Fantasy Names for Cool Game Characters

Here’s what we did:

1. We wrote down nearly every name in the bookstore’s fantasy section!
2. We made up some more for comic relief.
3. We took the best 3,300 names and sorted them.
4. We commissioned art from Maggie Parr.
5. We published a book and sold it mail-order through Dragon Magazine ™.
4. We made this app (20 years later).

With this app, you can:

- Easily browse the 3,300 fantasy names with the spinner
- Shake to find a random name for a particular character type
- Save, organize, and email your favorite names

The names are sorted into Male and Female for each of the following categories:

Fighter
Wizard
Healer
Rogue
Elf
Dwarf
Halfling
Gnome
Monster

NOTE: We sorted the names subjectively. You should use each name however you see fit. For that matter, pronounce them however you want too!
