Pathfinder/Golarion Name Generator

New 1/19/17: Kitsune names have been added. The Chelaxian generator has been revised.

Gnome Names

Pathfinder's gnomes have long, ridiculous-sounding, tongue-twisting masculine names, and extemely short feminine names. The former was easily produced by blending lengthy names from the English, Anglo-Saxons, and Welsh: a combination so discordant that it produces fabulous gibberish. The feminine name generator is seeded from atypical three- and four-letter names.

Gnomes do have family names, but the generator for these is still under development.

Generate

When choosing names that start with a letter or letters, keep the prefixes short. One or two letters work best!

Advanced Options

Adjusting these settings can help fine-tune your name list, but if you make them too aggressive you might not get any results at all.
