Random Names List Generator

List Size (1  to  100 names): 



Program Information

This is a simple PHP program for generating lists of random names for recreational purposes, such as trying to come up with random name ideas for story characters or to use as data for testing a program that requires a list of experimental names.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Simply enter the size of the desired names list (1 to 100) and click either the
[Generate Male Names] button or the [Generate Female Names] button to
generate a new listing of up to 100 random names.   Each click will generate
a fresh, new, random names list.

Since the generated name combinations are totally randomized, they can form some very odd and unusual sounding names among the multiple billions of possibilities.

Some of the names data used by this program were obtained from the US Census Bureau web site at :
