Customer Reviews

This needs another positive review.

I love writing ethnic characters, but I struggle to remove my Eurocentric bias from the equation, and this makes the process so much easier. Video game characters are also fun to name through a randomizer, and I absolutely adore reading about all sorts of etymologies and origins. No real complaints here. Although I would like more fonts and backgrounds! :)

Worth my buck - Great for gamers

Earlier reviewer, just check settings. Well worth my dollar. I would have used it for baby names and shower games too. Today I was looking for names for my Space Marines. Done. You can pick nationality, ancient, mythology, etc. supports multiple selects (thank you) so that you can mix just the types of names you want.

Love it!

It's great. All I suggest is a search of name meanings. (:
