a.k.a. - Your Favorite Name Generator

By Robert de Jong

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Bored with your life? Wish you could be someone else? Maybe you yearn for the exciting life of a pirate. Or a Jedi....yeah! erotic dancer!! Sorry, we can’t help you with that (what would your mom say?!?), but we can at least help you come up with your alter-ego’s name.

Use this handy app to generate a new pirate name for your bad self. Or decide on your erotic dancer name. Or when the movie extras casting agent comes calling, have your Jedi name all ready.

Hey, why keep the fun to yourself? Generate new names for your friends. Make the meeting a little more tolerable by picturing your boss as “Salty” Squid Flint. If that politician were an exotic dancer, what would his (or her!) name be?

Oh. And it’s free. Why wouldn’t you grab this app?

a.k.a. includes the following name types:
• Pirate (male and female)
• Jedi
• Erotic Dancer (male and female)
• Soap Opera (male and female)
• Mafia (male and female)
• Fantasy (male and female) including Dwarf, Elf, Gnome, Human, Orc, Troll and Undead
• Spy
• Rapper
• Superhero
• Wild West (male and female)
• Ninja
• Wizard (male and female)
• Drag Queen
• Blues

... with more types on the way!

You also have the ability to copy the generated name into the clipboard. Just tap and hold the name until the Copy menu option appears.

If you've purchased the ad-free upgrade, click the bonus-feature Lanyard button to present the generated name in a familiar "HELLO my name is" label. This view auto-rotates when the device is oriented upside-down, such as when dangling from some lanyards. (When the view is back to right-side-up, dismiss it with a double-tap and the main screen returns.)

PLEASE NOTE: a.k.a. does not transmit any of the information collected to anyone at anytime.

If you feel uncomfortable inputing sensitive information into a.k.a., just use a different name. That is, a.k.a. does not know if you're lying. You're not obligated to tell it the truth!

Customer Reviews

I like this app but....

A lot of the information they ask IS really personal. Most of the questions they ask are the same questions most sites use as "Security questions". While I have an issue with using MY personal information in this app, I find it great when I'm using a fictional characters information so I can get a setting appropriate name. As a writer, I already have these personal questions thought out fort characters and it's easy for me to generate an appropriate theme name.


This app gave us stripper names that we both really liked on the first try. The last names were a bit much but we loved the first names. I don't know how this app did it but it did. Good work.

A bit creepy

The app itself is cool but the questions are a bit too personal like last names first names and the street you live on. I deleted right away!!
