Deck O' Names: Modern Generator

Whether you are investigating mysteries in the 21st-Century streets of North America or boldly going where no one has gone before, the 'Deck O' Names: Modern' is ideal for your naming needs. From more common names like Jack Armstrong to ethnically diverse names such as Jodi Hong or Li Ming Wheeler, the 'Deck O' Names: Modern' has what you need to name on the fly!

Produce quick, reasonable and interesting names for your modern or future characters or NPCs with the easy name generator, the Deck O' Names. This program can be used by a player who is having trouble finding a name for a character, or GMs can generate names in advance, or during play.

The 'Deck O' Names: Modern' uses names from actual present-day name lists and includes a balance from different ethnic and national backgrounds to represent an ethnically diverse culture which might very well have a mix in the ethnicity of names. No more falling back on "Bob Smith" or having a player pick just "Fred" and pleading amnesia for why he has no last name. This convenient program also makes it easy for GMs to have NPCs with interesting names even if they are unprepared for the "What's his name?" question. With lists of 200 male and 200 female names, and as many unique surnames, there are 40,000 possibilities each!
