would advise you check any name with your DM before use and try to keep the feel of your character in finally deciding what their name could be.
Included with each name is a pronunciation guide, the meaning of the word or name and the earliest rough date that I can trace it to.
Why only for characters? It does not have to be...these could be used for places, towns, groups etc. Your imagination is what led you here, so use it to good effect. Any suggestion please do not hesitate to drop me an E-mail."
