What’s your name?

That’s the question, isn’t it? Giving names to your characters can be difficult. Fortunately, there is a great tool to generate names: Random name generator. ┬áThe tool creates character names based on the database of the US Census.┬áCommon, average or rare names are all generated randomly by the tool.
Some character names have already found themselves to my next novel. Just to name a few:

  • Jeffery Gibson
  • Lisa Jensen
  • Ellen Lyons
  • Karl Thornton

The tool generates ten or more names at a time and I pick the name that suits the character I have in mind. For example, Jeffery Gibson is commander of a navy frigate. And Lisa Jensen is his first officer. Thornton and Lyons are marines that are stationed in the frigate commanded by Gibson.
