Fake Name Generator

When trying to get some words down it’s really easy to get stuck doing things that are not productive, like trying to imagine a name for a character. The truth is someone’s name is not that important, especially in a first draft, so don’t let it slow you down! And from experience, if a script gets into production it is very common that the amazing name that you took hours to figure out for your protagonist is the same name as a real person who happens to do a similar job in Texas or New Brunswick or something, and you have to change it. I’ve used a few different sites, but this one is bookmarked because it’s fast and easy and gives a bunch of other data that might be useful. I usually press the generate button a few times and then mix and match.
