A Simple Random Name Generator (in Excel)

Here’s a simple tool I developed to create random characters (great when you’re in the middle of writing down an idea and don’t want to stop to figure out a good name for a character).

It has quite a large variety of first and last names, along with character traits and professions. It’s written in Excel so you can see how I did it, and modify it to your own tastes.

You can get it here: Name Chooser Expanded

Let me know how you like it 🙂

    This is PERFECT. I run RPGs for my gaming group, and often we do tiny pickup games in the system of Dread, for which I generate characters.

    This is exactly what I need to generate a set of characters quickly based on whatever I want the criteria to be. In this case, it will be a set of steampunk paranormal investigators, and this list will have their name, their specialty, and the names of their gear.

    You are my hero forever.

    Cool, glad it’s of use 🙂 and I LOOOOOVE Steampunk! I’d love to hear about your game if you have a blurb somewhere you can send me. Have fun,
