Fallout games have always allowed the player to build a character from scratch. Whether you are someone who spends hours perfecting your face only to wear a helmet for the rest of the game or you just click random and rush out the door, your character will need a name.
Fallout 76 is the first online game in the franchise and there is an encouragement for players to use a name for their character. When out in the wild, your online Gamertag will appear above your name rather than your character name. However, while you are in Vault 76, you will need to name your brand new character.
This tool will give you lots of random Fallout character name ideas. These names will all be influenced by the fallout lore and theme. Use the gender dropdown to get name suggestions based on the gender of your character.
Once you have your character setup, you can consider setting up a team to play with your friends. Check out the Fallout clan name generator to get lots of ideas to use for the name of your team that all of your characters can explore the wasteland in.
