Frontier Town Name Maker

Make some names for towns on the so-called wild west frontier

A frontier is a political and geographical area near or beyond a boundary. According to some sources "Unlike a border—a rigid and clear-cut form of state boundary—in the most general sense a frontier can be fuzzy or diffuse."

Throughout history, there have been those who wanted to settle in these areas, often without regard to those who already lived there, or sometimes having to deal with the natural fauna and so on, wanting to take advantage of the resources that might be found there.

For some, the most (in)famous is that of the so-called "Wild West", when many new settlements were founded, some of which still exist in some form to this day. This PDF gives you a system for semi-randomly naming those settlements, or those inspired by them, with 20,000 possible outcomes and combinations.

Example outputs include...

  • Bittercreek
  • Goldbluff
