Babylonian name generator

This Babylonian name generator will generate either 10 male or female names depending on your choice. These names are actual names used by people who lived in an ancient civilization in Central-Southern Mesopotamia, which is now roughly Iraq.
There are many male names which were names of kings, you can usually tell them apart from the normal names as they're very long (probably including titles and/or last names).

Unfortunately there are far more male names than female names available, but this tends to be the way it goes through history. Men were seen as more important, thus their names were mentioned more often in books and documents.

These names could date back from about 2800 BC through 200 BC.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
