Name Box

By Amy Nugent

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Name box is a name generator for writers, expectant parents, or anyone in need of a pseudonym! This app draws from a variety of languages to create real-world names based on the criteria you choose. Just select the languages you want to draw from and tap GO. Tap a name to hold onto it while you keep looking for a second. Tap again to release it.

Name box will also keep a list of all the great names you've come up with. Anytime you find a good one, just tap the plus to save. You can also browse/edit the list at any time or email it away.

- over 44,000 names in the database from 11 different language groups
- randomize a new name from any combination of sources
- use alliteration to match the first letters of both names
- keep a list of great names you've made and email it to a friend
- beautiful retina display graphics
- universal for all iOS devices

Great little writing tool!

I love tools like these for writers. Love the favorite tool - I can save lots of names when I'm in the first stages of a story. Would like more control over each name - like I'd like to have different press for each field so can make a German, Scandinavian Irish person or have a girl with a Scottish first name, Arabic middle name and Celtic surname. Would love way more categories like behind the name. Great app, tho and awesome for .99. What about a tool to randomize from your address book? ;)


Great tool for writers. I've always had trouble coming up with names for my characters. I love that I can choose the sex and nationality for a character. Very nice. I like to make several lists one of male and one of females. That way I have them handy.

Quite good

It is a great app. I write fan fiction so this really helps me a lot. It really is a great app to have. For me coming up with names it so hard so this is a great tool.
I could opt for a back button and more nationalities like Irish.
