About Our DnD Name Generator
Master the Dungeon’s DnD Name Generator is a list based generator. We don’t ram prefixes and suffixes together to make weird combinations. That being said, this name generator relies on all sorts of name data from from multiple sources to give you the best names for your Dungeons and Dragons character.
Fantasy names often have their root within medieval history. This is especially true for our human names list, as we use a lot of medieval names as well as names taken from recent census data.
For fantasy races we pull most of our names from classic fantasy literature and role playing sources (including The Player’s Handbook) which in turn have their own structure. Character names are incredibly hard to think of on the fly because so often you need to know common names for the world you’re playing in before you can pull something off the top of your head. To learn more read our post on How to Create Good Character Names.
