Updated 8/13/2013: Added more name pieces to create new names.

So, uh, clearly the Geth names and Inappropriate names sections aren't meant to be taken seriously.

Other than that, this thing poops out some decent alien names. I imagine it's good for stories, RP, multiplayer characters, or just if you're really bored, I guess.

I threw this together in a day since I needed it for a personal project. I don't know if I'm going to add any other aliens. We'll see if I feel like it in the future.

Made with Adobe Flash CS4, written in AS3.

For the Tumblr type of special fun-time, romp-around sharin' times:…


More generators I made:

This is a great idea. 
I have to admit though, I was going through the races and thinking "Hey, these are pretty good names!" And then I got to the Geth......and kind of broke down laughing.....and then completely lost it while looking at the inappropriate ones. 

Great job! XD

To this day, this is still the most hilarious work I've ever seen of yours. Never fails to leave me crumbling in fits of suppressed laughter.

Oh wow, this is very handy/useful!

This is awesome, though it's too bad that Hanar, Volus, Batarian, or Elcor aren't on here too. I guess there not enough info for a baseline for those races still kudos for the funny and serious names. Helps alot for inspiration or a much need laugh.

I don't know...Commander Boobstain Butthammer sounds like a pretty serious gent... XD

I can't tell you how hard I laughed when I continued through the Inappropriate names!  But the serious ones DID help!  Thanks a bunch!

Interesting.  I tend to use a greek random generator for my turian OCs, but I'll probably use this one as well from time to time.

Same here! What Specie is your main character?
Rainbowhawk1993 Featured By Owner May 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Actually it's for the new characters for the new leadership for the galaxy post-Destroy.
Alquatar Featured By Owner May 13, 2014
What exactly is that?
Rainbowhawk1993 Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
If you mean who are the new leaders, it's names for the new councilors and the new leaders for each race that I'm creating.

Can't remember if I've commented or not, but this has been a real help picking names for my characters. So thanks a bunch. Love

We need some drell up in here!

Other than that, this is actually quite good. The Geth ones are particularly ingenuitive. :icononionxdplz:
Harusaki-chan Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I definitely agree about the Drell names
DM-sama Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014
I can see why it would be difficult to make a name inventory for drell, though. We only ever meet like five in all the games, and there doesn't seem to be a particular pattern between their names, unlike, say, the Roman leanings of turians. Example:

Irikah (I assume it's a variant of Erika) - Norse

Thane - English/Scottish 

Kolyat - I...I don't even know.

Krios - A Greek Titan

It's like, "Bioware, WTF am I supposed to do with these?!"

When creating a Krogan name, make sure it's something you can say while belching. Don't believe me? ask Bakara how krogans name their young!

Ah, this reminds me of when I lived in New Zealand and they had that electronics store, Dicksmith. And nobody seemed to understand what was so funny about it. Perhaps I'm just an immature non native speaker savage.

I find Dicksmith funny and i live in New Zealand
