Ye Olde English Random Name Generator Text Files

Recommended Posts

While Forgive Us has a nifty table for generating random names for your Norwich adventures, with only twenty surnames and first names I started getting some repetitive results as the campaign marches on.  I needed something which would give me many more names. Like thousands!
 
Fortunately sites like Last Gasp provide the answer with the ability to make your own home-grown random generator of whatever you like!
 
While this way cool tool does have some built in limitations, Zak S. recommends Text Mechanic web site. It allows you to generate text files of every combination of table entries so you can import this back into your random table generator and avoid its individual table entry limits.
 
I then googled seventeenth century names to compile a large list of names. This has given me over 22,000 possible male names and just over 10,000 female names.
 
 I'm posting up the text files I created to make these nifty bookmark insta links. you need to just copy and paste the text into the Last Gasp table making java tool to accomplish this.
