Random name generator update

NameStation’s random domain name generator is for creating generic pronounceable names with no meaning. Today’s release includes several enhancements:

  • Improved AI with keyword searches. Using a keyword Prefix used to create names that couldn’t be pronounced such as nextrtis or playeuan. Searches with Prefixes are now showing much better results.
  • Keyword Suggestions are now enabled for Random search.
  • For taken domains, a link to open a popup with quick alternatives
    These are only displayed when the Hide Taken setting is turned off.
  • Finally, Twitter and Facebook buttons have been added for quick sharing, should you feel that someone else might find this useful.

Tips & Techniques:

  • Generating words with partial keywords (such as Innov or Inno instead of Innovative) can produce good results. A single character can be used to create names starting with that letter or number.
  • Try searching with other languages in the same language family. Running the name generator with languages like German, Italian or even Latin may result in unique names that sound good in English.
    Of course, you can experiment with exotic languages  such as Klingon (the constructed language spoken in the Star Trek universe) or Sindarin (a fictional language devised by J. R. R. Tolkien).
  • Click Select under the Prefix textbox to display a list of short Prefixes and related words (if a keyword has been entered).

As always, we’d like to hear from you so that we could keep improving NameStation!
