A Tip for Finding New Character Names

If you are looking for plausible but odd names for your characters, just check your spam filter. It's full of fake names.
Here are a few from mine:
Millicent Ramirez
Bruno Christensen
Adolfo Petersen
Ernest Malone
Ronda Livingston
Cesar Byrd

Now tell me that Cesar Byrd isn't an awesome character name!

Your spam filter is also a good place to find business names, but I wouldn't use those names for any of your commercial projects, in case the original owners take offense. But for your personal rpg group or for non-commercial fanfic, go ahead and use Defender X or Shadowfall Productions or whatever strange business names you find in your spam filter.


  1. From your blog, we can get more unique character of names. Your names collections are good. As like, I am also want to do for my beloved people to providing the Furnace Replacement Services In Fort Worth TX and resolve your issues.
