Stories that fall into the area of fantasy span a huge period of time. There can be medieval fantasy to futuristic fantasy. The time periods might be fictional but we can relate them to periods of history or the idea of what our future would be. This tool is a random fantasy name generator for historic, medieval style fantasy. It does seem as though the fantasy genre is stuck in the medieval times but you can use this tool for anything.
The idea of this came from coming up with some more historic sounding names. A surname like Daggerheart is pretty cool, but it would be pretty weird for an average person to have a name like this. However, in the world of fantasy, a surname like this is kick ass. So if you are looking for a list of fantasy names, you are in the right place.
A large amount of the first names used here are actual names taken from our own history. There are also some crazy ones in there too. Use the form controls to pick between generating female names and male names. These names will work well for NPCs for games or even if you are a DnD player and want to populate your story with some cool characters.
If you like your own name and just want to push a fantasy spin on it. Take the surname that gets generated and put your own name in front of it. “Dan Lightningspear” for example. If you are a gamer looking for a character name in a fantasy game, this will most definitely do the trick for you.
