No more Tom, Dick and Harry!

Produce quick, reasonable and unique names for your characters or NPCs with the Deck O' Names. The cards or software can be used by a player who is having trouble finding a name for a character, or GMs can generate names on the fly.

The Deck O' Names is unique in that it takes segments of common names and mixes them in new ways. This creates fantasy or sci-fi names that sound reasonable to our ears. No more random names like "snarkl," or having to use "Bob." With these convenient cards, or the click of a mouse, you can produce interesting names even if you are unprepared for the "What's your name?" question.

With sets of 100 male and 100 female names, the Deck O' Names provides over 34,000 possibilities each! To use the Card Deck, simply print the appropriate pages, cut out the cards and mix. Then pull two, and combine the segments of your choice. Or use the javascript software: just start the appropriate program, generate between 1 and 1000 names at a time and select an interesting and different name.
