The free software NewName automaticaly creates lists of random names.

You can choose the number of syllables and then select several parameters.

If the check box Syllables is checked, the program tries to generate syllables made of one consonant, one vowel and one consonant, some consonants are randomly dropped. Else random letters are generated.

The check box "Capitals" select the display of capital letters.

The lists of vowels ans consonants let you choose the letters you want to use. If you want a letter to appear more often, you can add it several times.

The check box "Compound word" allows you to add separator caracters as white space, dash, sharp, etc...

The check box "Numbers" allows you to add numbers to your names.

The check box "Not twice the same letter" force that a letter cannot be followed by the same letter.

You create a new list of 20 names with the button NewName.

If no names are interesting, you can make new lists until you find a name that suits your needs.

You can then select it and copy it to another software.

stop software patents
Say NO to software patents!

The European Union is considering software patents in Europe. This is a danger for software authors and software companies who do not use and do not need the patent system to innovate. They must be protected from owners of dubious granted patents.

Please sign the Petition to stop software patents in Europe.
