The average person is more than likely unable to name all of the planets in our own solar system. This can often make naming planets quite difficult. While saying it is difficult to name them, planet names are also very distinct. They have a certain sound to them that just sounds like a planet name. How can you actually come up with random planet names though? Well, the planet name generator below aims to take all of that trouble away!
You will find a planet name generator below that will give you the ability to create hundreds of completely random planet names. To make things even better, there is a filter that will give you the ability to generate names for specific planet types. Even from our own solar system, we have Venus which is a toxic planet, desolate planets like mars, various moons, a sun and our one and only, Earth! Quite a diverse range of planet types considering there are not that many planets in the solar system.
To get some name ideas for a planet, use the tool below. There is no filter enabled by default, so you should start out with a large range of different planet names to chose from.
Planet Generator – Random Planet Generator
A quick glance at any solar system maps and details about the planets we know of show one thing. There is a diverse range in size, appearance and the contents of the atmosphere of other planets in space. Size is also very much a relative thing. Our sun, which we consider to be quite large, is incredibly small when compared to some of the other stars out there. The truth is that we are absolutely tiny when compared to the infinite size of space.
For those who enjoy writing space fiction and are in need of a random planet generator, you are in the right place. I do hope to eventually be able to come up with some sort of visualisation tool to give the random planets a look as well as a name. For now at least, there is a filter that will allow you to generate planets of various types. Ice, toxic, barren and even names for suns.
To get started, scroll up to the planet name generator above and you can use this tool to generate 100s of different planet names. You are sure to find whatever you are looking for. Just one simple click to create your own planet name.
