Random Name Generators

The names lists are pulled from the Story Games Names Project.

Place names are roughly based on historical geographic names, but are often fancifully degraded: Turkish, Syrian, Arabic, and North African for Umiyid, Italian for Venoz, Ionic Greek for Lyriamo, and Mandarin for Quenzhong. Torgisch names are invented, but vaguely Balto-Slavic.
