Coming up with placenames for your roleplay
Whether it’s placenames that your characters visit, or the setting of your entire game, sometimes you’ll have to come up with a new name of a town or city.
Choose a country and this generator will pick a random selection of real place names from a database of 5 million.
Chris Kentlea, veteran of Blue Dwarf has a great blog for roleplayers with loads of resources. This generator will create a city name, the name of country it’s in, the inhabitants, as well as some other stats.
This generates a fictional, but realistic-sounding place name.
Generates a list of fantasy-sounding locations and buildings to populate the setting.
Generates a list of modern city names, also there’s a similar Fantasy town name generator.
If there’s a great generator you use, feel free to post it in the comments. You also might want to name an entire planet, if you do – here’s some planet name generators.
