Description

Name Dice is a simple tool to create interesting fictional names. This app includes hundreds of first and last names, resulting in nearly endless name combinations.

Featured in MakeUseOf’s “4 iPhone/iPad Apps For Brainstorming Writing Ideas, Plots, & Characters”

Name Dice has received numerous 5-star reviews from writers of all ages and levels!

“I have NEVER been able to come up with names out of the blue when I'm in full writing mode! Sometimes I even put symbols in the text for names so I don't have to interrupt the flow of the story. With Name Dice, problem solved, quickly and easily. There's no complicated thing you need to do to open or close the app. Just a couple of taps and you have a random name for your character before you can say 'Holy Shakespeare!'” - E D Stewart

“This app is definitely one of my favorites. I've never really been that good with creating names for anything but the app more than makes up for my weak point. Most if not all names fit together perfectly and sound natural. There are no forced or absurd names each name is so strong that I feel as if the character practically comes to life as soon as I read it.” - Keystat

Amazing App!!!

This is an amazing app! When I write, I always have trouble coming up with names, and this app will help me. I think one of the best parts is that it doesn't pressure you to get the full version, because it is the full version. Yes, you heard me, the full version is free. Also, the names are realistic. This app can really help you.

Very Helpful

This app is really helpful for writing stories. If your like me and can't think of names off the top of your head. So if you are writing and need some names for characters. This app is the one to use. With just a tap on the screen you instantly have infinite names.

Until ...

This app was fabulous until just this minute. It gave me names that seemed to click and I loved every single one of them. Just now, though, the screen freezes and all I can do is go back to the Home screen on my iPad. Is anyone else having this issue?
